Craze for foreign products, hinders .ng growth - Uduma


Nigerians should be patriotic enough to patronize whatever is Nigerian to spur the economy and even create more jobs, especially in the Domain Name System (DNS) industry, according to the immediate president of the Nigeria Internet Registration Association (NIRA), Mrs. Mary Uduma, reports ITRealms.

Mrs. Uduma made this call in Lagos at NIRA house while responding to media inquiries on the major challenge of the registry in the last decade as it marks 10 years, and said that the crave for foreign products against and above home grown alternatives has hinder the growth of .ng country code Top Level Domain (ccTLD).

Uduma who is now the Executive Secretary, Late Ndukwe Kalu Foundation, which was set up by NIRA also said that this crave has not helped the industry and a nation like Nigeria with over 180 million population, to still be recording .ng registration below a million.

She further urged Nigerians to embrace .ng to assist in boosting the economy and creating more jobs for the youth and cutting down on capital flight.
