ITREALMS:
The Deputy Editor-in-chief of the Nigerian CommunicationsWeek, Mr. Chike Onwuegbuchi has emerged the new chairman of the Nigeria Information Technology Reporters Association (NITRA), reports ITREALMS.

He takes over from Mr. Emma Okonji, whom he has the priviledge of deputizing in the last three years.

Onwuegbuchi was elected alongside Chidiebere Nwankwo as Secretary, Ms Bukola Olanrewaju as Assistant Secretary, Chioma Ezike as Treasurer and Justus Adejumoh joining the executive committee of NITRA as the Financial Secretary.

Announcing the outcome of the e-Voting which took place on Friday riding on DigitVote, a platform developed by DigitalSENSE Africa Media team, chairman of the 2020 NITRA Election Committee, Mr. Aaron Ukodie disclosed that Onwuegbuchi scored 92.6 per cent of the total votes casted during the exercise to emerge.

Ukodie commended members for orderly conduct of the exercise both at the NIRA House venue and remote participants and urged other industry group association to emulate NITRA by introducing the electronic voting, especially the DigitVote developed by DigitalSENSE Africa Media.

According to Ukodie, Nigeria has hope only if “we can imbibe the culture of transparency as evident in evoting platform by DigitVote.”

Also speaking, Mr. Okonji applauded the exercise as transparent and enjoined the new exco to take the activities and achievements of NITRA under his administration to the next level.

He pointed out that after being the founding interim chairman which later got the mandate for a term of three years, he know the dynamic of leadership and is glad that his former vice chairman, Onwuegbuchi emerged the new chair.

He congratulated the Onwuegbuchi-led executive committee and promised to always make himself available to ensure good counsel is offered to new exco.

In his acceptance speech after being sworn-in by Mr. Peter Alero Jones, the new chairman, Onwuegbuchi promised to take the welfare of members seriously, whilst soliciting for support among bonafide members to ensure their expectations are met.

“I will continue some of the achievements recorded and improve on others such as our Group life policy initiative, collapsing of our quarterly forum into yearly conference with expanded participation by companies among others,” he said, assuring on accountability and prudent management of resources.

Meanwhile the 2020 NITRA Election Committee led by Ukodie and comprised Remmy Nweke as Secretary, Patrick Aigbekan as Assistant Secretary and Louisa Olaniyi as Treasurer, was applauded for the transparent and innovative exercise in addition to gaining the mandate to organize a bye election for the office of the Vice Chairman and Internal Auditor within the next two weeks.
