Computers enable people to communicate all over the world, and you will seldom find a business that doesn’t use computer services. Of course, this is all down to the development of the Internet. For Nigeria to become a more prosperous place, it must trade with other countries worldwide. Although there are many elements to this which haven’t yet been fulfilled by Nigeria, educating its citizens in computer use will improve the country’s trade situation vastly in the future. Nigerian companies will have the ability to communicate with suppliers and buyers from around the world.
What’s more, computer education helps the children of Nigeria, most of whom have grown up in absolute poverty, see there is hope for improvements in their lives. Being taught to operate a computer will develop their confidence as well as their abilities. Some may be inspired by their new knowledge and go on to become Internet entrepreneurs, providing jobs to the local community. Although this is unlikely in Nigeria’s current situation, it could happen it the future.
For Nigeria to become a better place, its citizens must be shown the possibilities of the world. The best way to do this is by giving them the skills to use a computer and access the Internet.
