Blocked funds stall Nigerian e-Library project

An E-library project linking all the tertiary and educational institutions in the country to facilitate knowledge sharing and research activities for enhanced quality of education in Nigeria has failed to get off the ground.

The project had been developed by the Nigerian Educational Research and Development Council on the promise of N40m ($260,000)  in the National Assembly’s 2009 budget, but the funds were never approved by the Executive.
