A beneficiary, Ganiyu Quadri, a 100-Level Mathematics Education student, said he was delighted when he received the tablet, noting that he did not have a smart phone to search for information on the Internet. “The tablet will give me the break to do research on-line and also widen my knowledge, especially on the mathematics field,” he said.
