No rest until we get acceptable law for Amotekun, say South West Houses of Assembly speakers
Speakers of the South-West Houses of Assembly have said that they will not rest until an acceptable law, which will give full legal backing to the security network, code-named “Operation Amotekun” is passed.
The Chairman, Conference of Speakers of South-West States, Bamudele Oleyelogun, disclosed at a meeting of the Speakers in Ibadan on Wednesday. Oleyelogun, who is also the Speaker of Ondo State House of Assembly, said the six Houses of Assembly in South-West would adopt a single and uniform legal document for Operation Amotekun.
He said that the uniformity of the bill would ensure a synergy of operation in terms of working relationship, intelligence sharing, training and others among the Amotekun corps across the six states for effective security operation and management.
The South-West Speakers also met with state attorneys-general on observations, suggestions and conflicting areas identified during the public hearings conducted by each state.
At the meeting, there were clause-by-clause deliberations of the various suggestions, observations and conflicting areas and points raised at the public hearing.
These were aimed at harmonising the different suggestions, observations and reservations, among others, into the proposed law.
Aside from attorneys-general, the meeting also had in attendance majority leaders, clerks of the six Houses of Assembly, Directors of Legal Departments and Chairmen, House Committees on Security, among other functionaries of the legislatures in the region.
