Speaking at the event held at Terra Kulture, Lagos Island, CEO, MultiChoice Nigeria, John Ugbe, stated that despite the COVID-19 pandemic, the students were able to quickly adapt to the transition from physical to virtual learning which is a testament to the world-class nature of the academy’s course.
