When Will Nigeria Start Employing CCTV Cameras And Drones For Digital And E Policing?? By Adewale Peter

Nigeria is an amazing nation on the face of the earth. If am not mistaken some would agree with me that Nigerians are the second most populace race in the world next to China with a total population slightly more than that of india with a population of about 950 million persons if we are to go by head count all over the world. With 220 million persons bounded within the Nigerian boarder and territory and 730 million Nigerian Citizens dispersed or displaced all over the world for alot of economic, political, leadership and security reasons, like the Israelites of the world with presence in almost every country of the world today doing great things. On the average, 2 out of every 5 blacks or Africans are Nigerians.

It is appauling that lack of proper parameter for data collation has always undermine this fact for the greater economic advantage of the subject country. Unlike the way Nigeria has often been projected in a bad light all over the world like a third world, war thorn trashed site, Nigeria is an awesome country with hospitable and amiable people where you are free as a tourist to move around without mandatory tour guide like you would have in other countries. To be frank Nigeria with all the bad news hoozing out in volume and tons in the media about the decay of the security system in the country, Nigeria is by far safer to move about freely than in the USA, Russia, Ukrain, Portugal, Czech Republic, Uzebekistan, Thailand, Indonesia and a few other European, African and Asian countries.

This is not an attempt to cheapen the effort of the Nigerian security service chiefs and field operatives over the years to guarantee peace and protection of life and properties but to question the quality and efficiency of security services to the Nigerian populace and to put the Nigerian security architecture in the forefront of the global scurity map.

When is Nigeria of 1960 going to plug into the 21st century age of digital, cyber & E policing?? When are we going to start having security cameras in strategic areas and on telecommunication mast and high rise buildings for a close or ariel security glimpse of every nook and cranny of Nigeria to deter criminals?? Where are the CCTV camera on our roads and in our community and the space expedition projects to boost national security, information and intelligence gathering?
A situation where there is no digital central data base to profile and separate law abiding citizens and criminals.

Are we still waiting until the spate of insecurity start claiming the lives of our top uniform men and security service chiefs, our diplomats and senior states men and the rest of their family before we swing to action

What are we protecting as a national resource and asset?? The land, the water space, the air space, the crude oil, the gold deposit and other natural resource or the live of an average Nigerian to the last man on the street

Certainly Old security minds and experience hands matters at curbing or fighting crime but we need young, evolved and vibrant computer age thinkers to be incorporated into our security architecture else there is somebody some where with ulterior motives fooling somebody while while the rest of the nation is pitched on the steep lane of destruction.

Most of the crime perpetrated by criminals, hoodlums and miscreants are crimes that can be easily averted as the generic nature of the crime project a degenerative and low level of sophistication however they appear to look 2 to 4 times ahead of the Nigerian security operatives but except we kill our lukewarm, archaic and analog approach to security matters.

In a world where the rest of the advanced world are toeing space expedition, nuclear projects, digital and E policing and E military, It is appauling that we often try to play catch up with the rest of the world in terms of technology with is a tool and parameter to measure the pace of infrastructural and economic development. Our running to other countries to beg to buy weapon to protect our territories, boarders and the essence of our national unity is a disgraceful and shameful ones. If the USA and Russia or Germany must sell us weapon to fortify our military we should not expect the best of the best that can match their display of ammunition when we have a case of war and international face off as they would always sell us low grade weapons that would put them way ahead of us in terms of military strength.

Lack of adequate security measures would deter economic and infrastructural development and a lot of us know this.

*Lets picture the rippling effect of insecurity*

No doubt Nigeria is still by far better than a lot of country with sophistication in the rest of the world and I can mention categorically a list such as, Ghana, South Africa, Eritrea, Ethiopia, Somalia, Sierra Leone, Libya, Afghanistan, Iraq, Many of the Arab nations, North and South Sudan, Namibia, Cameroon, Congo DR, Equitorial Guinea, Niger, Benin Republic, Togo, North and South Sudan, most mediteranean countries, Colombia, Haiti, Honduras, Venezuela and even some part of the USA states and Europe, and a host of others but we must not deviate to elucidate the problem as it concerns Nigeria so as to nip this issue in the bud.

1. Lots of multinational corporation has pulled out and alot are still contemplating leaving while a lot who still hope
2. Spate of joblessness and unemployment amongst Nigerian youths.
3. Unpatriotic and demoralised psyche and attitude of security operatives
4. Low revenue from tourism
5. Discouragement of SMEs
6. Discouragement of blue chip industries to moisten and rejuvenate the economic space
7. Low morals and low drive of our Judiciary and Legislative to communicate and dispense their civic duties.
8. Discouragement of Public and Private Partnership for infrastructural development.
9. Discouragement of research minds in project for patriotic interest.
10. Discouragement and lukewarmness of the youth and sport development industry.
11. Discouragement of Citizens and corporate bodies to execute social responsibilities as required.
12. Discouragement and lukewarmness of the entertainment industries.
13. Incompetency and inefficiency in our educational system and institution for ethics and moral codes.
14. Lack of night life and economic activities that could boost internal revenues amongst a host of others.
15. Low investment and asset value for the real estate industry and for the Naira in the forex market.
16. Epileptic or Poor utility at electricity service unit.
17. It hampers holistic intervention to stem high way crime and road accidents on the Nigerian high way

Billions and trillions of naira and dollars have been lost and allocated for security provision but till now no solution. A lot of innocent souls of over 30 millions have been needlessly lost to crime of one form or the other.

9 out of 10 potential criminal would abstain from crime if they know there is an eye or a Camera watching them and taking record of every clip of the crime or event.

We need to call our government and security service men to order on what is being done to the billions and trillions of Naira and Dollars allocated for security over the years which has often endanger the life of both security field men and the citizens they protect in the cold embrace of crime.

There is no doubt our security architecture has been overwelmed with too many fractures here and there and our service chiefs are working tirelessly to keep things together at dispensing their civic duty within the ambit of limited resources availed to this sensitive ministry for security service but it would be an aberration to shade off the reality at hand ridden of sentiments.
When will the rest of the world start coming to Nigeria to learn about modern policing and military training and ethics?

I want to believe our security chiefs are already having sleepless night over this issue before it ascend to the climax of the "hunter hunted."
