Garus Gololo: South-West’s Stand On Amotekun Could Cost Them 2023 Presidency by LaboPolitics: 8:47pm On Sep 08
A Chieftain of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Dr. Garus Gololo, has advised governors and leaders of South West, Nigeria, to tread cautiously, if their agitation for power shift in 2023 is anything to go by.

Speaking with journalists in Abuja on Thursday, Gololo said, the idea of running a full-fledged armed security outfit at the geopolitical zonal level and refusing to allow its integration into the planned Federal Government’s Community Policing program, could jeopardize the chances of the Yoruba people in clinching the presidency come 2023.

Southwest governors had last year, launched a seemingly community security movement across the 6 states of the region, codenamed ‘Amotekun’.

The Federal Government kicked against having such security network across the states and moved to proscribe it.

The governors, however, swiftly made the bill establishing ‘Amotekun’ passed through the Houses of Assembly of various states.

Having passed the bill and assented to by various governors, the security outfit was officially launched two weeks ago in Ondo State, after the first set of volunteers passed out from the training.

Speaking on a Television program on Tuesday, Senior Special Assistant to the President on Media, Mallam Garba Shehu, said ‘Amotekun’ cannot operate outside the structures laid down by the Nigeria Police authorities.

Governor Rotimi Akeredolu, while responding to Mallam Shehu’s statement, insisted the ‘Amotekun’ would not be subsumed by the Nigeria’s security authorities.

This statement was also corroborated by Governor Seyi Makinde of Oyo state, while addressing Local Government Council Chairmen, stressing that the Federal Government would not be allowed to control the ‘Amotekun’ structures.

But Gololo, while responding to questions, underscored the importance of having a community policing network, in the face of insecurity in the country.

“But saying a particular region wants to have its own security network outside the control of the Federal Government is a ridicule to the essence of national security.

“Nigeria is a sovereign state and since we still practice federalism, it is very imperative for the Federal Government to do all within her capacity to keep the nation as one.

“If the leaders of South West are serious about seeking power to return to the region in 2023, then ‘Amotekun’ is their least worries. They should allow the Nigeria’s security agency design the operational modules for ‘Amotekun’ as a community police.

“Except they are telling us that ‘Amotekun’ means different thing from what we know. There is no harm in allowing the Inspector-General of Police to supervise the activities of people who are trained to carry gun. We should work for the interest of one Nigeria, if they have the interest of this nation at heart and also seek to lead the country in 2023”, Gololo added.

Same thing applies when we tell ewedugerians like you that yoruba will never smell Aso rock till Igbos take their turn in the zonal arrangement.

You have lost 87% of every presidential election you've voted in since 1959 till date and you yorubas have never been united at the polls, always splitting your votes and dribbling yourselves with 'we don't put all our eggs in one basket' self-deceit, when we all know that yoruba problem is lack of unity which they deflect and project unto others to save face.


While yoruba muslims are singing soprano, yoru-christians are throwing shekere. No synchrony, no unity. grin

Tinubu's greatest adversaries are yorubas who are gathering to share his meat like they did to MKO and Awolowo. grin

Lol, you don't know history and that is sad.

Yoruba have been elected thrice through the ballot, a feat the Igbos have NEVER achieved.

Also, check every election since 1979, the Yorubas have ALWAYS given BLOC vote if the Presidential candidate is a Yoruba man.

Check 1979, 1983, 1993, 1999, and 2003 election results to validate my claim.

However the Igbos are confused entity that have consistently given the Fulanis more chance against their own because of blind loyalty to a party. You did that for Zik, Ojukwu, and etc.

The Yorubas only have divided vote when the presidential candidate is from another tribe. Check the election results!

Stop saying nonsense. Abiola was also elected president with vote cutting across both North and South except the Sad East.

Even if his election was annuled, it dosen't stop the fact that he was elected president in a free and fair election. That tested the Yoruba acceptance in the nation.

I dare you Igbos to contest against a Yoruba man in PDP and let's see your acceptance compared to the Yorubas.

Obasanjo was voted by Yoruba with bloc vote in 2003 too. You better go back to study history more omo yeebo.

Abiola never became president, so that election remains null and void officially. You are not talking to kids here.

Only one yoruba have ever been elected president and yorubas didn't contribute votes to elect him. OBJ was elected by the North and East in spite yorubas who voted against him. Shikena!
