OAU Professor Emerges New NSC President





The Nigeria Computer Society ‎(NCS) has elected Professor Sola Aderounmu as the next president of the information technology advocacy group for the next two years, (2015-2017).


Aderounmu, a Professor of Computer Science, from the Obafemi Awolowo University (OAU), Ile-Ife, Osun State, who eventually emerged winner in an election conducted in Akure, Ogun State, shortly after the Annual General Meeting (AGM) of NCS, contested the position with the Chairman, Mobile Software Solutions, Mr. Chris Uwaje, who is fondly called the 'Oracle' of Information Technology (IT) profession.

Uwaje, however lost gallantly to the computer professor.

Although there were initially protests over some provisions of the new electoral guidelines released barely three days‎ to the elections, but the National Executive Council (NEC) and members of NCS, reached a compromise before proceeding with the elections.

Prof. Aderounmu polled 88 votes to defeat Uwaje who gave good account of himself rallying 62 votes.
Uwaje who accepted the election results in good fate, said although he put up a good fight, but lost gallantly to Aderounmu.


The incoming president takes over from Professor David Adewumi, whose tenure ended immediately after this year's AGM.

Prof. Aderounmu,‎ a fellow of the Nigeria Computer Society, was the Vice President to Prof. Adewumi. He is also the Director, Information Technology and Communications Unit of the Obafemi Awolowo University (OAU), Ile-Ife, Osun State.

The astute computer scientist with professional accomplishments, has promised to pursue various agenda to reposition NCS for the benefits of IT practitioners, the academia and the nation at large‎.

Mrs. Veronica Owolabi who garnered 105 votes to defeat Mr. Emmanuel Emecheta who got 44‎ votes, becomes NCS Vice President, while Mr. Jide Awe, the former Chairman, Publicity Committee, was elected as Chairman, Conferences Committee.

Aderounmu who thanked the entire NCS members for given him the mandate to direct the affairs of NCS in the next two years, listed his priority agenda to include leading the NCS to the path of more advocacy, research and development in IT and establishing more physical presence for the Computer Society.

He said NCS, under his watch, would pursue various programmes to engender IT penetration in rural areas and the use of indigenous software.
