He said that advancing and protecting the web was essential to reverse growing inequality and empower citizens.
“It has taken all of us to build the web we have, and now it is up to all of us to build the web we want for everyone.
“Today, we are working with more than 160 partner organisations to advance our mission in over 70 countries.
“We are helping to change the lives of over two billion people by connecting everyone, raising voices and enhancing participation through the open web.
“We are building a future in which the web empowers everyone, everywhere, to take part in building a fairer world,’’ the web inventor said.
Berners-Lee said that the Web Foundation blended powerful advocacy, cutting-edge research and practical innovation to build a better web for all.
The Chief Executive Officer, Chocolate City Records, Audu Maikori, who was rearrested in Abuja is currently being held at the Gabasawa Police Station, Kaduna State and allegedly sharing the same cell with arrested herdsmen.
A source at the police station told our correspondent that Maikori, who was arrested on Friday, would have been charged to court immediately but the police deliberately refused to commence the prosecution process.
The source said family and friends of the businessman were barred from seeing him.
Efforts made by our correspondent to confirm whether or not Maikori is sharing same cell with herdsmen proved abortive as the Kaduna Police Public Relations Officer, Aliyu Usman’s phone indicated that he was out of coverage area.
It was gathered that the case had been transferred to the Attorney General of Kaduna State and that the Chocolate City boss would appear in Court on Monday for trial.
Maikori is being charged for incitement and sharing fake information.
A close friend of the embattled record company boss stated that Audu was in need of medical attention as he collapsed at an event some days ago.
“He needs to be with his doctors but he doesn’t have access to them where he is. However, a team is being set up to look into the matter and provide legal representation for him,” he said.

A Facebook user identified as Chidi Wazinga Ilechukwu, share photos miraculous water seen dropping from the jaw of the Divine Mercy statue in Amichi, Anambra state.
At first I was reluctant sharing these pictures online. It took me and some priests days to asertain this miraculous drop of water from the jaw of the Divine Mercy statue.
Since Ash Wednesday upuntill this moment, there has been an unfathomable dropping of water even at the hottest heat of the sun. Go to Jesus and Mary Adoration ground Amichi and see for yourself.
I observed that the drop comes out and hang without dropping on the ground. When you wipe it and stand to see another come out and from where it will come out, I bet you, you will stand till “thy kingdom come” and nothing will come out. But if you move a little distance away from the Statue and come back, you will still see a drop. People are confirming its healing power.
What the Lord has done is marvelous in our eyes.
Keep sharing this let people go and confirm this divine phenomenon.
