Is This Nigerian CCTV Megaproject Doomed To Failure?

I saw a post about a 10,000 cam highway safety project that has recently been approved by the government of Nigeria.

The author has some interesting takes on the subject that I thought might spark some good debate.

Has anyone had experience with large government installs where lack of infrastructure is a key pain point?
