NBA commends CAC’s new data protection policy 



The Secretary, Nigeria Bar Association (NBA), Yola, Mr  Gabriel Adigwu, has lauded  the Corporate Commission’s new data protection policy, noting that customers were now than before assured of the safety of their companies.


A signed by Mr. Rasheed Mahe, head of the CAC media unit, on Wednesday, in Abuja, quoted Adigwu as saying this at a stakeholder meeting held in Yola.

Adigwu described the policy as a direct measure introduced at a time when activities of fraudsters were on the increase.


Also speaking, some participants  lauded the commission for organising the forum which, they described as  enlightening and, therefore, urged the commission that it was sustained.


Other participants  commended the Registrar General for his digitization efforts and urged the commission to redouble its efforts in the area of sensitisation.


Responding, the CAC Boss, Alhaji Garba Abubakar, represented by Othman Audu, said that the Commission, in collaboration with the Companies Registration Portal (CRP) software developer, Oasis Management Company Limited, decided to organise a one-day sensitisation program  in Adamawa, Yobe and Borno states.


This was in view of the challenges the upgraded CRP may pose to some of the customers, said.


Audu reiterated the Registrar General’s earlier commitment to ensuring that customers were adequately sensitised on the workings of the upgraded registration module and to provide services in line with global best practices.


According to Mahe, the forum, which covered the three North east states, was in line with the Registrar General’s earlier commitment to customers abreast of developments around the commission and to improve usability of the CRP.


also said that the forum aimed to improve the commission’s services, particularly by ensuring that offices operated at par with the Head Office and that customers fully understood the workings of the CRP. (NAN)
