NASFAT backs installation of CCTVs in public places

An Islamic group, Nasrul-lahi-L-Fatih Society (NASFAT), has advocated the installation of Closed-Circuit Television Cameras (CCTVs) in strategic public places to reduce the menace of insecurity confronting the nation.

Suwebat Kupolati, the group’s national women affairs secretary, made this call at a news conference to mark the organisation’s seventh Biennial Women’s Conference on Monday in Ado-Ekiti, Ekiti.

“We support the proposal by Gov. Oluwarotimi Akeredolu of Ondo that Close Circuit Television Cameras (CCTV) should be installed at all religious centres to ward off senseless attacks.

“NASFAT is totally in support of CCTVs being planted in faith-based areas,” she said.

She said installing CCTVs in strategic public places would assist security agencies in having first-hand information in tackling crime and criminality efficiently and effectively.

Recently, the Ondo governor ordered that CCTV cameras be installed in all public facilities and private institutions in the state, following the increasing spate of insecurity.

“This becomes imperative in the light of the increased spate of insecurity in the country and the need to ensure the security of lives and properties in all public and private institutions and centres throughout the state,” the governor said via a statement.

Ms Kupolati also expressed the need for governments at all levels to explore the right economy and methods to lift the nation out of its economic and security challenges.

She charged the three tiers of government to commit huge investment to job creation and technological innovation to curb the challenges of kidnapping, killings and drug abuse.

“We all know that this government has done well in the area of insecurity, but the bulk of this problem is as a result of unemployment.

“Government must provide jobs for our youths to reduce drug abuse and kidnapping,” she stated.
