Governance

The Internet eXchange Point of Nigeria  (IXPN) is a company limited by guarantee.
Membership of IXPN and connection to any of the IXPN facilities or use of its services is formalised by the signing of the Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) and the Mandatory Multi-Lateral Peering Agreement (MMLPA).
Changes to the MoU and other governance documents as listed in clause 16.1 of the MoU, can be modified only by ordinary resolution of the company in a general meeting, IXPN shall not unilaterally modify these documents without a resolution passed at a formal general meeting.
The day-to-day running of IXPN is carried out by the IXPN Chief Executive Officer and IXPN staff, while the affairs of IXPN are overseen by the board.
The governing law of this MoU is that of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, and jurisdiction recognised is that of the Nigerian courts.
