The IEEE Nigeria Section CN is a local network under the IEEE Alliance of IEEE Consultants Networks (AICN), USA and sponsored by the IEEE Nigeria Section. The Pioneer Chair, Dr. Kennedy Chinedu Okafor, received IEEE Region 8 approval on the 3rd December, 2019 to start up the Nigeria section CN which is first CN AG in region 8. The geo-code is CN80139.

The membership includes members of the IEEE and affiliates of the AICN who are in private practice or consulting. The networks provide free referral services and serves both independent consultants and those willing to work through contract engineering firms. IEEE CN referrals are primarily provided through the IEEE-USA Consultants Database. Our web site includes the ability to browse and search our networks’ members in that database and provides convenient access to the whole database. Our focus is on providing clients with the fastest and easiest access to information about consultants in any part of Nigeria and beyond.
