At the end of a review meeting on January 18,  the Ministerial Task Force, said that so far, a total of 47.8 million NINs have been collected by the mobile operators.

Teach For Nigeria, a non-profit organization focused on improving the quality of education for Nigeria’s most underserved children has announced the launch of its Radio School program called the Teach for Nigeria Radio School.

The Radio School was launched as part of Teach For Nigeria’s commitment to bridge the wide education inequality gap for children in poor and underserved communities, with limited technology and lack of internet connection which has been exacerbated by the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on the Education sector.

The Radio school is a new learning method designed to complement the traditional classroom teaching approach, structured to deliver educative learning content in Numeracy, Literacy, and STEM for Nursery and Primary school students.

The radio school program will launch first in Ogun State via Ogun State Broadcasting Corporation (OGBC 90.5 FM) and Sweet 107.1 FM on 18 January 2021.

Commenting on this, Folawe Omikunle, CEO, Teach For Nigeria said: “Our vision of ensuring quality education to all children in Nigeria is what gives us a great sense of urgency and responsibility to respond to the pandemic while unlocking the potential of our future leaders.

“Today is only a ceremonial event, but to fully harness the potential of this initiative, we need each one of you on this call to spread the word and ensure that as many pupils in Ogun state receive the information to access the radio school. 

“Indeed, these are challenging times for our nation, but Education cannot wait for the crisis to end. .”

The Radio School program would air on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday at 7 pm.

We are positive that this program would ensure that students in the state and beyond continue to learn remotely despite the disruptions caused by the covid19 pandemic.
