CAC faults sabotage as it restores registration services

29 August 2014, 17:05Henry Ifeanyi

Lagos - The Corporate Affairs Commission (CAC) assured that its online services had been restored after its registration portal was hacked last week.

The intrusion led to the disruption of its current online company registration exercise.

It said it viewed the disruption as a deliberate attempt to sabotage the ongoing effort to deploy a new online registration system by October 1, as announced by the Ministry of Industry, Trade and Investment.

CAC said customers were nonetheless now free to forward and collect the results of their name searches, certificate of registration and other post incorporate filings from the point of submission.

“The commission thanks all its customers and the general public for their understanding and apologises once again for the hitches they encountered during the period of disruption of registration services,” said the commission in a statement on Friday.

CAC is an autonomous body charged with the responsibility to regulate the formation and management of companies in Nigeria.

It was established by the Companies and Allied Matters Act, which was promulgated in 1990 to regulate the formation and management of companies in Nigeria.

The establishment of the CAC as an autonomous body was as a result of the perceived inefficiency and ineffectiveness of the erstwhile Company Registry, a department within the Federal Ministry of Commerce and Tourism which was then responsible for the registration and administration of the repealed Companies Act of 1968.
