    ISOC-NG seeks contributions to robust, secure internet use policy in Nigeria

    The Internet Society Nigeria (ISOC- has called on internet users and stakeholders to contribute to policy formulation to foster robust and secure internet use in Nigeria and globally.

    Mr Caleb Ogundele, President of Internet Society (Nigeria Chapter) made the call at the opening of the third Nigerian School on Internet Governance (NSIG) Forum on Wednesday in Abuja.

    The News Agency of Nigeria reports that the NSIG Forum is a pre-event to the Nigeria Internet Governance Forum (NIGF) scheduled to hold in Lagos from Sept. 12 to Sept.15. According to him, the internet governance spectrum, which consists of the national, regional, continental and global spectrums, aims to ensure access for all stakeholders in the internet ecosystem.

    He, therefore, charged members of the internet ecosystem, including individuals, corporate organisations, civil society organisations, the media and government, to ensure proper understanding of their importance in the internet governance space.

    “Everyone of us is important in the multi-stakeholder approaches regarding internet governance processes.

    “That is why whenever NCC is coming up with a framework or policy, they usually call for public comments where an individual, the academia, Civil Society, etc can make useful contributions.

    “You can then say that internet belongs to no one.

    “This is, therefore, to remind us of how important you are in making internet for everyone to be a good place and a safer environment for all,” Ogundele said.

    Mr Yaovi Atohun, of International Cooperation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN), harped on the importance of Internationalised Domain Name (IDN) and how it is managed by ICANN.

    Dr Wale Adedokun, an academic from Ahmadu Bello University, Zaria and a discussant at the event, underscored the need for proper understanding of the evolution of the internet and components of internet governance.

    According to him, the components include Critical Internet Resources, Openness, Diversity and Inclusion and Access, among others.

    “As far as internet governance is concerned, access is key; obtaining information without any form discrimination.

    “Nobody says because you are black, you can’t get information; the access should be done with as much ease as possible.

    “The internet governance also emphasises diversity and inclusion; openness has to do with respect for one another which must be within a defined moral acceptable standard of expression.

    “One very important thing to be concerned with regarding internet governance is cyber security,  security of your devices and contents,” Adedokun said.

    Mrs Chiderah Ikeokonkwo, Head of Research, Development and Innovation, Nigeria Data Protection Bureau (NDPB), said the bureau was established to secure and safeguard Nigerians from vulnerability to cyber attacks.

    According to her, the Bureau is poised to protect Nigerians from cyber fraud, cyber bullies, data manipulations and intrusions into private family and social affairs, among others.

    “The Bureau is hoping that, before the end of the current administration, the National Data Protection Right (NDPR) Act 2022 amendment bill will be passed by the National Assembly.

    “That will repeal the present NDPR to further institutionalise data protection in Nigeria,” Ikeokonkwo said.

    NAN reports that the Forum, which will end on Sept. 13, is to deepen the role of Internet Governance in Nigeria.

    ICT: NCC begins awareness creation on safety, security for girls

    The Nigerian Communications Commission (NCC) has begun  awareness creation that would promote safety and security amongst girls in the Information and Communication Technology (ICT) in the country.

    The commission held an awareness event at the Government Science Technical College (GSTC), Area 3, Garki, on Thursday in Abuja, to commemorate the Girls in ICT Day.

    The News Agency of Nigeria reports that Girls in ICT is an initiative of the International Telecommunications Union (ITU), the global body responsible for setting telecommunications standard.

    The yearly event is with the theme: “Access and Safety”

    Mrs Tokunbo Oyeleye, the Deputy Director, New Media and Information Security Department,  NCC, said that the event aimed to encourage girls to pursue careers in Science, Techology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM).

    Oyeleye said that this year’s theme was meant to create discussions on access and safety barriers girls faced when they pursued STEM studies and careers.

    She, however, said that the main focus for this year are: equal access, accessibility, gender stereotypes and workplace environment and safety online.

    “There is a need to promote opportunities for girls in STEM and educate them on the benefits they can gain from it.

    “There is a need to make classes and materials in STEM more inclusive and easily understandable for people with disabilities, especially women.

    “These stereotypes increase a sense to girls that they are not capable of pursuing ICT careers and are not supposed to be in it.

    “To ensure girls are safe online, they need to be educated and empowered with the appropriate knowledge and tools to be used online,” she said.

    Also speaking, Mr Ebuka Nkoro, an Early Career Fellowship facilitator of Internet Society (ISOC) and partner to the Commission on Child Online Protection, said the girls should beware of their digital footprints.

