The National Information Technology Development Agency (NITDA) has expressed readiness to enforce the adoption of Nigeria’s domain name, .ng, especially among ministries departments and agencies (MDAs).
NITDA recalled that in line with the digital economy policy, the Federal Executive Council (FEC) approved the National Second Level Domain Policy on February 16, 2022, making it mandatory for all government-owned websites and official email correspondence of all government personnel to comply.
The Agency said that full implementation, which is under its purview, will start, firstly by inaugurating an enforcement committee on compliance.
Following the approval of the policy, NITDA also inaugurated a 14-man enforcement committee to monitor its implementation.
Report says that compliance with the directive was still low as businesses and MDAs ignored Nigeria’ s.ng while opting for .com, .net, .org among others.
