Insecurity: Akwa Ibom tasks FG on use of Hotline

The Akwa Ibom State Government has tasked the Federal Government on the use of security hotline and non-state actors like communal groups in the fight against insecurity in the country.
The State government gave the charge during a visit to the Ministry of Information and Strategy by the Faculty members and participants of the National Defence College Course 30, currently on Geo-Strategic Study Tour of Akwa Ibom.

Presenting the model used by Akwa Ibom State Government in combating insecurity in the state to the visiting team, the Commissioner for Information and Strategy, Comrade Ini Ememobong urged the Federal Government to enlist the use of security hotline with easy-to-memorize numbers and engagement of communal groups such as youth leaders in the national security network.

Ememobong intimated that, the State Government, through the Ministry of Information and Strategy, is running a security hotline with a memorizable phone number – 07000000001, which the public is using to send urgent messages and Information on security matters thus boosting the fight against insecurity in the state.

He said the profiling of non-state actors like the association of village youth leaders and boundary youth movement, in the state security network have also helped greatly as information from the communities are passed through these groups to relevant government agencies for quick response and action.

The Commissioner, who was briefing the visitors on the theme – “Countering Insecurity in Akwa Ibom State: The Whole of Society Approach To Enhancing Human Security”, stated that, in addition to these, the State government through the Ministry has set up a State Strategic Information Management Committee, SSIMC, which comprises of all relevant Federal government establishments operating in the state, including the Military and paramilitary organisations and the Nigerian Police Force, to enhance shared information on security matters in the state.
