The Vice Chairman, North-West, of Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN), Bishop David Bakare, has advised the Federal Government to use modern technology to check the country’s porous borders instead of closing them.
He gave the advice while briefing newsmen in his office on the activities of his church in the last 30 years in Zaria.
Bishop Bakare said closing the borders would not solve the problems immediately but with the use of modern technology, it would address the problems .
The cleric, 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 that there was the need to address the situation and find a solution to it.
He said government should pay attention to community policing in order to check activities of criminal elements in the community.Read Full Story
