The Nigerian Copyright Commission (NCC), under the leadership of its new Director-General, Mr. John Ohi Asein, has launched a branded NCC T-shirt produced by the Public Affairs Department (PAD) of the Commission towards the actualization of the corporate identity of the Commission.
According to the NCC, the initiative aligns with the DG’s vision of Changing the Copyright Narrative for sustainable development of the creative industries. The Commission has also adopted the hashtag – #StopPiracy, copyrightng – for the Commission’s public communications drive and social Media platforms.
The event which took place at the Commission’s Headquarters in Abuja on July 5, 2019 had some members of the Management and staff members of the Public Affairs Department in attendance.
Commending the Public Affairs Department for the initiative, the DG congratulated the Director of the Department, Mr. Vincent A. Oyefeso and entire staff of the PAD for a job well done. He noted that it was a demonstration of the latent spirit of actually wanting to do and going all out all to do positive things in the interest of the Commission. Expressing a pleasant surprise at the creative impetus of the Department, the Director-General noted that the initiative was an offshoot of the new dispensation which under his watch has watered the ground for good seeds to germinate for the advancement of the Commission and the copyright industries.
Other Directors and Heads of Departments in attendance along with the PAD staff include the Director, Administration, Mr. Idowu Ogunkuade; Director, Regulatory, Mr. Bitrus Dauda; Director, Enforcement, Mr. Augustine Amodu; Deputy Director and Head, Nigerian Copyright Institute (NCI), Mrs. Funmi Adewale and Assistant Director and Head, Internal Audit Unit, Mr. Babatunde Salami.
