The South-West chapter of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has called on Governors of the six States in the geopolitical zone to expedite action on the Western Nigeria Security Network codenamed ‘Amotekun’ by recruiting and deploying personnel to the nooks and crannies of the South-West region.
The Party also lamented the inability of the President Muhammadu Buhari Government to curtail the growing insecurity in the country, describing it as weak and effeminate in preventing insecurity and bringing to justice rampaging killer-herdsmen attacking people across the country.
The Party made these positions in a statement signed on Monday, February 3, 2020, by its Zonal Publicity Secretary, Mr Ayo Fadaka, commending Governors Rotimi Akeredolu (Ondo); Kayode Fayemi (Ekiti); Gboyega Oyetola (Osun); Seyi Makinde (Oyo); Babajide Sanwo-Olu (Lagos) and Dapo Abiodun (Ogun) for inaugurating the Security Outfit.
The PDP, however, encouraged the Governors to take swift actions on the security and safety of the region, noting that the encouragement became imperative due to the fact that “the nation today totters on the fringes of a combustion that poses dire consequences to Nigeria and its people.”
According to the statement, the Presidency has remained weak and effeminate in preventing danger in the land, a situation which it said was even attested to by the Senate last week.
The PDP went ahead to urge the six Governors of the South-West geopolitical zone to expedite actions on measures that will rid their communities of elements, who pose threats to the safety and security of the people of the South-West.
