“Similarly, over 7,000 lesson videos and 4,000 audio lessons have also been produced and uploaded on the platforms for students at the secondary education level.
“Galaxy backbone, one of the Federal Government agencies has also agreed to reserve proportion of their cyber space for us and we had also pleaded for more as we would expand as we move on.”
