Osun Assembly Acknowledges Receipt of Amotekun Bill

The Osun State House of Assembly has received a draft bill on Amotekun, a regional security initiative of the Southwest Governors following the endorsement of the proposed bill by the State Executive Council led by Governor Gboyega Oyetola.

The Speaker, Mr. Timothy Owoeye through his Press Secretary, Mr. Kunle Alabi confirmed the receipt of the bill, and that it was now awaiting further consideration and approval of the lawmakers.

Osun State Governor Gboyega Oyetola had on Thursday convened an emergency State Executive Council meeting to solely deliberate and endorse the draft bill seeking the creation of Amotekun, a joint security initiative of the Southwest Governors aimed at addressing the growing spate of insecurity in the region.

The Assembly in the coming days will be busy with the consideration of the bill on Amotekun just like its counterparts in Oyo, Ondo and other Southwest states with a view to addressing issues of legality impeding the establishment of the regional security outfit.
