    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.

    GMOs have huge potential to boost Nigeria’s economy – expert

    Prof. Muhammad Ishiyaku, the Executive Director, Institute for Agricultural Research, Zaria says Genetically Modified Organisms (GMOs) have huge potential to boost Nigeria’s economy.

    Ishiyaku said this at a “Science Hangout’’ in Calabar, organised by the Alliance for Science Nigeria (ASN).

    The News Agency of Nigeria reports that the theme of the hangout was, “Ending Poverty, Hunger and Malnutrition through Improved Technology.

    According to the professor, who also lectures at the Ahmadu Bello University Zaria, GMOs can withstand adverse weather conditions, diseases, and have an expanded shelf life and contains more nutritional benefits.

    “If we can cultivate 100 million hectares of the genetically modified Pod Borer Resistant (PBR) cowpea in Nigeria, we will make nothing less than N46 billion savings annually from the reduction of imported insecticides.

    “This is because GMOs increase production of crops, withstand adverse weather effects such as drought, diseases and pests while increasing quantity and quality in terms of nutritional benefits.

    “These are the challenges of crop production for which biotechnology can provide solution if the society embraces it,’’ he said.

    According to the professor, Nigerians need to trust their research institutes that have over the years carried out harmless researches for agricultural development to ensure food security in the country.

    Also speaking, Opuah Abeikwen, the Coordinator, ASN said Nigeria was the highest consumer of beans across the world.

    “However, due to its inability to meet up with demand locally, it spends more than N16 billion annually to import additional 500,000 metric tons of the produce,’’ Abeikwen said.

    Abeikwen said to overcome this challenge, agricultural biotechnology was introduced to help Nigeria bridge the gap of importation and produce more nutritious foods that were highly disease, pest and adverse weather resistant.

    “The cultivation of cowpea in the nation is a challenge because farmers have to spray their crops at least 10 times every planting season to fight maruca vitratar.

    “This is a killer insect capable of reducing yield by about 80 per cent.

    According to statistics, 29.4 million Nigerians are undernourished due to massive reduction in food production occasioned by the challenges of climate change.

    “ Pod Borer Resistant cowpea promises to address some of these setbacks in the nation’s food system and also reduce the massive use of chemicals in food production, thereby, fostering environmental sustainability,’’ he said.

    He advised Nigerians to go beyond selfish reasons and adopt results of important researches carried out by the nation’s agricultural research institutes.

    Abeikwen said that such researches that had the capacity of boosting healthy food production and ensuring food security should be encouraged.

    Mrs Rose Gidado of the Open Forum on Agricultural Biotechnology, Nigeria (OFAB), said in the early 60s there was food security because what was planted was harvested.

    She said that with the present effects of climate change, it was important to appropriate technology to mitigate food shortage.

    Gidado said that food security was quite critical if development must be sustained in the nation.

    The News Agency of Nigeria reports that PBR cowpea is a GMO, highly resistant to the maruca-pod-borer pest which attacks and reduces production of beans.
