A member of the National Youth Service Corps (NYSC), Richardson Ojeka, serving in the Federal Capital Territory (FCT), yesterday, donated 20 laptops to students of the Junior Secondary School, Alugu-Lungu, Gwarinpa II, Abuja.

A project tagged ‘Students’ Innovation Hub’ was also launched to help equip the students with computer skills.
