Lagos to install 10,000 CCTV cameras across the state

Lagos state government says it has concluded plans to install 10,000 CCTC cameras across the state. The state Commissioner for Economic Planning and Budget, Akinyemi Ashade, stated this while giving a breakdown of the 2016 budget, tagged ’The Peoples’ Budget’ before newsmen.
“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.”‎he said

Real internet income said...

This budget sure looks high to me. I just wonder why Nigeria do not carry out any construct or repairs/works that will not include the figure billion as what was/is to be spent. So that means we have left the era of calling or spending anything worth millions anymore.
This is very serious on the nations economy. Naira is indeed in big trouble who can help us?

Is not by fixing cctv everywhere the issue is can they maintain it? Or its another way or embezzlement? Moreover agbero doesn't show on cctv cameras.

This is evil. CCTV cameras cost an absolute max of $500 a camera and that is if you're buying the very very best cameras. Multiply $500 by 10,000 cameras, you get 1.25 billion naira. What happens to the 8 billion naira that is left over????? I weep. This is pure evil.

I don't understand our leaders priorities . Is camera not powered by electricity . Am thinking deep . No street lights , how will the recordings be clear even if it captures anything or a high powered infra red camera ? Guys Pls tell our leaders to always think thru their policies , activities and seek advice from external experts . They shld learn to hear the truth and indulge meaning development.
