The Akwa Ibom State government has concluded plans to equip the state capital, Uyo, with Closed-Circuit Television (CCTV) cameras to boost surveillance.

The Commissioner for Science and Technology, Dr. Nse Essien, told journalists, yesterday, that the government has signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with the Ibom Smart City Project for the provision of Wi-Fi in the capital.

He said the intention of the administration was to ensure a fully digitalised and technologically advanced state. He disclosed that another MoU was signed with Broad Based Communication for the laying of fibre optic cables to promote Internet connectivity.
