President Bola Ahmed Tinubu Signs Nigeria Data Protection Bill 2023 into law

On June 14th, 2023, President Bola Ahmed Tinubu signed the Nigeria Data Protection Bill into law, providing a legal framework for the protection of personal information and data protection in Nigeria.

The bill was sent to the Senate and House of Representatives for consideration and passage on April 4th, 2023, via a letter from former President Muhammadu Buhari.

The new law establishes the Nigeria Data Protection Commission, replacing the NDPB established by Buhari in February 2022, and will be led by a National Commissioner responsible for regulating the processing of personal information.

Dr. Vincent Olatunji, the National Commissioner of the NDPB, confirmed the signing at the NDPD Strategic Roadmap and Action Plan validation workshop in Abuja.
