Customer phone data in Nigeria and how government handles it

Buhari appoints Dr. Isa Ali Pantami Director General of NITDA - Tekedia

Customer phone data in Nigeria and how the government handles it. The Minister of Communications and Digital Economy, Dr. Isa Pantami explains: “It is only the security institutions that have power and access to people’s lines; we do not have such power, if not, it will be abused. It will be wrong for anybody to contact NCC or the ministry to provide data of any subscriber. Ours is when we are contacted that we will provide to the security agencies the data they need. Even when we are contacted, there are requirements constitutionally to do that because telephone conversations are meant to be confidential as stipulated by section 37 subsection 39 of the constitution.
