Osun State Governor, Adegboyega Oyetola has come out to say that Amotekun is a necessity that will ensure the Southwest region remains safe.
He revealed this as he received the leadership of Yoruba Unity Forum led by Arch Bishop Ayo Ladigbolu at the Governor’s office on Wednesday in Osogbo.
According to him, the security situation in the entire region, which has been causing panic for potential visitors to the zone made the move a compulsory one for the leaders and they should be commended for it.
He added that he guarantees that Amotekun has come to stay and the entire zone will be properly secured henceforth.
His words, “I would like to commend the entire Yoruba nation for standing up in support of the establishment of Amotekun. The support created an incentive and encouragement for it to stay. I assure you that Amotekun has come to stay and the entire zone is secure.”
The forum’s Chairman, Arch Bishop Ladigbolu also hailed Oyetola, “We cannot forget to congratulate you and your brother governors on the successful establishment of Amotekun. This has rekindled our hope that the good old days are coming back. The good old days when the region can mobilise resources to take care of the people and the youth can organise themselves to engage in meaningful competition towards the protection of the region.
“So, we want to commend and thank you and other Southwest governors on this feat as we are assuring you to be part of foot soldiers for the development of our region and the country at large.”
