NDPB: Buhari Appoints Olatunji Vincent As Pioneer National Commissioner by Nobody: 1:43pm On Feb 04
PRESIDENT BUHARI APPROVES THE NIGERIA DATA PROTECTION BUREAU (NDPB) AND APPOINTS DR OLATUNJI AS THE PIONEER NATIONAL COMMISSIONER

President Muhammadu Buhari, GCFR, has approved the establishment of the Nigeria Data Protection Bureau (NDPB). This followed a request made by the Honourable Minister of Communications and Digital Economy, Prof Isa Ali Ibrahim (Pantami). The NDPB has been established in line with global best practice and will focus on data protection and privacy for the country, among others.

The successful implementation of the National Digital Economy Policy and Strategy (NDEPS) for a Digital Nigeria has significantly increased the adoption of data platforms and accelerated the datafication of our society. This has increased the importance of having an institution that focuses on data protection and privacy.

Furthermore, the issuance of the Nigeria Data Protection Regulation (NDPR) in January 2019, as a subsidiary legislation to the National Information Technology Development Agency (NITDA) Act 2007, has increased awareness about the need for data protection and privacy. The Bureau will be responsible for consolidating the gains of the NDPR and supporting the process for the development of a primary legislation for data protection and privacy.

President Buhari also approves the recommendation of the Minister of Communications and Digital Economy, Professor Pantami, for Dr. Vincent Olatunji to serve as the National Commissioner/Chief Executive Officer of the Bureau. Dr. Olatunji hails from Ekiti State and, at the time of his appointment, was the Director of the eGovernment Development and Regulations Department at NITDA. The appointment takes effect immediately.

Honourable Minister of Communications and Digital Economy

This is commendable.

Those loan companies that send rubbish messages to defaulters contacts will reduce.

I am so sure Nigeria is headed in the right direction.

Nice!

Nothing new. Put in a southerner to do the hardwork and set up the place. Once it's running smoothly replace him with a northerner to enjoy the perks.

President Buhari, and Governor Fashola, help us deal with these *everywhere you go* agbero menace in Lagos...... it's an eyesore of the 21st century. Whether you guys see it or not it's largely responsible for the unwillingness of children and youths to read, this understandably by just displaying some hooliganism they can be assigned a spot on Lagos roads and make cool money off people's legit monies. So sad
