Malik Ado-Ibrahim, presidential candidate of the Young Progressives Party (YPP), says he will deploy drones to tackle insecurity if elected president.

 

Ado-Ibrahim spoke on Monday during an interview with Channels Television.

 

Over the years, Nigeria has witnessed a spate of violent attacks in parts of the country.

 

Speaking on how he will tackle insecurity, the YPP presidential candidate said Nigeria must change the tactics used to fight banditry and insurgency.

 

 “There is a motive to change the air superiority that Nigeria should have. It is not about Super Tucanos. It is not about making something; it is what we are going to use,” the YPP presidential candidate said.

 

“For example, I like the idea of using drones. They are safe. They can be built in Nigeria. We can localise production, but what drones give you is what we are not qualified to do tomorrow.

 

“We can’t train our pilots quick enough to fly night machines. We don’t have filming energy. We don’t have the weapon systems. We don’t have night vision capabilities but if you are sitting in a drone environment where you have the optics and the dashboard to be able to see your enemies, we can fly at night.

 

 “We can see bodies at night. We use filming energy; we can pinpoint 300 people moving in a bush. The enemies know we don’t fly at night. So, when do they do their mischief? At night. We need to change things.”
