President Muhammadu Buhari has come out to urge the National Security Adviser, NSA, Babagana Monguno to ensure that Internet and cyberspace are used for the enhancement of national security in Nigeria.

He recently revealed this via a statement by his Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, Femi Adesina, and Nigerians have been reacting.

According to him, he believes Nigeria can pave the way for the creation of new opportunities to usher in a bright future for all, driven by prosperous cyberspace and digital economy.

He then added that the Federal Government has taken some major policy decisions to increase penetration of the internet in the daily lives of citizens, particularly for a utilitarian purpose.

His words, “I urge the National Security Adviser to continue to coordinate the efforts of all stakeholders to ensure that our Internet and cyberspace are used for the enhancement of national security and economic progression.”

“I am confident that, together, we can pave the way for the creation of new opportunities to usher Nigeria into a bright future driven by a prosperous cyberspace and digital economy.”

”The President noted that the Federal Government had taken some major policy decisions to increase penetration of the internet in the daily lives of citizens, particularly for the utilitarian purpose, with launch of National Broadband Plan 2020 – 2025 in March 2020; National Digital Economy Policy and Strategy 2020 – 2030; National Identity Program, Treasury Single Account and Bank Verification Number schemes.”

“All these initiatives serve as enablers for tackling many of the economic and security challenges facing our country while also providing us with the platform to improve accountability and transparency in our unwavering resolve to tackle corruption.”

“However, like many other countries across the globe, the growth and development of the internet is accompanied by significant problems. We are witnessing a rise in threats posed by cybercriminals, online financial fraudsters and cyber terrorists who use the internet to cause apprehension.”
