Amotekun needs modern equipment to tackle insecurity — APC

Must Read

A chieftain of the All Progressives Congress in Ondo State, Mr Morayo Lebi, has called on the governors in the South-West to equip the South-West Security Network Agencies, also known as Amotekun, with modern equipment to fight insecurity in the region.

The spate of insecurity in the southwest is becoming worrisome as two monarchs were killed in Ekiti State while no fewer than 25 school children and four staff members were abducted by some suspected gunmen in the Emure community in Ekiti State.

Though the victims have been released, Lebi pointed out that security outfits such as Amotekun and others should be equipped with modern weapons to stop the menace.

The legal practitioner who is also a governorship aspirant of the APC, stated this in Akure the state capital, on Tuesday.

He said, “Criminals cannot be carrying AK-47s when our security personnel are still going about with old and empty rifles.”

According to him, insecurity was a vice borne out of joblessness among the youths which can be curbed by providing jobs and necessary skills for them, urging the governors in the region to ensure the security of lives and properties is guaranteed.

Speaking on his mission for the state, he said his aspiration to become governor was borne out of his desire to contribute to the growth and overall development of the state.

He said, “I want to harness the state’s human and material resources toward making it the best-administered state in Nigeria and a place of pride. If allowed to be the Governor of Ondo State, I can start to redirect the development of the state.

“My desire to become the governor is to contribute towards the growth, welfare and overall development of my state whose vast resources haven’t been harnessed for the benefit of her citizens.

“Ondo State is a state graciously loved by God. If we look at the resources available to us, we should be leading and becoming a model state; a shining example to another state in Nigeria.”