    Nkoro advised the students to use some tips for online safety, which were the use of very strong passwords, eight to 10 digits password, use of password managers and installation of good antivirus accordingly.

    He said that girls should avoid online bullies, phishing and online gaming attacks and online swindlers.

    “Do not share or post unnecessary things, especially nude pictures of yourself.

    “These are social engineering attacks generated by a hacker to gain access to your personal data,” he said.

    Mrs Nusirat Atoyebi, Matron, ICT Club, GSTC, called for a better relationship between NCC and the school adding that it needed more equipment to empower the girls.

    Atoyebi said that this was an eye-opener to greater opportunities in the ICT sector and the students were ready to learn, unlearn and relearn at all costs.

    She thanks the NCC for the gesture and ecpressed the hope for supply of more computers to the school.

    She said that as one of the technical trades in the school was computer craft the infrastructure was not enough.

    “As government school the population is high and the infrastructure is not enough, we will be happy if NCC will help us with computers as one of the technical trades is computer craft.

    “We have students that have been thought computer programming, computer electronics, computer repairs as their core subjects; so to be able to do more, we need more equipment,” she said.

    Ms Emmanuella Freshman, a student of the GSTC, said the programme had imparted knowledge into her such that it improved her thinking and learning on online bullying.

    Freshman said that she had an online Application called “Things Vibe”, which deals with teenagers that have no time to express themselves.

    “I made this app in such a way that teenagers can express themselves.

    “There is entertainment, learning, talent, quotes and mentors that can encourage and motivate you, using the App.

    “My ICT teachers have been helpful in the success of this project,” she said.

    Operators Group seeks internet connection for 100m Nigerians

    The Nigerian Network Operators Group (ngNOG) on Tuesday said there was need to connect the next 100 million Nigerians to affordable internet.

    The Co-founder of ngNOG, Mr Sunday Folayan, made this known at the 13th Network Technology Conference and Workshop organised by ngNOG in Lagos.

    ngNOG is a forum dedicated to promoting the exchange of technical information and the cooperation and coordination among network service providers.

    It has to do with discussion and policy implementations on issues affecting the internet community, and to maintain the stability of the Internet within the Nigerian region.

    Folayan said that there was need to connect the next 100 million Nigerians because of the benefits of the internet.

    He said that connecting the next 100 million could be made easier by recognising the importance of Information Communication Technology (ICT) in the nation’s socioeconomic development.

    According to him, there is need to make ICT the centerpiece of national development through steady pursuit of policies and programmes that will re-position Nigeria as a strong player in the emerging global digital economy.

    “Information technology will require concerted efforts in legislation and policies, education and capacity building, open governance and enhanced accountability.

    “We need to recognise information technology as a matter of national priority and make it the bedrock of national development, by putting in policies that will use ICT to drive socioeconomic development.

    “Enactment of appropriate legislations to give effect to the various ICT thrusts of the government, such as mandatory continuing education, the National Software Strategic Policy, National Broadband Policy or plan and Financial Technology Services, among others,” he said.

    Folayan said that there was the need to foster technological innovation and competitiveness, so as to get very good dividends from the technological forays.

    He said that government should pay attention to locally developed solutions to free the country from digital slavery and technological isolation.

    According to him, government should give prominence to the National Local Content Act, 2010.

    The co-founder said that a very strong reward system should be instituted to encourage technological innovation at all levels and across all areas.

    He said that government should develop the ICT industry by a method of strong engagement of the industry players at all levels.

    Folayan said that in order to connect the next 100 million Nigerians, there was the need to create at least 12 IT or Knowledge Innovation Parks in different parts of the country.

    He said that at least, two Software Engineering Institutes (SEI) should be established, in line with the spirit of the Local Content Development Act.

    “The march to connect the next 100 million and indeed all Nigerians requires continuous cultivation and empowerment of the community, and a task for all to do.

    “I humbly request our development partners to keep the faith. Nigeria is a great place to cast your nets and of course, the returns are enormous.

    “Our main task, is to build a community of people who can work together, to push the envelope to take the nation forward,” Folayan said.

    Mr Adewale Ajao, the President of Internet Society (ISOC) Nigeria Chapter, said that connecting the next 100 million Nigerians required just some simple decisions by government and network operators.

    Ajao said that the cost of accessing the internet should be affordable, so as to connect more Nigerians.

    He said that data bundle was costly because a lot of contents came from outside the country, hence, the need to domesticate contents.
