> *Remmy Nweke*
> Dear Colleagues,
> At the novel convention of the Internet Governance Forum (IGF) at the
> second phase of the World Summit on the Information Society in Tunisia
> 2005, I was privileged to be a delegate and ever since then, my concept of
> MultiStakeholderism was ignited and has remained a motivating factor in
> most of my industry contributions across the Internet ecosystem where I
> find myself relevant to serve.
> As evident, this belief led to our first setting up an entity called
> DigitalSENSE Africa Media, which today is an At-Large Structure (ALS) to
> serve as a vehicle to drive home what multistakeholderism stands for,
> comprising inclusiveness across growing access to the Internet, openness,
> privacy, security, diversity and human elements among others.
> Hitherto, at DigitalSENSE Africa Media, where I lead a team of
> Strategists, we have consistently focused on developing initiatives that
> could engender and improve understanding of key issues of importance to our
> immediate community, which include but not limited to youth, students,
> women and community-based association to convey Internet efficacy via
> enlightenment on how best to increase usability positively, especially
> among the youths, who are furiously targeted as part of efforts at
> 'catching them young' and engendering knowledge via our DigitalSENSE Forum
> on Internet Governance for Development (IG4D) since 2009 and Nigeria IPv6
> Roundtable from 2011, which are annual events organized and hosted by my
> team and structured to serve multi-stakeholder needs.
> At the sub-regional level, I led a team that successfully organized and
> midwifed the first-ever West African Internet Governance Forum (WAIGF)
> hosted by Nigeria in Lagos in 2011.
> On the continent, I recognize the needs which may not be too different
> from scenario in my home country, Nigeria, where several issues are
> increasingly seen as problematic, moreso the issue of access and
> affordability, which will form my agenda at MAG, hence, I have a pretty
> idea what the challenges are from this part of the world from the African
> premise and having practiced in the Information and Communication
> Technology (ICT) sector in the past 19 years and adorned with several
> awards on Information Society via UNECA to attest these efforts.
> Also in Nigeria, DigitalSENSE Africa effort at building
> multistakeholderism gave rise to nurturing of what is today known as
> Nigeria Internet Governance Forum (NIGF) of which I am equally serving as a
> member of the NIGF Local Multistakeholder Advisory Group (LMAG), just as I
> served as a member of the Civil Society Selection Group for the just
> concluded WSIS+10 Stakeholder Selection Committee for the United Nations
> President of the General Assembly, among others.
> I holds a Master of Arts degree from the University of Malta on
> Contemporary Diplomacy, aside having a Higher National Diploma (HND) in
> Mass Communication (Journalism) as well as Ordinary National Diploma from
> the Institute of Journalism & Management, Enugu, Enugu State-Nigeria, among
> other certification in Computer Studies and Online Journalism and
> Management from the German International Institute for Journalism (IIJ)
> Berlin. I am the author of "A Decade of ICT Reportage ... The Award-winning
> series in addition to having Diploma from Diplo Foundation since 2005 on
> Internet Governance Capacity Building, and completed a certification course
> on Introduction to Environmental Law and Policy by The University of North
> Carolina at Chapel Hill, to name but a few.
> Lately, I served as an elected Executive board member, Nigeria Internet
> Registration Association (NIRA), the managers of .NG country code Top Level
> Domain and extended by services to several committees including
> Communications and Publicity, Accreditation, Finance and Establishment, as
> well as a member of the African Civil Society on the Information Society

> chairman, International Relations of NIG; pioneer Secretary, ICT Media
> Initiative; BARK Foundation – a knowledge-base advocacy group; Internet
> Governance Caucus (IGC), to name a few.
> I am an active individual member of ICANN's Generic Name Supporting
> Organisations (GNSO) like Non-Commercial Users Stakeholder Group (NCSG) and
> Non-Commercial Users Constituency (NCUC) respectively and has been in
> forefront of all-inclusive diversity advocacy and recently served as one of
