He observed that users of the app would have access to learning contents based on their curriculum, while the usage of the app will minimize the wrong usage of android devices by students.

The Director PRS called on the media to partner the Ministry in propagating the message of the Nigeria Learning Passport.

For his part, the Technical Assistant to the Enugu State Commissioner for Education, and State Team Lead, Nigeria Learning Passport, Mr. Celestine Ngwu, while giving insight into the app, observed that United Nations Children Fund (UNICEF) in collaboration with the Federal Ministry of Education invented the Nigeria Learning Passport, which is the databank for teaching and learning.

Ngwu noted that the digital learning device, which was developed by Microsoft, was launched in Nigeria on March 24, 2022 to encourage independent learning.

The Commissioner’s aide while calling on stakeholders in the Education sector to encourage their wards to make good use of the app, noted that one can assess him/herself at the end of each module on the app.
