“Lack of ICT facilities is hampering the effective teaching of the subject and academic performance of the students because we don’t have computers, teachers teach I.C.T with their personal laptops, due to that controlling the class can be quite difficult, we want to thank MTN for this gesture and we hope other corporate bodies will emulate the gesture,” she said.
