Posted by on January 12, 2020 — Drop A Comment


The Houses of Assembly in the six South-West states  have begun the process of passing the bill  establishing the Western Nigeria Security Network, codenamed Operation Amotekun.

The Speaker of the Ogun State House of Assembly, Olakunle Oluomo, said this on Saturday  while reacting to the question on the readiness of the  Houses of  Assembly to pass a bill that would  give the  outfit of legal backing.

Oluomo  said the bill would be passed simultaneously by  the six  Houses of Assembly.

According to him, the Majority Leaders in the Houses of Assembly have been saddled with the task of coming up with a  bill on  Operation Amotekun.

He said, “The Development Agenda for Western Nigeria, known as DAWN Commission,  is to come up with a unique draft bill that will be passed simultaneously by all Houses of Assembly in  the South-West.

“Similarly,  the  South-West Legislative Reform Committee made up of   our Majority Leaders are also working on the bill for Security, Economic and Infrastructural joint projects  by South-West states.”

When asked whether the process of passing the bill on the outfit had commenced, Oluomo answered in the affirmative.

Also, the Oyo State Head of Special Duties, Adetayo Adeleke, said the state was pushing for a bill that would give Operation Amotekun  legal backing.

Adeleke said, “We are at the last stage of the process. Once that is done, very soon, within the first quarter of this year, I think Amotekun should be properly operational.

“When it would be pushed to the House of Assembly depends on the CAC registration. Right now, they are operating on executive mandate. I am sure that should be possible as well in this first quarter.”
