Lagos Business School (LBS) member of faculty, Dr Eugene Ohu, has been elected a Director of the Executive Board of the Nigeria Internet Registration Association (NIRA). NIRA is the registry and manager for .ng Internet Domain Names. The election took place during the 9th Annual General Meeting of NIRA on Friday, April 28, 2017.
NIRA is a self-regulatory body that manages the country code Top Level Domain (ccTLD) .ng name space, accredits registrars and maintains a database of names registered in the .ng name space. NIRA’s formation in 2005 was coordinated on behalf of the Federal Government of Nigeria by the National Information Technology Development Agency (NITDA).
Dr Ohu brings to the NIRA board, a wealth of experience in the technology space, both local and international. He has been a member of NIRA from its inception. He was a part of the technical team that berthed the management of the .ng ccTLD in Nigeria, and his company Netorb Media Ltd was one of the pioneer registrars of the .ng domain name. Dr Ohu, who sits on NIRA’s board with nine other stakeholders within Nigeria’s Internet community, has always brought these experiences to bear in his class engagements at LBS with executives and MBA students.
