The Sissala East MP, Madam Sulemana Alijata Gbentie with support from the Ghana Investment Fund for Electronic Communications (GIFEC) has donated 15 computers each with UPS to some second-cycle institutions in the district.

Schools that benefited under this move by the MP are the Tumu and the Kanton Senior High Schools (SHS)respectively.

The move is primarily geared towards making ICT a solid programme in schools and assist students gain inclined knowledge, as the latter has become a compelling trend in contemporary education.

Donating the facilities to the schools, the MP urged the students to endeavour to take advantage of the opportunity created for them with regards to the learning of ICT so that they will be computer literates in future.

The Digital ambassador for ICT in the Sissala East District, Abu Haruna joined the MP in her donations to these beneficiary schools.

He said British Council in its ICT programmes has managed to establish the district as a digital hub, and has appointed him to act as an ambassador to co-ordinate the training and facilitation of ICT in all the communities under the district.

This he noted was targeted at eradicating computer illiteracy across-board in all the areas of the district.
