He explained that the Digital Knowledge Democracy professionally analyses the needs of the consumer and makes sustainable prescriptions that are affordable with flexible payment terms.

According to Ekeh the first phase of the Digital Knowledge Democracy, entitled e-School Project was a package designed to help schools to attain world-class standards without the usual financial stress.

ICT infrastructure like computer laboratory, digital library, website domain, school portals and the Zinox wireless cloud are offered with tangible incentives that include free training, free website designs, free e-mail for Senior Staff and free internet access up to 1km radius.

Ekeh explained that the e-School Project also offers a staff computerization scheme and a students' computer ownership scheme. He said that one of the novel additions to this offer was the Zinox Wireless Cloud which provides internet connectivity up to 1km radius.

While launching the e-School Project in Lagos and Enugu, Mrs Vivian Abii, the Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of Computerise Nigeria Project noted that no IT company has invested on marketing themes and schemes as much as the CNP, resulting in the provision of, most times, discounted and subsidized systems to consumers. She said that the e-School was a special anniversary gift for educational institutions.

She urged schools to take advantage of the e-School bouquet of benefits. She singled out the ZX Portal which opens the way for a range of online student teacher interactions from admissions, to lectures, to school administration, to intra and inter campus connectivity. She revealed that the first point of contact for international and other assessor agencies is the school's website and the CNP would completely take the website design off the schools. Mrs. Abii emphasized that free training is a major benefit of the e-School Project.

The Computerize Nigeria was set up in 2001 by the Board of Zinox Technologies Limited to catalyze the adoption of the computer as a major tool of work and play. Currently, the Computerize Nigeria Project is involved in the computer ownership scheme of 26 Federal universities.
