Insecurity: Kano streets get surveillance cameras

The Deputy Governor of Kano State, Dr Abdulahi Ganduje, says the state government is applying  scientific approach to combat insecurity by installing  surveillance cameras in strategic areas of the state.

Ganduje told  journalists at the weekend: “We are  also constructing gates as you enter Kano metropolis that will be fitted with cameras”.

“At least this will be better than the long queues of lorries you see  security people checking without tangible results”, he stated.

“But, most importantly, it is the responsibility of the Federal Government to ensure that  insurgency is  checked.

“Apart from this, we also provide logistics when the need arises to combat insecurity in the state”.

Ganduje, who is also aspiring to take over from his boss, Governor Rabiu Kwankwanso, this year, vowed to continue all the developmental projects embarked upon by Kwankwanso  if voted into office.

He said he had worked with his boss for almost 16 years to  understudy him and build on his legacies as he leaves office this year.

On whether he would  support  state police, Ganduje said: “Yes. I will vote for state police because we don’t have enough policemen to man everywhere.

“ The policemen we have now, especially those not from their respective states, are not used to the culture, custom and nooks and crannies of the states and, therefore, would find it  difficult to cope with the insecurity situation on our hands now.”
