Use modern technology to check borders instead of closure, CAN advises FG
The Vice-Chairman North – West of Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN) Bishop David Bakare has advised the Federal Government to use modern technologies to check our porous borders instead of closing the borders.
He gave the advise while briefing Journalists in his office on the activities of his Church in the last 30 years in Zaria.
Bishop Bakare said closing the borders will not solve the problems immediately but with the use of modern technologies it will definitely address the problems facing our borders.
The Clergyman who is also the Vice President of Pentecostal Fellowship of Nigeria said ‘our borders are open and porous in such a way that insurgents from other countries can infiltrate Nigeria with no problem.
On the security challenges, he noted there is the need to address the situation and find a lasting solution to it once and for all.
He said Government should give attention to the community Policing to check activities of criminals and those that have a questionable character in the community.
