Chapters help further the Internet Society’s cause to achieve an open and free Internet – an Internet for everyone. We bring Internet Society members in local and regional groups that run programmes and activities dedicated, among other things, to informing policy and educating the public about Internet-related issues. Internet Society Nigeria Chapter is one of such platforms, chartered in 1999 and was rejuvenated in 2017. We encourage broad public debate on internet-related topics in which all stakeholders in Nigeria are proportionally represented. We believe in the Internet Society Mission and are committed to furthering the set goals and objectives in Nigeria.
The Internet Society supports the Nigeria Chapter to promote the development of the Internet as a global technical infrastructure, a resource to enrich people’s lives, and a force for good in society.
Our work aligns with our goals for the Internet to be open, globally-connected, secure, and trustworthy. We seek collaboration with all who share these goals.
Together, we focus on:
- Building and supporting the communities that make the Internet work;
- Advancing the development and application of Internet infrastructure, technologies, and open standards; and
- Advocating for policy that is consistent with our view of the Internet
