Further, he noted that IXPN, a not-for-profit and membership-based organisation that provides a platform for networks to interconnect directly within Nigeria, ensures that local Internet traffic remains local, rather than having to transcend the boundaries of different countries before reaching its recipients within the same locality.

Meanwhile, the Director-General of the National Environmental Standards and Regulations Enforcement Agency (NESREA), Aliyu Jauro, had confirmed that he will deliver the keynote address at the 2022 ITREALMS E-Waste Dialogue.

ITREALMS Media inc, he said, is holding the event in continuation of the commemoration of International E-waste Day (IeWD) 2022, under its flagship ITREALMS e-Waste Dialogue.

Nweke, who also is the editor-in-chief, ITREALMS Media group, noted, Nigeria is principally hampered by the Waste of Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) with an estimated 1.1 million tonnes of e-waste annually arising from both local and imported Electrical and Electronic Equipment (EEE) under the guess of second hand or fairly used.

He stated that this year’s commemoration of International E-Waste Day focuses on small, end-of-life electrical and electronic appliances which present a significant challenge with items such as cell phones, electric toothbrushes, toasters, and cameras often discarded incorrectly.
