The Chairman, Mobile Software Nigeria, Chris Uwaje, has been inducted into the 2022 New Internet IPv6 Hall of Fame.

The IPv6 Hall of Fame recognition was conveyed in a letter dated December 12 from IPv6 Forum and signed by the Founder/President, Latif Ladid.
   
Uwaje, popularly known as the Oracle of Nigeria’s ICT industry, according to the letter, was commended for taking leadership in the evangelism and promotion of IPv6 with his knowledge and reputation and “is therefore recognised as an IPv6 Evangelist.”
   
Indeed, the IPv6 Forum established in 2018, the New Internet IPv6 Hall of Fame to recognise and celebrate the experts and evangelists of IPv6, who have made extraordinary contributions to the design and large-scale deployment of IPv6 around the world. Uwaje is the convener of IPv6 Nigeria Council.

The forum explained that the 2022 IPv6 Hall of Famers are a very balanced mix of IPv6 Experts, IPv6 Evangelists, IPv6 Large-scale Deployers, IPv6 Trainers and IPv6 Ready Logo Programme experts.
  
Ladid said: “The IPv6 Forum is very blessed and proud to have attracted and won some of the finest and top IPv6 pioneers, experts and genuine volunteers around the world, quoting Vint Cerf, to upgrade the Internet from a “Research” Internet Protocol version 4 (IPv4) to a “Production” Internet Protocol version 6 (IPv6) to sustain the growth of the Internet to include everyone and connect any sensible device.”
    
Reacting to the development, Uwaje said: “I am very proud to have been nominated and selected among these finest IPv6 experts and evangelists with my contributions. With the population of Nigeria estimated to hit 409 million people in 2050, the adoption of IPv6 becomes fundamentally critical to the sustainable development of Nigeria and Africa.”  

The prime objective of the IPv6Forum and its members is to promote deployment and coordinated uptake of the new Internet Protocol version 6 (IPv6) with support from industry, education, research communities and government agencies enabling equitable access to technology and knowledge.
