Akwa Ibom governor, Udom Emmanuel has come out to say that his government has installed 3G cameras in all the busy borders to track every movement into the state.
Udom Emmanuel revealed this recently during a live Radio and Television programme aired on Akwa Ibom Broadcasting Corporation, (AKBC).
According to him, there is no inter-state traveling across Nigeria so citizens must keep obeying it to protect the residents of the country.
He added that his people should not fear because the cameras at Ikot Abasi, Ikot Ekpene will keep the virus out by making sure the borders are well protected.
His words, “There was a trailer that brought goats and cows to Eket local government area and when we checked the trailer there were only thirteen (13) occupants. And as soon as they off-loaded the goats and cows the thirteen passengers were moved back in the trailer and physically escorted out of Akwa Ibom state by security agents.
“There is no inter-state travelling across the country now, so people must obey that. So I want to reassure you that our people are well-protected. If you go to our borders like the Itu bridge, you will see a 3G camera installed their borders.
“We also have the Cameras in all the busy borders like Ikot Abasi, Ikot Ekpene. We don’t take pleasure in noise making. People have different styles of working. The fact that you don’t see me jump on heavy-duty vehicles, does not mean we are not doing our best.
“Trust us, we have secured our borders and I am happy that we are getting the results we want. So at this time maintain your faith, don’t fear”
“The Federal government is supposed to actually help us. With the help they are getting from the United Nations, European Union, they are supposed to help the states with at least one testing center.
”In the whole of this region, comprising Cross River, Akwa Ibom, Rivers, Bayelsa, Delta, Edo, Federal government has not set up even a single testing centre.
“The one we used to have in Port-Harcourt has been down and the Federal government promised us since last week that they are going to bring it up so that we can be going there for testing. As I am talking to you, we drive seven and half hours to Irua to do testing”
