Written by COMFORT 95.1FM on September 2, 2019
By 2021, the Federal Government’s planned electronic border monitoring will commence fully.
Comptroller General, Nigeria Immigration Service, Muhammad Babandede gave the assurance at the commission’s management retreat in Lagos.
Babandede said the e-border would enable officials to see real time online situation of the country’s borders.
He explained that the operations would be equipped with video surveillance for pedestrians, observable thermal and optical bi-spectrum for low visibility environment, unified IP telephony and video conferencing facilities and others.
You may recall that the Federal Executive Council had in April this year, approved fifty two billion naira for the electronic monitoring of Nigeria’s borders.
