FG Unveils 5-Year Plan for Data Protection, Anticipates Over N125bn in Revenue

The Nigeria Data Protection Commission (NDPC) introduced the Nigeria Data Protection Strategic Roadmap and Action Plan (NDP-SRAP 2023-2027) in Abuja, aiming to foster the creation of 500,000 jobs and the generation of more than N125 billion in revenues.

Simultaneously, a five-pillar NDP-SRAP launch coincided with a capacity-building workshop on Data Privacy and Protection for Data Protection Officers.

The plan’s pillars encompass governance, technology and ecosystem, human capital development, cooperation and collaboration, and funding and sustainability.

Dr Vincent Olatunji, NDPC’s National Commissioner, emphasized the pivotal role of the NDP-SRAP and associated training in fortifying a robust data protection sector. He highlighted the alignment of this initiative with President Bola Tinubu’s agenda to create two million jobs in the digital economy, citing the potential for the data protection sector alone to contribute over 500,000 jobs.

Olatunji underscored the interconnectedness of initiatives within the NDP-SRAP, projecting their impact on job creation, wealth generation, human capital development, revenue generation, and bolstering Nigeria’s global reputation. He also emphasized the roadmap’s contribution to the growth of international businesses, global competitiveness in human capital, and enhancing security measures to thwart identity misuse and unauthorized access to data.

Furthermore, Olatunji outlined the comprehensive nature of the NDP-SRAP, emphasizing its relevance across various sectors and professions. He expressed the need for collaborative efforts among public institutions, the private sector, civil society organizations, and the media to ensure effective implementation.

Highlighting the consideration for a local Data Protection and Certification body, Olatunji stressed the importance of cultivating home-grown solutions and certifications to match global standards, eliminating the reliance on expensive foreign certifications.

The NDP-SRAP, a product of one year’s preparation, aligns with the “Renewed Hope” agenda and the Ministry of Communications and Digital Economy’s blueprints.

Mr Ivan Anya, Chairman Board of Trustees, Licensed Data Protection Compliance Organisations (LDPCOs), emphasized ongoing engagements to ensure successful implementation, highlighting the growth potential of the country’s data protection ecosystem.

Dr Ayodeji Oyewole, President, Institute of Information Management (IM-Africa), commended NDPC’s efforts to enhance Nigeria’s data and information management landscape. He envisaged the roadmap’s futuristic impact, emphasizing its role in bolstering the economy and nurturing career development platforms.

The workshop witnessed the participation of 150 data protection officers.
