President Muhammadu Buhari has approved the deployment of advanced technology to combat insecurity in the South East geo-political zone.
Governor Hope Uzodimma of Imo State stated this on Tuesday while answering questions from State House reporters after a meeting with the president at the Presidential Villa, Abuja.
He said he had come to see Buhari to appeal to him to approve the tech deployment to enable the area to deal effectively with the menace.
He said with the president’s approval, advanced surveillance equipment would soon be delivered to the region and would enhance the fight against insecurity without collateral damage.
Uzodimma said he visited the president to thank him on behalf of his people for what he had done for the region including the recent conversion of the Federal Medical Center Owerri to a university teaching hospital for the Federal University of Technology, and the approval that converted Alvan Ikoku College of Education to a federal college of education.
