A 12 year old student, Tomisin Jasmin Ogunnubi of Vivian Fowler Memorial College for Girls Oregun, Lagos, under the tutelage of an ICT partnership between Vivian Fowler Memorial College for Girls School and New Horizons Computer Learning Centre has developed an android mobile tracking application tagged “My Locator.”
The app helps a user to know his geographic location, view it on the map and get appropriately directed. One of the other useful attributes of the app is that it is integrated with an alert button which when pressed in a distressed situation, calls the Lagos State emergency service number (767), and thereby gets the chance of being rescued from such threatening emergencies or conditions.
The app is already uploaded online and readily available for free download in Google Store. The performance of the likes of Tomisin has confirmed that Nigeria is blessed with intelligence and focused youths who in future, will emerge as Nigeria’s industry captains that will become tomorrow’s entrepreneurial giants like Bill Gates, Mack Zuckerberg, etc.
