Nigerian telecoms company Globacom has launched Glo Mobile Tutor a service targeted at secondary school students in Nigeria. The company said the service would empower the students and would make education more easily accessible.
According to Bolanle Ogundogba, Sales Director, Glo 1 Enterprise, the subscription-based service is available to every child in all the 774 local government areas of Nigeria.
“Globacom is committed to the development and education of the Nigerian child,” she said. “Glo, having realized the relatively low literacy rate in Nigeria and Africa, due to deficits in educational infrastructure and insufficient manpower needed to impart knowledge, found the need to introduce this service with the application and contents provided by Roducate.”
She also announced the service is loaded with both West African and British Curricula and has been endorsed by the relevant educational bodies such as the Joint Admissions and Matriculations Board (JAMB), the National Educational Research Development Council (NERDC) and Federal Ministry of Communication Technology.
She said, “We also wish to encourage parents and guardians to avail their children and wards of this laudable technology that would enhance their academic ability, and ultimately, an enlightened society. They can subscribe to Glo Mobile Tutor service at pocket-friendly tariffs and rates designed to give back to our valued subscribers.”
