Alalade commends South-West governors on job creation, security


An elder statesman in Ekiti State Chief Ogunjimi Alalade has commended the governors of the South West and state house of assemblies and other key players for giving speedy legal backing to its security outfit Amotekun, saying it has resulted in jobs creation and improved insecurity in the geopolitical zone.

According to him, Amotekun will improve awareness and vigilance among the people of the South West and curb the onslaught of kidnappings, attacks and several insecurities rampaging the whole South West.

Alalade also called for support from the DSS, Police, local security forces such as the vigilantes’ traditional hunters and others, to improve security in the zone. He applauded the Inspector General of Police Mohammed Adamu for his cooperation.

He said the people of Ekiti State and South-West must be “ready to defend their families, communities, farmlands, villages, churches, mosques and shrines from attacks by invaders.”

Alalade in a statement also wished all Muslims home and abroad a blissful and lasting Eid-el-Kabir.

According to him, Islam is a religion of peace that upholds the values of tolerance and mutual coexistence without a place for hatred and violence.

He further said the greatest commitment to Islam is for Muslims to put its good virtues into practice, and by making justice and righteousness the guiding principle of their everyday life.

Alalade further urged Islamic faithful to be “Mirror through which others see the good virtues of the Muslim faith.”

He commended President Muhammadu Buhari for “his leadership stride in the country in this present period.”
