S’West Houses of Assembly to pass Operation Amotekun Bill
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.”
