Okey enjoys writing—creative writing, research and analytical, or just for fun. Writing is his best friend and ally at work, at play, and for reflection. He has a distinctive flowing style. Okey was born in Onitsha, Nigeria in March 1981. He is also a lawyer, a teacher and an entrepreneur. He loves to capture beautiful moments of joy and wonder through poetry and travel photography. Cascades is an attempt to capture some of his flowing feelings expressed in writing. The collection of 20 poems is published in commemoration of 20 years since he started writing poetry. Cascades embraces a rainbow of emotions like joy, love, hope, beauty, wonder, faith and soul searching. It covers two decades of expressing emotions in writing from his university days in Enugu, Nigeria, through his work travels to many parts of Africa, Europe and America, to his current abode in Abuja, Nigeria. It is divided into four parts and is dedicated to Spring, a time of rebirth and renewal. Free PDF copy available online!
In our brave new world of ultra-high-speed, seamless interconnectivity of bandwidth, ideas, peoples, finance, resources, goods and services, nearly anything is possible in cyberspace. Processes of government and governance are not spared in the global centripetal move towards digitization and the Internet of Things. Recent events in the Nigerian public space irrefutably point to the fact that the cyber-enabled surge in citizen consciousness and explosion of virtual spaces for engagement inspire and incite needed change by making increasing demands on transparency, accountability, responsiveness, efficiency and effectiveness. Governments the world over are adapting by creating structured and digitized channels for engaging with citizens, state and non-state entities in a participatory manner. This book is divided into two parts. Part I focuses on the future of e-Governance in Nigeria. It maps likely future scenarios of social change in the next 15-30 years (2033-2048) indicating the factors that combine to drive social change and what needs to be done now to prepare for the future. Part II focuses on the security of cyberspace and vulnerability of the systems that undergird e-Governance. Arguing that cyber governance, cybersecurity and data protection will become indispensable in the future, it shines a light on the endemic nature of cyber vulnerability and explores the meeting point of cybersecurity and data protection. It further presents a scorecard on cyber vulnerability and proffers policy options and recommendations to stakeholders including the citizen sector, the private sector, the public sector, national planners, policymakers and practitioners.
