Amotekun: Adams speaks on security outfit, Osinbajo, Buhari’s role

A former United States, US, leader of Pro National Conference Organisations, PRONACO, Dr. Baba Adam, has lauded Vice President Yemi Osinbajo for mediating over the controversy generated by the creation of Southwest security outfit, Amotekun.

Osinbajo had recently met with South West Governors, the Attorney General of the Federation and the Inspector General of Police over the establishment of Amotekun.

At the meeting, the Federal Government agreed to set up a legal framework to legalise the establishment of the regional security outfit.

However, Adams commended President Muhammadu Buhari for delegating Osinbajo to mediate in the dialogue.

In a letter to President Buhari, the former chairman of Action Congress of Nigeria (ACN) also commended the Buhari administration for pushing for community policing as a panacea to solving security problems in Nigeria.

Adams, who hails from Borno State said the timely negotiations and peaceful deliberation that led to an agreement between the Federal Government and the Southwest governors saved Nigeria from chaos.

The letter reads: “Thank you for bestowing trust in Vice President Yemi Osinbajo, SAN to provide the leadership on resolving the highly sensitive Amotekun issue.

“As in all other assignments, Prof Osinbajo has done an outstanding job again and has saved the nation from falling into unnecessary conflict and calamity of dis-unity.”

He said it was worthy of note that most of the governors pushing for Amotekun are All Progressives Congress (APC) chieftains.

“Also as you know the majority of the governors advocating for this initiative are from the APC, this include key leaders such as Governor Dr. Fayemi, who is also chairman of the Nigerian Governors Forum; Governor Akeredolu and furthermore even Asiwaju Tinubu has supported this initiative.”

Commending Buhari for the confidence he has in Osinbajo, Adams said: “This is the first salvo and we highly recommend that you further empower or delegate the VP to resolve this issue as not only in the South West but the rest of the nation – as APC states such as Nasarawa have already expressed interest in implementing community policing, LGA and state policing.”
