Leading academics Olumide Babalola and Paolo Balboni have co-authored an explanatory guide demystifying Nigeria’s recently enacted data privacy legislation.

Titled “Annotated Nigeria Data Protection Act, 2023”, the N20,000 book simplifies clauses within the sweeping law signed June 2023. It delivers relatable analysis for professionals and individuals struggling with compliance implications.

Babalola, a Nigerian digital rights lecturer across UK universities, teams up with Maastricht University’s Professor Balboni, an internationally renowned expert in European data regulations.

Their accessible commentary on Nigeria’s privacy act offers locally-relevant insights, laced with comparative references from the EU’s gold standard General Data Protection Regulation.

Spanning aspects like individual rights, operational requirements and offences, the book unpacks need-to-know meanings of the multi-layered data protection provisions.

Its release comes at an opportune moment as public and private entities scramble to align data handling practices with the new stringent safeguards before looming enforcement kicks in.
