Talking about the level of automation of border surveillance in the country, Dr. Tunji-Ojo stressed that,”we have gone very far,at the moment we have done up to sixty percent in terms of deployment, ” what we are doing now is automating the whole surveillance system in our border space and I think it is about sixty percent now.

” I just saw it now,real time we can view a lot of our borders at this moment. The simple truth is that we are automating the whole process. He projected that by October the first phase of the whole border surveillance system would have been completed.

He emphasized that securing our borders is very important in terms of securing our nation and this current administration under President Bola Ahmed Tinubu is not leaving any stone unturned in the quest of making Nigeria a safe country for people to be able to sleep with their two eyes closed.
“I can tell you that anyone who thinks he can perpetrate illegality within ourboarderspace should be prepared,” he warned.
The Minister also hinted at incorporating an intelligence gathering partnership with the border communities within the automation system.
