The Minister of Communications, Mrs. Ursula Owusu Ekuful, has hinted that the government’s policy to roll-out free internet for tertiary institutions and Senior High schools in the country will be launched in October this year.
She made this known at the celebration of the 2020 Girls in Information and Communications Technology (ICT) Day at Nkwanta in the Oti Region and said the lack of trained people, especially girls, to occupy vacancies in the ICT sector, limits girls’ participation and career development in the technology industry adding that ICT field is one of the major sectors that give a boost to the economy.
The event organised by the Ministry of Communications was on the theme: “Expanding horizons, change attitudes”. She encouraged the girls to put in their best effort and become ICT champions in Ghana and beyond. Is it a prudent idea? Why?
