Nigeria’s Data Protection Is Constitutional – Isa Pantami

Professor Isa Pantami, Nigeria’s Minister of Communications and Digital Economy has stated that the protection of people’s data is a fundamental necessity. 

He stated this while addressing the Forum of technology ministers at the Future Tech Forum in London. 

The Minister said, “the protection of citizens data in the country is not just a secondary legislation but a constitutional requirement.” 

Nigeria already has some policies in place to ensure the protection of citizens’ data and to also build trust between government and citizens.  

There is also subsidiary legislation called the guidelines for processing personal data which gives impetus to the NDPR and assurance of confidentiality to citizens.  

“Thirdly, the government also invested in creating awareness among the citizenry to enable understanding of both the regulation and government’s willingness to adhere to the dictates of law regarding confidentiality,” Isa Pantami affirmed.
