The Minister of Interior, Rauf Aregbesola, has disclosed that the Federal Government is working towards installing an electronic border surveillance system that will help Nigeria Immigration Service, NIS, effectively secure the country’s land borders.

The minister made the disclosure on Monday during a joint press conference with the Minister of Information and Culture, Lai Mohammed, in Abuja.

According to Mr Aregbesola, when that is finalised, “we will then say that we have an improved border security system”.

He said: “Nigeria has wide borderline from the Eastern flank to the North East through the North West down to the South West and then the littoral part of the Gulf of Guinea.

“What I will tell you is this: besides the fact that we are putting in place further operation bases, we continue to check and move through the borders and the boundaries.

“We are emplacing electronics border surveillance system that utilises satellite technology to have effective control of every inch of our boundary.

“The best is yet to come, we are certainly working to have the best border management system.”
