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 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 emphasised out that this year’s commemoration of the 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.

Recalling that in 2019, the United Nations (UN) estimated that over 22 million tonnes of small e-waste were produced worldwide, which accounts for some 40 per cent of the 57 million tonnes of all e-waste arising globally.

Besides, he said, the objective of ITREALMS E-Waste Dialogue is to examine the challenges and opportunities of end-of-life of electrical and electronics equipment that enables connectivity, especially on mobile computing devices; bringing together various manufacturing and recycling companies, so as to raise awareness and exchanging knowledge of this complex waste stream will provoke thought and support the small and medium industries and invariably propel growth.

ITREALMS e-Waste Dialogue also targets stakeholders involved in the management of business-to-business (B2B) infrastructure WEEE, especially from industry - including NCC and NESREA, ALTON, ATCON, CPN, NCS, EPRON members; international organisations, academic networks, subscriber groups, and telecom media etc.

We invite you and your esteemed organisation to collaborate with us in the 2022 ITREALMS e-Waste Dialogue as we look forward to your presentation on ‘Recycle it all for e-governance.’

the update has become necessary due to importance of tackling electronic waste as the country attained 20 years of Global System for Mobile Communications (GSM) which paved the way for influx of electronic devices and usage in Nigeria.

Nweke also said that the Waste of Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) emanates from the likes of mobile phones, computers, TV-sets, and fridges among other electronic devices have become a set of fastest growing waste streams across the globe.

The editor-in-chief of ITREALMS Media, organisers of the E-Waste Dialogue cited a recent UNEP report which showed that in 2015 alone, Nigeria had 56,000 tonnes of imported e-waste; in 2017, this figure increased to 288,000 tonnes; over four times higher than two years earlier.

He underscored the need for a massive and sustained campaign of Nigerians on e-waste and its likely effects when disposed wrongly.
