UNN to Begin Production of Laptop Computers

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.

    it is good and knowledgeable one although we are into the world of modern technology.I wil really appreciate if this idea of New development(laptops)wil be brought into our institution inorder to help those that didn’t have the privilege to attend computer class.

  21. Is a very nice idea if they work hard on it. But they shouldn’t enforce students to buy laptop to avoid stealing..The university should start with the change. Soon, It will become a reality that will change not only the university but Nigeria as well…

  22. That’ll be epic, possibility of it starting in unn, then I believe the idea will be widespread and maybe we c an have a car… made in Coou (29)

  23. I think thats a good idea because it will make the students to be creative and knowledgeable…
    This will make them also to be computer literate

  24. Well is a great idea and it will make them to learn fast .

  25. this is a good improvement for institution like unn , firstly I will not like this decision in ansu because one no network for browsing and also electricity in the lodges only those in hostels will enjoy this development.. so, they should first of all provide this necessary needs before raising up a good decision like this in our university…
