The National Association of Proprietors of Private Schools (NAPPS) has been in existence for more than two decades and its primary focus is to enhance qualitative education in Nigerian schools for the benefit of the Nigeria students, especially the younger population. This mission aligns with MTN Nigeria’s commitment to improving the standard of education in the country through the introduction of tailored innovations for Nigerian students.

The company recently launched MTN mPulse – an education-focused proposition targeted at tweens and teens. With certified preparation materials and past questions for Common Entrance, JSCE, WAEC, JAMB and Post UTME, a wide array of skill development tutorial videos as well as Parental control to keep children safe on the internet, mPulse is an innovation for students who are already shining and those aspiring to maximise their capabilities.
Speaking at the 25,000 people march, Senior Manager, Youth Segment, MTN Nigeria, Omotayo George said, “At MTN, we are passionate about building a solid foundation and future for the students of this great country. We are always seeking veritable opportunities to enhance the quality of education in the country. Through the launch of mPulse, we intend to intensify our contribution to education development, and we charge teachers, parents and proprietors to encourage their wards and students to visit this platform.”
She further reiterated that “Supporting those that make it possible for students to learn in the right environment such as NAPPS is part of our effort to ensure that students get the best possible education.”
The event also saw the exchange of ideas among stakeholders, who discussed the way forward for the education sector and how to further improve the interaction between schools, teachers and students.
