2018 Ambassadors Class

Appointments from 29 African Countries

ID4Africa is pleased to announce the appointment of Ambassadors from 29 countries for its 2018 Ambassador Class. These countries represent over 75% of sub-Saharan Africa by population.

Empowering Africa One Nation at a Time
Since its inception in 2016, the ID4Africa Ambassadors Program has not only continued to gain importance in the range of representation, but also in the breadth and depth of engagements from the Ambassadors who continue to be driven and active in advocating digital transformations of identity in their countries.

The ID4Africa Ambassadors are senior-level government officials with well-defined missions to promote and manage legal identity in their countries. Having been selected based on merit and experience, they represent a growing movement of individuals who are passionate about digital identity and the positive impact its various applications have on their nation’s socio-economic development. As identity experts, they volunteer their time to promote the responsible use of digital identity in Africa and act as important liaisons between ID4Africa 
and the institutions and identity stakeholders in their respective countries

ID4Africa Executive Chairman, Dr. Joseph J. Atick said: “The Ambassadors Program is a platform for empowering African Civil servants to influence and advance the identity agenda in Africa. The Ambassadors play an integral role in influencing the direction of the ID4Africa Movement, keeping us informed at a grander level on issues that are pertinent to our constituent countries. They ensure that their countries’ issues and concerns are part of the collective agenda of the Movement and that their countries are well represented in their delegations to the ID4Africa Annual Meeting.” He added, “Over the years, the level of seniority of the Ambassadors has risen, which is a testament to the importance the member countries are attaching to their participation in the Movement.”
