Mr President has now given us the go-ahead to resuscitate the project and we have already entered into a concession agreement with NPS technologies. They are there trying to re-fix the entire system to resuscitate it.
“By the time this system is put in place, we will have a lot of technology to manage this crisis – particularly this issue of kidnapping. We will go a long to ensure that we reduce the number of kidnappings in this country,” the Minister said.
When asked if the CCTV will be in only major cities like Abuja, the Minister said :
“The CCTV is going to be on all the major highways in all the states of the Federation, it is everywhere in this country.”
