COVID-19: Akwa Ibom govt deploys 3G tech to monitor borders



The Governor of Akwa Ibom State, Emmanuel Udom has revealed that the state government has deployed the use of 3G cameras to monitor human infiltration through the state’s borders.

Governor Udom who revealed this in a post on Twitter on Saturday said that Akwa Ibom State had deployed “3G cameras” at her borders in the place of the physical surveillance practiced in the past.

“There are 3G cameras at our borders. We monitor every movement at our situation rooms. It is there at Itu, Ikot Abasi and other busy borders. We don’t take pleasure in noise making. The fact that you don’t see me jump on trailers does not mean we are not doing our best,” he tweeted.

Governor Udom who made the announcement which formed part of his statewide broadcast days ago, noted that the order was part of modalities that will guide the gradual lifting of the lockdown of the state.

During the statewide broadcast, Governor Udom said that the reopening of the state is in line with guidelines from the federal government to relax some restrictions which were put in place to enable the country manage the pandemic, saying the state would seize this opportunity “to open up our economy and put our State back to work again”.
