School management software EduMESS has announced its commercial deployment to the Nigerian market.
The company says it plans to digitize 500 schools by 2023.
Co-founder Chike Okoli said in a statement:
“We plan to enhance learning in more than 500 schools across the country within the next 12 months, expanding to 36 federal states.
“With more than 60% of the African population between the ages of 3 and 25 and a growth rate of 2.37%, education has become an important part of our lives. It enhances learning as a whole, and EduMESS is well positioned to do so across Africa.”
He expressed confidence that EduMESS would have a significant impact on the country’s education sector.
“I am a strong believer in how much impact we can have on the learning experience in Africa. I am working hard to do it.”
He said the company wants to enhance its e-learning solution so that schools can continue to provide educational services in areas and periods of school closure.
Mr. Okori said: Schools are often closed during elections for fear of unrest. Our mission is to provide solutions to all educational problems and improve the education system,” said Okori.
The company added that since its inception, it has served 60 schools, 15,091 students, 72 administrators, 1,542 teachers and 2,905 parents.
