It was almost a month agonand we did not receive any comment from the candidates or the members but i will take your note for future elections, we do honestly organize this one the best way we could and we will learn for sure from this experience.

Kind regards,

Hi Analia and friends.

I was just wondering why some nominees have a brief on their statement of interest while one has almost all the content of application shared on this forum.

I was thinking the briefs should have a limited wordings to give everyone a level playing ground on 'why they want to serve'. Or is someone already an insider before the match?

As much I appreciate the effort of your team including DD to make this transition work, I think we should have coordinated better than what I am seeing which is bereft of a level playing grounds.

My two cents.

1. Akinremi Peter Taiwo 

As we all know that there is need for new co-coordinator to serve for 2016 - 2018. I am nominating myself and willing to serve as Co-coordinator of IGC for this period.

 I have more than the required skills and expertise to function very well in this capacity. Working as an IT consultant has equipped me to understand the rudiments of IT technologies (software, hardware and humanware).

Have been privileged to facilitate international online discussions (FIN4AGRIC); served as social media coordinator of remote IGF events in Calabar, Nigeria; joined (NCSG) and contributes at several webinars and a strong advocate from remote participation.

Have taken several courses including but not limited to IT, education, management, climate change, policy and implementation which has widened my knowledge to function (DiploFoundation, Worldbank Institute, YaliNetwork etc).

I possess listening hear, patience, ability to resolve conflicts, task prioritization, time management, and sense of judgment.

In order to be successful in any position and achieve results, there's need for strong relationship. As a coordinator for IGC for 2016 - 2018, I will strive to build strong relationship among IGC Members that will ensure strong discussion and early consensus while ensuring everyone voice and needs is given attention.

I seek your support all.

Best regards.
