NYIF: Technical issues truncated training the second day, FMYSD calls for patience, considers zoom.

Oluwakemi Ann-Melody Areola, the Special Assistance to the Ministry on ICT and Corporate Relations in the statement through a tweet on her official Twitter handle emphasised that there are 3 batches (A,B and C) already notified for the training on the e-learning platform.

Mrs Areola added that any of the selected candidates for the “First Batches” of the training who has not gotten the login details is not included in the Batch A, B and C, and should patiently wait for their turns as further directives would be communicated to them through their e-mail addresses.

The batching of the training became necessary to ensure that the “Class limit” on the e-learning portal would not be exceeded which would in turn trigger collapse of the portal or continued inefficiency of the platform. Hence, it is very important to remain patient and hopeful for a favourable outcome.
