Gerald Ilukwe, Galaxy Backbone Managing Director, said the forum is a Stakeholders’ Awareness Series (SAS) discussing how stakeholders in the defence, intelligence and security sectors could leverage ICT benefits to handle current challenges.

“The forum is particularly pertinent given the current national security situation and the general acceptance that ICTs will play a vital role in addressing such challenges,” Ilukwe said.

He added the country should conduct more conflict prevention operations via counter-terrorist strategies to international peacekeeping.

Defence Minister Adetokunbo Kayode, and Minister of Communications and Technology, Omobola Johnson, will both attend as guests of honour.

    It is good to develop the ict to enhance communications. May God see us through.

  2. Nigeria is under policed with just three hundred thousand police protecting about two hundred million people in nigeria, security force in nigeria both the military and the police should be raised up to twenty million. With about five hundred and fifty security personel posted in each of the 36 states of the federation. This number shal be enough to be scartered across streets, markets, hospitals, prisons, ministeries n other areas in both rural and urban centers. Then the ICT will work. We have the resources to pay thos that will be recruited insted of wasting money on invisible security.

  3.
