>> *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
>> the by-lawyers to review the guidelines of NCUC, among others. In addition,
