Digital Rights are Human Rights
Meet the Team
An avid volunteer from age 8, often in a teaching and mentorship capacity, Nnenna is very passionate about the holistic development and wellbeing of youth especially in Nigeria and Africa as a whole. She has mentored groups of youth in technology and entrepreneurship with Ajegunle.org, a PIN project; spearheaded training programmes dedicated to underprivileged youth; led child sexual abuse prevention training for adults and developed afterschool programs. More recently she co-pioneered Teen Talk in Calabar, Nigeria - an interactive forum for teenagers by teenagers that provides a safe space and a platform where young ones can freely and openly express ideas and contribute meaningfully regarding issues of key concern to them.
Nnenna is a huge sports enthusiast who adores her family, loves travel, reading and playing her musical instruments.
Adeboye’s most important current task is to see the Digital Rights and Freedom Bill become Law in the Nigerian 8th National Assembly (2015-2019). To this end, he is engaging in spirited advocacy effort, focusing on a variety of stakeholders to mobilize support and solidarity for the Bill, which is currently at the Nigerian House of Representatives.
Adeboye has demonstrable skills and expertise in stakeholder engagements. His work is helping him to build very strong multi-stakeholder relations skills as well as Project Management skills. His experience from the private sector has greatly helped his foray into the civil society space as can be seen in his ability to undertake result-oriented tasks, working towards specific goals with specific budgets and defined timelines.
In the short term, Adeboye wants to continue to be at the forefront of civic engagement through policy advocacy work. He wants to continue to play a role in advocating rights-respecting ICT policy in Africa, emphasizing the need to align ICT Policy with the actual developmental needs of African countries in recognition of the role ICTs can play to achieve those development objectives. Adeboye believes the civic space needs committed and consistent players to engage government at different layers to reconcile them with the needs and yearnings of the people. However, long-term, Adeboye hopes to be involved in national politics with interest in the legislative arm of government, where he hopes to be involved directly in the policy/law-making process.
