Late Engr. Chijioke Simeon Agu, founder Neptune Software
It was a tribute galore for the first president of the Institute of Software Practitioners of Nigeria (ISPON), Mr. Chijioke Simeon Agu, popular known as CSA at the ‘night of tributes’ hosted by the organization, Tuesday in Sheraton Hotels, Ikeja-Lagos.

The event for the man popularly described as Nigerian software lion, attracted who is who in the Information Technology (IT) industry, especially the software sub-sector.

Welcoming guest to the event, ISPON president, Chief Chris Uwaje, noted that though Engr Agu, the founder Neptune Software is late, which is a big loss to the IT community, and enjoined the industry to join his association to celebrate a man of vision who single handedly launched software Nigeria to where no other had been, who established innovative and strategic roadmap to the 21st century knowledge economy via software.

He went on to describe Engr. Agu as the Nigerian Software General, adding that he provided the inspirational blanket to wrap cold in the on-going ferocious battle for national survivability in the global software wilderness.

In his tribute, president, Nigeria Computer Society (NCS), Sir Demola Aladekomo, who was represented by the Executive Secretary, Mr. Chinedu Onuoha said late Agu pioneered lots of things and is known for challenging staff to write any software needed which does not exist in order to meet a demand.

Vice President, ISPON, Mr. Pius Okigbo Jnr called for the renaming of the ISPON National Software Competition after late Mr. Agu, due to his immense contribution to the software industry in the country.

Chief Tony Ayodele of Polaris Software said he pushed the local software to a very high stand, which is very stressful because of lack of encouragement, especially by the government. He also called for the sustainability of late Agu’s crusade on local software.

For the Protocol officer to the Osun Govenor, Mr. Afolabi Sanusi, late Engr. Agu is a goal getter and has never regretted working for him until he joined the political scene and further prayed for his soul to rest in peace.

The daughter, Mrs. Nnenna Imokuede, described late father as a family man, adding that the tributes tonight has made the family, especially the children to understand their father better than ever. She expressed appreciation to ISPON for honouring their late father with this ‘Night of Tributes’.
