Savana Signatures executive director John Stephen Agbenyo said he was happy with the training and his company will work hard to ensure girls are in the same level with boys in an effort of improving ICT usage in schools.
He noted that girls have been neglected while the boys projected as superior in the ICT usage and applications which must be addressed for the country to forge ahead in achieving its ICT policy.
Through the training, the government would be able to implement ICT use in its departments.
Tamale Metro’s deputy director of education Hajia Samata Bukari Gifty advised pupils to take to ICT and work hard since it involves almost all aspect of their education.

Through it, they would succeed in other subjects, she said
She further noted that ICT had made teaching and learning simpler and students are expected to develop interests in the subjects by studying seriously, discipline, dedicated and to make maximum use of the available opportunities.

Agbenyo concluded by saying, the girl’s clinic in ICT would be an annual event to roll out to more schools in the country.
