First City Monument Bank introduces Instant Funds Transfer via its Electronic Channels
The website http://www.policevrp.com is an initiative of the Nigerian Police Force and is an example of how Information & Communications Technology can help solve coordination problems in the Government. I have personally not tested out the service and as such can not totally vouch for it but here are some features I think you might be interested in:
- Nigerians can report stolen vehicles via SMS. If the vehicle is recovered a text message is sent back to the person confirming retrieval
- The website publishes a list of stolen cars submitted via SMS on the web so fellow Nigerians can help track the stolen cars down. In addition, the website promises a reward for citizens who assist others in tracking down their stolen vehicles
- The website publishes a list of stolen vehicles that are later found. Interestingly, there are a list of vehicles on this page. Recovered cars include stolen Toyota Camrys and Honda Accords among others.
I wanted to draw your attention to this important petition that I recently signed:
“Cybercrime Legislation for Nigeria” http://www.ipetitions.com/petition/cln/
I really think this is an important cause, and I’d like to encourage you to add your signature, too. It’s free and takes just a few seconds of your time.
