The Vice Chancellor of University of Nigeria (UNN), Prof. Benjamin Ozumba says the institution has concluded plans to begin the production of laptop computers. The Vice Chancellor also said the University will be assembling tractors. Both the laptop and tractors would be produced at the new science and technology incubator called “Roar Nigeria Hub” located within the University campus at Nsukka.
Prof. Ozumba had in 2015, taken a step to make students of the University ICT compliant by making laptop compulsory for every student, a move which lead to negative reactions that caused a change in the policy.
This is a welcome development. But we hope this will one day become a reality. So what do you think about made-in-UNN laptops? Would like your own school to also produce laptop or do you feel this is one of those stories? I see it as a welcome development.
