The new Director-General of Nigerian Copyright Commission, Mr. John Asein, has declared his commitment to the reconstruction and repositioning of the commission for effective regulation and development of the nation’s copyright industries.
Following his appointment as Director-General of the NCC by President Muhammadu Buhari, Asein made this declaration at a recent meeting held by the management of the commission in Abuja.

Asein called for dedication and team work among the management and staff of the NCC. He pledged that the commission under his watch would develop a comprehensive intervention strategy that would impact positively on every sector of the creative industries.
He gave the assurance that the commission would be proactive in the execution of its mandate under the Nigerian Copyright Act CAP C28 Laws of the Federation of Nigeria 2004, adding that areas of its mandate like the visual arts and others, which had not received sufficient attention previously, would be covered.
“We must change the copyright narrative in Nigeria positively to impact the copyright-based industries to the benefit of all copyright stakeholders,” he said.
He stressed the need for a cohesive management team that would deliver on the mandate of the commission, adding that staff discipline, manpower development and institutional strengthening would be prioritised.
The former Acting Director-General, Mr. Kohol, in his remarks, underscored the need for all hands to be on deck to move the Commission forward.
He noted the need to revive some laudable projects that earlier featured in the Commission’s programmes.
