In an effort to lessen the impact in disrupted curricular activities due to the nationwide school closure because of COVID-19, leading indigenous broadcasting brand, Wazobia media, is partnering with the Lagos State’s Ministry of Education to provide remote learning services for students.
The partnership is geared towards ensuring that students are better prepared for their upcoming examinations, especially those in the Senior Secondary School preparing for the West African Examination Council (WAEC) and National Examination Council (NECO) exams.
Speaking on the deal, Co-Founder and CEO of Wazobia, Tatiana Moussalli Nouri said the educational broadcast by the media brand was driven by the commitment of the organization to add value through investments that are incalculable in educating students and members of the society.
“The daily broadcast, which commenced on the 30th of March 2020 covered various subjects such as Mathematics, English Language, Chemistry, Physics, Financial Accounting, Biology, Economics, Yoruba and Literature in English has redefined learning for students especially during a global pandemic as this ingenious engagement has afforded millions of students across Nigeria, the opportunity to excel at their forthcoming examinations.” Tatiana said.
She also encouraged parents and students to seize the unique opportunity for interactive learning on the various Wazobia Platforms from the comfort of their homes, as it also provides them a unique opportunity to interact with tutors via call-in or WhatsApp Messaging during classes.
On her part, Lagos State Commissioner for Education, Folashade Adefisayo thanked the media organization for its role in aligning with the State government in providing an ingenious learning platform for students during the global pandemic.
She further stated that, due to the lack of accessibility to online learning platforms by most students within the public school sector, it became imperative to explore other communication channels with large followings and deeply rooted connections across various communities within the state.
The partnership between Wazobia Media and the Lagos State Ministry of Education is one that gives parents and students the unique opportunity to experience free seamless daily learning by top accredited tutors on dedicated programs on Wazobia Max TV channel UHF 57 from 2pm till 4pm and on Wazobia FM from 12pm till 2pm daily, Mondays to Fridays, totaling 4 hours of learning material daily.
The Program has been running since Monday March 30th and will continue throughout the school closure period.
