Mr. Chukwuemeka Fred Agbata (Jnr) (CFA), one of NiRA’s Executive Board of Directors was a guest to the German Bundestag (Parliament) on the invitation of Alexander Count Lambsdorff, MP to discuss Digitisation in Africa. CFA chose to appear as an African Prince and shared some of the pictures above.
CFA, as he is fondly called in Tech and Media circles, was the only African in the parliament on the 19th of September 2019. He shared on his “Sunday Updates” platform, that even though his security clearance took a while, he made bold to own his space. Mr. Agbata described the experience as amazing and humbling. In his words, “the politics over there is indeed a different ball game”. Adding that Africa (particularly in the space he operates) has shown and continues to show enough hunger to want to solve some of the biggest problems the continent faces.
CFA promises to discuss the visit in detail in his next Punch Column. We look forward to benefiting from his wealth of experience as the Germans did.
