The National Information Technology Development Agency (NITDA), the Defence Headquarters (DHQ), and other Security agencies are exploring ways to develop and deploy digital solutions to address the security challenges facing the country.

The digital solutions would be in the form of drones, Artificial Intelligence, (AI), and usage of other digital assets to combat terrorism, kidnapping, and banditry across Nigeria.

NITDA is also bringing Cisco International which had been involved in designing various digital platforms and assets for the US military to the project to enable Nigeria to overcome the current security challenges as soon as possible.

The Director General of NITDA, Kashifu Inuwa Abdullahi disclosed this during an interactive session with reporters at the Hotel Continental, Abuja on Wednesday, May 15.

Abdullahi who used the forum to unveil the Strategic Roadmap and Action Plan (2024-2027) of NITDA, said the roadmap aligned with President Bola Tinubu’s Renewed Hope Agenda as encapsulated in the eight points agenda of the present administration.

He explained that the partnership with DHQ and other security agencies with the involvement of Cisco would present opportunities for robust engagement, innovations, and co-creation of digital technology and assets to combat terrorism and other security challenges facing Nigeria.
