Babatunde Bamigboye, the Head of Legal Enforcement and Regulation at the Nigerian Data Protection Commission (NDPC), has warned teenagers regarding the sharing of personal information on the internet. He emphasized the importance of protecting one’s data online and urged Nigerians to exercise caution when sharing their information to prevent it from being misused.
In a statement he released on behalf of the Director-General of the Commission, Vincent Olatunji, Bamigboye stressed the need to educate children about online privacy, as they are increasingly exposed to the same online risks as adults. He stated that safeguarding personal information should be included in the curriculum for children.
Bamigboye expressed hope that the teenagers who participated in the summer program organized by Teen Ambassador Foundation (TAF) would include future innovators and commended TAF for providing productive activities for children during the holiday.
He assured the teenagers that they would look back on the program with gratitude in the future, highlighting the growing importance of the information and communication technology (ICT) sector, particularly in fields like robotic artificial intelligence.
