  Adopt the .ng ccTLD name 

              NIRA moves to promote the .ng Country Code Top-Level Domain (ccTLD) Name to corporate organizations in the country    
    The Nigeria Internet Registration Association, the Nigerian body in-charge of the administration of Nigeria's Top-Level Domain Name, .ng, is to begin talks with corporate organsiations to ensure that they register their websites under the .ng domain. The President, NIRA Mr. Kalu Ndukwe, said the plan was to ensure that the country had a net identity that was consistent with what obtained elsewhere in the world. "Our belief in this is that as the leading private and public sector organisations they are seen by both Nigerians and foreigners are a reflection of the Nigerian taste and direction,"he said.   According to him, with the formation of NIRA, the time had come to ensure that issues that concerning Nigeria on the Internet were handled as they should. He said a National Website competition for the construction of the nira.org.ng website would also be held to promote internet growth in the country.   Ndukwe said part of the policy to promote the dot ng ccTLD would
 involve a modification of the current annual Webjurist competition that rates the websites of banks. NIRA said it was working with Phillips Consulting, which administers the award towards ensuring an expansion of the competition to include sites of firms from other sectors of the economy. Besides, he said only websites that were registered in the Nigerian domain name would be analysed. This means websites that end with .com, .org, or .net and others would not be eligible for rating.   It said NIRA had set up a transition arrangement that would precede the full take off of its activities in the country. He said, "The board has approved a transition operation to act as bridge between now and when NIRA take-full charge and control. This arrangement enables NIRA to meet administrative and technical demands."   Among the things the board had put in place under the transition operation is a temporary office manned by a full time Administrative Secretary.   He said this office
 would act as a physical point of contact for general correspondence, domain registration services and Membership services. The NIRA boss also said during the transition periods the subsisting policy of free domain registration would continue, but with a modification
