The Nigeria Internet Registration Association (NiRA) has held an enlightening discussion with the Nigerian Medical Association (NMA) and the Lagos Chamber of Commerce and Industry (LCCI) in an ongoing effort to promote the widespread adoption of the .ng domain.
The President of NIRA, Mr. Adesola Akinsanya disclosed this in a speech contained in the organisation’s May Newsletter.
According to him, the engagement with the two professional bodies is part of NIRA’s collective journey toward achieving digital excellence, which he believes is on the right track.
“We had enlightening discussions with the Nigerian Medical Association (NMA) and the Lagos Chamber of Commerce and Industry (LCCI). These engagements are crucial in exploring effective approaches for these esteemed associations to embrace the .ng domain, aligning with the national second-level domain policy mandated by the Federal government,” he said.
He noted that the discussions are centered around implementation strategies and emphasized the significant benefits of leveraging the .ng domain to enhance online presence and credibility. “These collaborations exemplify our role as custodians of this critical resource, working towards advancing a thriving internet ecosystem for all Nigerians,” he added.
Aligning with global trends, it is evident that embracing digitalization is the way forward. Developed economies have demonstrated the immense benefits of this transformation. It is strongly recommended that Nigerians support local hosting of websites as a means to reduce capital flight.
