The NYIGF wishes to thank all of those who have contributed to a successful 2019 NYIGF which was held at Center of Information Technology and Systems – CITS, University of Lagos, Akoka, Lagos State on 23 January 2019, and featured the formal launch of the NYIGF website.
The event themed, “Internet Governance Policy and Fundamentals” was aimed at launching a community of Nigerian young people (below 35 years) who are passionate about Internet technology and contributing to the development of a healthy Internet ecosystem in Nigeria. With the rapid development of the global Internet, emergence of new technologies (Internet of things, Artificial Intelligence etc) and the crucial role the network plays in our daily lives, there is a growing need to address the role of the Nigerian young population in determining and creating the policies that will govern the Internet in Nigeria.

We look forward to developing our amazing community of Nigerian young people in Internet governance.
