Onwodi, on his part, was conducted around the premises, where he inspected the Information and Communication (ICT) installations at the centre.

It has been observed that Onwodi, in the past couple of weeks, has been on tour of study centres across the country to inspect and assess ICT installations.

Although the ICT guru has not been vocal on the purpose of his tour and inspection of ICT facilities at the study centres, his assignment might not be unconnected with managements desire to up its game in overhauling ICT equipment and to mobilise internet connectivity at all study centres across the country.
