FG To Unveil State Data Centre To Protect Citizens Biodata


Federal government is set to launch a state-of-the-art data centre capable of storing up to 1.4 petabytes of citizens’ biodata before May 29, 2024.

The centre, LEADERSHIP gathered, will house a comprehensive range of critical national information, including citizens’ bio-data.

The minister of interior, Dr Olubunmi Tunji-Ojo, made the announcement when he hosted a delegation of the National Union of Nigerian Associations in Italy (NUNAI) led by its president, Chief Rowland Ndukuba, in Abuja on Monday evening.

While emphasising the importance of embracing technology and innovation, Dr Tunji- Ojo Olubumi stressed that modern challenges require novel, cutting-edge technological solutions. He added that integrating advanced technology would enhance efficiency and accountability across national operations.

In response to the requests of NUNAI for intervention, collaboration, and the establishment of passport front offices, the minister promised to review their request, after which, appropriate information would be communicated in due course.

He however, warned that the President Tinubu led administration would not condone illegal migration and that Nigerians attempting to emigrate through unlawful means will face the consequences of their actions.

Earlier, Ndukuba said the federal government was moving to halt the challenges faced by Nigerians in Italy.
