Ogunsemo wins NiTA’s Best School Management Software Developer
Lead Consultant, Krystal Digital Solutions Limited, a firm that specialises in development, research, deployment and creation of customised and service-oriented solutions, particularly for schools, Temitope Ogunsemo, has emerged Nigeria Technology Awards (NiTA)’s Best School Management Software Developer for 2015.
Ogunsemo, who expressed joy over the award said the achievement was a fruit of his organisation’s determination to ensure that the country leverages on Information and Communications Technology (ICT) to provide solutions to the deplorable state of education in the country.
Speaking at the 2015 NiTA Night in Lagos, Ogunsemo disclosed that his organisation has been providing robust ICT solutions to about 40 per cent of Federal Government colleges and other institutions across the federation.
“I don’t know the criteria the organiser may have used, but I think we have won this award because of the unique way we have been providing ICT solutions to schools in Nigeria. If you look at the Federal Government colleges for instance, we host most of their schools. In fact, we host over 40 per cent of the schools,” the award winner stated.
Ogunsemo, whose organisation provides, complete solutions, which specifically allow teachers, students, parents and school management and other corporate organisations to effectively communicate and direct information flow said there was urgent need for Nigeria to integrate technology into school curriculums.
“We have recently partnered with Microsoft and we are building learning hub, we are already in about 10 schools where we have a running academy in partnership with Microsoft and we are seriously pushing to do far more. We have been providing solutions and now we also want to be known for building academies.”
Speaking on the need for the new administration to overhaul the education sector in Nigeria through ICT, Ogunsemo stressed that since “this government is a listening government; we need to remove some people who are not really necessary in some positions so that we can move ahead”.
