ROLE MODEL OF THE WEEK – DOTUN ADEGBESAN, CHARTERED ACCOUNTANT BASED IN IRELAND

Dotun Donald Adegbesan B.sc, M.sc, ACMA, CGMA

A chartered accountant who primarily started career as an Economist and progressively attained academic/professional qualification in strategic management.

Professional career as Chartered Accountant and Management Strategist with over 30 years’ working experience in diverse private, non-government organisation (NGO) and government sectors in Ireland  and Africa. I made a conscious choice to leave private sector and move to public sector in the last 12 years to date.

My personal professional networks have been important in sustaining the value and marketability of my experience and qualifications. Added value has come through collaboration and knowledge sharing in corporate/organisational partnering arrangements and professional forums on best practice and innovation.

Direct, approachable and pragmatic, my focus is always on delivering changes that matter for an entity through adoption of best in class processes, modern methodologies and continuous improvement culture.

Though born in Nigeria but made in Ireland, my 19 years residency in Ireland brought me closer to people of multi-cultural diaspora communities. “Giving-back” to the community that made me is my main goal and driver of my active support for local/international events, and cross-sector provide me with a good basis for continued professional contribution.

My specific areas of relevant expertise include innovation in governance, strategic management, risk and compliance, advisory roles at board, executive and business levels, investment appraisal, and risk- based planning.

Over the last 18 years Mr Adegbesan has led some community integration projects and initiatives in Ireland and Africa. I believe in power of collaboration of mind and positive outcomes associated with it. This requires change in mind-set and behaviours to embed into the thinking and actions of people in every organisation to serve the stakeholders right, professionally and ethically.#

ENROLMENT OF ALL NIGERIANS INTO NIGERIAN IDENTITY DATABASE KICKS OFF IN EUROPE

Enrolment of All Nigerians in Europe into the National Identity
Database (NIDB) kicks on in Germany, Italy, Austria and Netherlands with Biosec

Biosec Solutions the first Nigerian (indigenous) biometric management company with EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) compliant certified“ in collaboration with Nigerians in Diaspora Organization Europe (NIDOE), the European arm of the Nigerian Diaspora Organization Worldwide (NIDOWW), and Nigerian organizations and stakeholders in Diaspora will commence mobilization, capturing and enrolment of all Nigerians into the National Identity Database starting from Germany on the 16/08/2019, Italy 19/08/2019, Austria = 21/08/2019 and other countries including Netherlands, Spain, Sweden and Ukraine will follow.

Biosec Solutions is NIMC’s indigenous approved vendor to facilitate Diaspora data capture. According to Hon. Gbandi, the enrolment is to ensure that all Diaspora Nigerians irrespective of associations are well documented in the National Identity Management System of the Federal Government of Nigeria. Apart from the fact that the unique National Identification Number (NIN) is a lifelong personalized identification number, similar to that of America´s Green Card Number or European´s Social Security Number, the unique National Identification Number is mandatory for all Nigerians. Already NIN number is a prominent feature in the new 10 years Nigerian international passport. Moreover, accessing future national services going will be dependent on your unique National Identification Number.

Hon. Gbandi calls on the Diaspora to avoid the experience of BVN rush when out of pressure most Diaspora have to travel outside their areas of residence to beat the deadline, leading to enormous cost and inconveniences. He reminded the Diaspora that the exercise apart from being mandatory for all Nigerians has also important social and economic implications for the Diaspora. He mentions the Diaspora Voting and the full participation of the Diasporas in the affairs of the country as one of them.

Hon. Gbandi explains further that The National Identity Management Commission (NIMC) has the mandate to carry out the enrolment of citizens and legal residents as provided for in the Act establishing it, create and operate a National Identity Database (NIDB), issue unique National Identification Number to qualified citizens and legal residents.

Hon. Gbandi explains that he and Diaspora stakeholders will commence full mobilization of all Nigerians in the Diaspora for the enrolment into the National Identity Database (NIDB), through Roadshows, Town Halls meetings and meetings with Diaspora Stakeholders across Europe and the Diaspora.

He urges Diaspora, especially in Germany, Italy, Austria and Netherlands to visit www.idcard.ng for pre-enrolment and appointment for biometric data capture. He assured Nigerians that Data obtained through the pre-enrolment exercise are EU privacy laws and GDPR compliant.

“We may not all necessarily agree on all the policies of the Federal Government, but this is one initiative we cannot afford not to massively participate in”, Hon. Gbandi concluded.

For all inquiries he urges all Diaspora to kindly contact Biosec country enrolment officers in their respective countries or contact or visit Biosec European Regional office at SĂĽderstr. 153, 20537, Hamburg, Germany, Tel. +49 40 35964940 or to visit www.biosec.com.ng for comprehensive information.

ROLE MODEL OF THE WEEK , TOMI ADETAYO – PHOTOGRAPHER & TEACHER

My name is Tomi Adetayo. I have two passions; teaching and photography. My project tells the story of people just like me, on a mission to achieve their dreams.

Combining my passion for photography with the skills I have gained from teaching (including communications and human relations), I took a bold step and initiated the 1000 faces project. Through this project – capturing close up shots of everyday people of diverse ages and walks of life and spending time to get to know them – each person has shared their unique experiences and stories with me. I love that just a twenty-minute session of photography can become an hour of sharing goals, aspirations, hopes and dreams.

25KINGS

As an amateur portrait photographer my goal is to show the world the potential for ordinary, everyday people to do extraordinary things. With the current situation in London and an increase in black youth violence, I embarked on a journey, sharing moments with 25 black men living in London who are making an impact in their communities. Through photography and short interviews, I capture 25 everyday men, their thoughts on the current situation in London, their desires, achievements and so much more. Visit the website on www.a1000faces.com/kings to learn more about these impactful black men.
