Lagos State Government To Install 10,000 Close Circuit Television (CCTV) Across The State

Commissioner for Economic Planning and Budget, Mr. Akinyemi Ashade, said this while giving a breakdown of the 2016 budget, tagged ’The Peoples’ Budget’, saying the government will also activate the existing 1,000 CCTV cameras already installed in the state.

According to him, “We will be expanding our ICT infrastructure statewide. Consequently, a budget of N9.6 billion has been approved for this purpose in 2016. This will include a Smart City project targeted at deploying technology to enhance security in the state. It will also aid our revenue generating efforts.

“We will be increasing coverage of CCTV installations in the state. Our goal is to have over 10,000 active cameras, connected by Broadband. The existing 1,000 cameras will be reactivated and these will be increased by an additional 3,000 cameras after the completion of the first phase of this project.”
