South West Govs to meet Buhari over Amotekun
Ondo State Governor, Rotimi Akeredolu, says Southwest governors are ready to meet with President Muhammadu Buhari on a dialogue over their security initiative codenamed ‘Operation Amotekun’. Akeredolu who is the head of the Southwest governors forum explained that the initiative will be discuss with Buhari, particularly on why it is urgently needed in the South-west region of the nation.
Governor Akeredolu told newsmen in Abuja on Friday morning that the meeting with Buhari would have taken place if not for his trip to the United Kingdom last week.
The governor insisted that contrary to insinuations borne out of ignorance about the security outfit, Amotekun is not a regional militia by the Southwest states but a child of necessity to help the security agencies to perform better.
Recall that the Federal Government and the governors of the South-West states on Thursday reached a middle ground on the controversial security outfit, Operation Amotekun, as both settled for a legal “framework.”
