An assembly of high level officials responsible for National Security to the Federal Government of Nigeria was in the U.S. this month to evaluate security solutions in light of escalating security concerns in Nigeria. Due to the recent security threats and bombings striking this democratic nation, efforts are being made to help enforce public safety. Microsoft hosted the high level officials on a tour of an American city that has a true Microsoft-based security solution deployed. The preferred solution is the same one that Total Computer Group has shown to top level Nigerian officials in the past: Total Enforcement.
The Delegation Lead, Mr. Hafeez Ringim (Inspector General of Police) visited Long Beach PD and met with Lieutenant Bill Dodge as well as Commissioner Sofield. A review of policing methods, best business practices, and state-of-the-art technology was discussed. Additional meetings and policing processes/methodologies were discussed and reviewed at Total Computer Group’s corporate headquarters in Melville, NY. Discussions of a national deployment commenced with Microsoft present. Other guests from Nigeria included: Mr. Mohammed Yesuf (Deputy Inspector General of Police), Mr. Raymond Nkemdirim (Director of Operations), DSS,Lt Col. Nicholas Ashinze (Special Assistance to NSA), and Mr. Timasaniyu Ahmed-Rufai (Director General NICOMSAT).
Nigeria has an excellent relationship with the U.S.. The U.S. Government is acting as a mentor to the young Nigerian democratic government. U.S. officials including George Bush, Colin Powell, and Condoleezza Rice are among those who recently visited Nigeria to grow the relationship between both countries.
