Educators Highlight Importance Of ICT On Education, Advocate Funding

The founder, Bafuto Institute of Management and Information Technology, Lagos, Banjo Adekunle, has called on government at all levels to support the funding of Information and Communication Technology in the education sector.

Adekunle who is also the Director of Studies, stated this at the 18th convocation and award presentation of the institution, where about 103 students graduated with diploma in various fields of computer operations.

He added that ICT was essential to every sector of the economy particularly the education sector, adding that a large population of young people had proven that they could contribute immensely to the expansion of Nigeria’s economy through technology.

“With the prevalence and emergence of new technologies like Block chain, Artificial Intelligence, Deep Learning, Machine Learning, Augmented Reality, Virtual Reality, and so many others, ICT now has something to offer to every field, and take them to a whole new level. This will, in turn, create more job opportunities, generate more revenue, boost the economy, solve pressing problems and in the long term, make the world a better place.

The convocation lecture titled, ‘ICT: Panacea to Institutional Maladministration’ was delivered by the Director, Centre for Information, Technology and Management, Yaba College of Technology, Dr Ranmi Adigun.

Adigun noted that technology was helping to expose corruption, fraud, injustice, saying it could also help the country fight insecurity.

He said, “We can use ICT tools to identify Boko Haram, enhance teaching of students as it will invariably appeal to their senses which will help them to comprehend better.”
