The Secretary of the Nigerian Bar Association (NBA, Yola branch), Gabriel Adigwu, has lauded the Corporate Affairs Commission’s new data protection policy, noting that customers are now more than ever before assured of their companies’ safety.
A statement signed by Rasheed Mahe, head of the CAC media unit, on Wednesday, in Abuja, quoted Mr Adigwu as saying this at a stakeholder meeting held in Yola.
Mr Adigwu described the policy as a timely measure introduced when fraudsters’ activities are on the increase.
Also speaking, some participants lauded the commission for organising the forum which, they described as enlightening and, therefore, urged the commission to ensure that it was sustained.
Other participants commended the CAC’s registrar for his digitisation efforts and urged the commission to redouble its efforts in sensitisation.
Responding, the CAC boss, Garba Abubakar, represented by Othman Audu, said the CAC collaborated 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.
He said this was because of the challenges the upgraded CRP may pose to some of the customers.
According to the statement, the forum, which covered the three North-East states, was in line with the CAC’s earlier commitment to keep customers abreast of developments around the commission and further improve the CRP’s usability.
It also explained that the forum aimed to improve the commission’s services, particularly by ensuring that State offices operated at par with the Head Office and to ensure that customers fully understood the workings of the CRP.
