Olatunji’s strategic and innovative initiatives have played a crucial role in establishing strong international partnerships, driving sustainable growth, and promoting a culture of collaboration. This not only propelled the NDPC to new heights but also set a benchmark for international cooperation and industry standards.

The Giovanni Buttarelli Award celebrates leaders who have demonstrated exceptional leadership and promoted collaboration at a regional or international level in the field of data privacy and protection. Nominees are evaluated based on their contributions to projects that have led to the development of innovative concepts or practices, significantly impacting the international data protection and privacy community, as well as partnerships and initiatives that enhance global cooperation and development.

Responding to his nomination, Olatunji expressed his gratitude and emphasised the importance of collective effort in achieving global progress. “I am deeply honoured to be nominated for the Giovanni Buttarelli Award 2024,” said Olatunji. “This recognition is a testament to the hard work and dedication of our entire team at NDPC.
