The Director, Information Communication Technology (ICT) Prof. Anthony Akpan has charged participants at the just concluded Advance Digital Appreciation Programme for Tertiary Institutions (ADAPTI) training to put into practice the knowledge they have acquired from the five-day training for the best interest of the university.

The Director gave the charge at the closing ceremony of the training held at the E-Library of the University.

He said the training, which is a federal government initiative, is ran by the Nigerian Communications Commission (NCC) to help salvage the technological aspects of our learning as well as improve productivity in our daily work through digitization.

While thanking NCC for choosing the University of Calabar for the third time in a row to participate in the training, he appreciated the Vice Chancellor of the University, Prof. Florence Obi for the efforts made to make the training program a success.

The University Don, who encouraged trainees to make good use of the knowledge gained by making the 'computer' a friend through daily practice, appreciated the trainees for their peaceful conduct during the training.

According to him, "the moment what's learnt is not put into practice, it will turn out to be a waste, producing no results stressing that efforts are being made to get computers to interested participants at an affordable price". He Said.


Reacting, Mr Olorunfemi Temitope from Digital Bridge Institutes who spoke on behalf of the ADAPTI training team, appreciated the Management of the University of Calabar for providing the enabling environment for the training to thrive.

He urged participants to keep on practicing and improving on the knowledge they have been imparted with even as he thanked them for their matured conduct throughout the training.

Speaking on behalf of the trainees Prof. Eucharia Nwagbara thanked the Vice Chancellor of the university and the Director of ICT for giving them the privilege to learn more about computer systems for ease of work.

She maintained that the gains recorded from the training would be judiciously put to use for the benefit of the university.
