The Surveyor General of the Federation (SGoF), Surv. Taiwo S. Adeniran has emphasized the need of synergy of the Office of the Surveyor General of the Federation (OSGoF) with the Nigerian Military and all other security outfits in order to secure Nigerians and Nigeria.
In a statement released by the Office in Abuja and signed by the Head of Press and Public Relations. Mr. Abu I. Michael, it noted SGoF laid the emphasis recently during the opening ceremony of Customized Training in Application of Geospatial Information Science and Technology in Military Intelligence and Surveillance for officers of the Defence Intelligence Agency (DIA) in Abuja.
While saluting the courage and gallantry of the Military and other security personnel who offered their precious lives in the prosecution of wars against the Boko Haram insurgency and other acts of terrorism in parts of the country, he urged them to consistently liaise with the Department of Intelligence Surveys of OSGoF for timely provision of near real-time geospatial data for the success of their operations.
He commended the military for appreciating the necessity of geospatial science in its operations as demonstrated by the training it requested from the African Regional Institute for Geospatial Information Science and Technology (AFRIGIST) requested for its officers.

In his remarks, the AFRIGIST Executive Director, Dr. Adewale Akingbade disclosed that the training was the third of its kind following the successful ones carried out for the Nigerian Air Force in 2019 and recently for the Defence Space Administration.

He then commended the Chief of Defence Intelligence (CDI) for approving the training for his officers.

The CDI represented by Major General C. M. Abraham said the military value the place of geospatial science in its operations hence the approval for the training. He thanked the SGoF for his support for the training pointing out that such synergy would benefit the country.
