THE NiRA 2021 Executive Board Elections

At 11:00am, on the 29th April 2021, the Nigeria Internet Registration Association (NiRA) held its 13th Annual General Meeting (AGM) on NiRA’s ZOOM Platform.

The NiRA 13th AGM was primarily to receive the Annual Report and Audited Financial Statements for the year ended December 31, 2020, together with the report of the Auditor thereon and to receive and approve the Business Plan and Budget for the financial year from 1st January to  December 31. The 2021 AGM also provided an opportunity for NiRA Members to elect two Officers and three Members of the Executive Board of Directors (EBOD).

At the EBOD elections, the trio of Engr. Ifeanyi Frank Ogochukwu, Mr. Destiny Amana and Mr. Mayowa Ajiboye were elected as members of the NiRA Executive Board of Directors whilst Dr. Eugene Ohu and Mr. Chukwuemeka Fred Agbata Jnr. (CFA) were elected respectively as Financial Secretary and Treasurer Officers of the NiRA.

According to the Executive Secretary of NiRA, Mrs. Edith Udeagu who announced the election results on behalf of the Electoral Committee, a total of 117 members were eligible to vote but 97 performed their civic responsibilities as financial members of NiRA. The NiRA Electoral Committee consisted of NiRA past presidents, Mrs. Mary Uduma and Rev’d Sunday Folayan with Prof. Adenike Osofisan, a member of the NiRA Board of Trustees.

The President of NiRA also announced during AGM that two pioneer members of the Board of Trustees (BoT), Dr. Isaac Odeyemi and former president of the Nigeria Computer Society (NCS) Dr. Chris Nwannenna, had volunteered to step down from the NiRA BoT in line with the newly adopted NiRA constitution which provided for a total number of seven (7) Trustees. NiRA appreciates these noble gentlemen for their contributions at the NiRA Trustees level. We are still fortunate to have them contributing to the affairs of NiRA at the floor membership level.

We want to use this opportunity to thank the outgoing members of the Executive Board, Messrs. Nkem Nweke, Adebiyi Oladipo (Financial Secretary) and Engr Ikechukwu Nnamani (Treasurer), whose tenures ended at the Executive Board level. We appreciate their wealth of knowledge and experience which they brought to the board level and wish them the very best in their different pursuits in life.

As per the NiRA Constitution, the membership of the NiRA Executive Board consists of ten (10) NiRA financial members elected by the NiRA General Assembly in their individual rights.
