Teachers as pivot of development who played a great role in the upbringing of children therefore needed to be taught to understand ICT so as to impart it to their pupils.

Alhaji Issaka Saliah, Upper West Regional Minister, urged students to use the computers for activities that would improve their lives by exhibiting the benefits of the usage for others to emulate.

He called on all beneficiary schools to take good care of the computers so that the company would be encouraged to assist other schools with ICT facilities.

Mohammed Alhassan Shaban, a course participant, thanked rlg Communications for organizing the training for them saying, it was crucial that every teacher learnt ICT in a modern society.
