The Commissioner/CEO of Nigeria Data Protection Bureau (NDPB), Mr Vincent Olatunji, has tasked organisations, ministries and agencies to harness the potential of the youth to accelerate the nation’s economy.
The commissioner made this clarion call at the ongoing hybrid 14th Annual Conference of the ISACA Abuja on the theme, “Digital Innovation and the Future of Work: Implications for Community, Industry and Governance” which was held at the Seun Musa Yar’Adua Centre in Abuja.
According to Olatunji, these youth are loaded with ideas and are ready to take risks in the area of the digital technology space.
He added: “They are doing a lot, have a lot of potential and talents. All we need to do is put appropriate measures in place and take advantage of their maximum potential.”
While describing Nigeria as a special nation, the commissioner cited “We have a population of over 220 million people and 65 per cent of this population is made up of the digital serving youth.
