Financial technology provider, SystemSpecs, has empowered Nigerian children by motivating on ideas on various means to enhance the country’s national security through technology.
A statement by the organisation on Tuesday said the technology firm motivated the top three students in both senior and junior categories of its 2021 Children’s Day Essay Competition, themed ‘Building a more secure Nigeria using technology’.
The Managing Director, SystemSpecs, John Obaro, praised the patriotism and ingenuity of all the participants in the essay competition.
“For our dear children who have taken it upon themselves to think about the use of technology in addressing what is probably the biggest challenge of our country today, security, we say thank you,” he said.
Obaro said it was great to receive diverse suggestions from children on how to solve this pressing challenge.
“It has given us hope that we have a foundation on which we can build the future of the country,” he added
In his remarks, the Senior Special Adviser to the President on Education, Mr Obafela Bank-Olemoh, said the SystemSpecs’ essay competition was a step in the right direction, and urged the leadership to continue with the good work.
The Corporate Social Responsibility Lead, SystemSpecs, Sandra Eghagharemo, said the competition had grown bigger and better this year, with a 30 per cent increase in entries received and a wider spread.
Rita Ohiaeri of Queensland Academy, Okota, Lagos, emerged winner in the senior category; while Lagooz College, Iyana Ipaja, Lagos, Chetachi Mbalu emerged winner in the junior category.
