New design academy berths in Lokoja


For many parents in Lokoja, the Kogi State capital, their desire is to profitably engage their wards during the holidays. However, each time they desire to do so, the thought of how best to engage them become an issue. This is because there aren’t much places to take the children to. That may no longer be a problem.
