Minister of Communications and Digital Economy, Bosun Tijani has announced a significant collaboration with the Ministry of Interior.

Tijani made the announcement when he hosted his counterpart, Minister Olubunmi Tunji Ojo, to discuss ways to enhance government services through technology.

During the meeting, according to a post he shared on X, they presented the 112 emergency number service solution, facilitated by the Nigerian Communications Commission, NCC, to key officials from the Nigerian Immigration Service, Nigeria Correctional Service, Nigeria Security & Civil Defence Corps, and the Federal Fire Service.

These agencies are crucial for internal security and emergency response.
