Amotekun: Osinbajo, South-west Govs, Security Officials May Meet This Week by ojokolax: 11:18am On Jan 22, 2020
VP not against initiative – Source

BARRING any last-minute development, a tripartite meeting involving Vice-President Yemi Osinbajo, governors from the six states in the South-West and top security chiefs may hold this week, to resolve perceived grey areas in the formation of the security outfit, Amotekun, in Yorubaland.
The meeting is believed to be at the instance of President Muhammadu Buhari, with the primary goal of evolving a template that suits all concerned interests within the nation’s legal framework.

According to feelers, the Presidency was keen on having a template that aligns with the Federal Government’s initiative of community policing, as part of measures aimed at boosting the security of lives and property across the country.

This urge was said to have informed the move by the Presidency to bring the South-West governors together in a meeting with relevant Federal Government officials to come up with a workable solution to the misconception about Amotekun in certain quarters.
There were reports at press time on Monday that President Buhari had asked Vice-President Osinbajo to meet this week with the governors and the top security officials of the Federal Government to develop a model that brings Amotekun under a legal framework.

Some analysts told the Nigerian Tribune last night that the success of the latest effort by the government could, in one stroke, address security concerns in the South-West, as well as allay the fears of those who wanted such a security arrangement to operate within the limits of the Nigerian constitution.
One of the sources, which confirmed the planned meeting, said: “It appears that another key purpose of the meeting to be presided over by the VP later this week in Abuja will be to have Amotekun operate effectively in the local communities, including leveraging the active support of the traditional institutions.”
The source said: “What is happening now is that the president wants the vice president, a renowned advocate for community policing models and state police, to take another look at the Amotekun initiative alongside the six governors with a view to resolving all the grey areas and coming up with a model that suits all concerned interests.

“The president’s choice of the vice-president to oversee the review of the Amotekun structure is said to reflect Professor Osinbajo’s perceived support of the original idea that was later developed by the South-West governors into the Amotekun outfit.
“It is widely believed that Professor Osinbajo is a staunch advocate of state policing and the Buhari presidency has already given directives that the Nigeria Police embark on the ongoing implementation of the Community Policing model.

“This is why Osinbajo’s support for the Amotekun initiative is not a surprise to close watchers of government business and in government circles.”
The source explained that the president was desirous of all the issues pertaining to the regional security outfit were carefully addressed and amicably resolved, especially against the backdrop of misrepresentations by a few individuals.
According to the source, “because President Buhari is concerned that the matter be managed carefully in a way that addresses security fears that necessitated the Amotekun initiative in the first, instance while carrying along Federal Government’s security agencies, the vice president is said to be working out a template that will bring concerned federal agencies and the South-West states together and propose a way to keep the initiative and secure the support and understanding of the Federal Government.”

There were said to be concerns in official circles that if the Amotekun initiative was not properly managed, it could generate regional reactions capable of undermining other Federal Government agencies and degenerate into a needless political crisis.
It was, however, learned that while the government “wants to ensure that such initiatives like Amotekun are within the constitutional framework,” the authorities did not “want to be seen as sabotaging the efforts of state governments to provide supplemental security efforts working with the existing security agencies in the land.”

Osibanjo will tell them to back off from Amotekun

Yoruba: We want Amotekun

FG: Amotekun will not be allowed

Yoruba: It's Malam that said that nonsense and not buhari because Buhari knows he has a strong support in the SW so he will never try to break our heart


Me: Abeg who is Malami working for? Which party is Malami working under and which party is supporting the proscription of Amotekun.

Yorubas don't know what they want and their noise will end here because Amotekun is DOA. They should continue supporting their Apc oppressors

First, it is not so hard to spell OSINBAJO. Even the white man gets it right.
Besides you do not speak on behalf of any credible group. Well you are allowed to daydream at least.

Let it be an open meeting. SWners are the biggest stakeholders of this project so we need to know what Osinbajo has come to tell the Governors. So we can deal with him if he tries to sabotage the project.

I don't know why Osinbajo must join them he is never around when Buhari is doing photoshoot with his security teams.
Re: Amotekun: Osinbajo, South-west Govs, Security Officials May Meet This Week by ojokolax: 1:43pm On Jan 22, 2020
Clearly your capacity for learning is as dark as your name. How you happen to be able to see the future is not the cause for alarm but rather your compulsive attitude to speak evil of all activities of VP Osinbajo. Probably the bias is because a certain group wanted to forcefully enlist members into its army to go against the laws of the land and now you can't seem to see past your nose that there are other means to achieve things without contravening the law. We await the meeting with the conviction that Osinbajo's continued support for community policing would bring about speedy inclusion of Amotekun into the legal framework

Yet if he wasn't there, you'd be the first person lampooning him for not being there. Sit Down

GloBaby, we know you have never dealt with anything or anyone outside of social media, so calm down ko farabale. All Six governors and the security chiefs will be discussing the matter with the Chief supporter of Community Policing so you know exactly his stance a priori
