Firm Donates ICT Centre To 6 Division, Nigerian Army


The IHS Towers Nigeria Ltd has donated an Information Communication Technology Centre (ICT) to 6 Division Nigerian Army (NA). 
Handing over the centre which is located at 6 Division Training School Complex, Port Harcourt Barracks, Rivers State, the Director Sales, Mr Akeem Adesina who represented the Chief Commercial Officer of the company, Mr Olufemi Arosanyin, disclosed that, the initiative was one of such programmes by their company aimed at empowering servicemen with digital tools required for military technological advancement. 
He stated that the role of ICT in the military cannot be overemphasised as it is helping to save millions of lives by strengthening national security, enabling the easy identification of potential threats, provision of accurate data and most importantly the development of swift response mechanisms in times of crises.
Mr Olufemi said, the centre would provide requisite training needed in this digital age to further improve the efficiency, operational activities and administration in the military.
He expressed optimism that beneficiaries will gain digital literacy skills that will boost their self-confidence and expose them to the vast opportunities for self-learning, advancement and digital development that technology offers.
The centre which is powered by solar energy according to Mr Arosanyin, would serve as a model and has been made conducive for learning. The IHS also guaranteed internet access to the centre for a period of one year.
Commissioning the centre last Thursday in a brief ceremony, the General Officer Commanding 6 Division NA and Land Component Commander (LCC) JTF OPDS Maj. Gen. Jamil Sarham expressed his appreciation to the company on behalf of the Division and the Chief of Army Staff.
