Buhari Approves Drones For Border Monitoring

According to The Nation, a source said the strategy was part of the e-Customs that the nation will use for the surveillance of the movement of illicit goods and persons.

President Muhammadu Buhari has approved the deployment of drones, aircraft and geospatial technology for the monitoring of borders, it was learnt on Tuesday.

According to The Nation, a source said the strategy was part of the e-Customs that the nation will use for the surveillance of the movement of illicit goods and persons.

With the procurement and deployment of the e-Customs, the borders shall record a watertight security that will foreclose the need for the erection of physical walls.

The source said: “The President has just approved e-Customs. E-Customs encompasses the deployment of border management technology, which will incorporate the use of drones, aircraft and other geo-spatial technology to be able to monitor our borders to ensure that any illicit movement of goods and persons do not take place. Once that is in place, I think we will be very safe that we do not need walls to be erected.”
