The Miyetti Allah Kautal Hore cattle breeders association has warned Southwest governors to withdraw their support for Western Nigeria Security outfit, codenamed ‘Operation Amotekun’, adding that their continued support for the security outfit may hurt the Southwest’s chances of getting the Presidency in 2023.

This was disclosed by the National Secretary of the group, Alhassan Saleh, during an interview with The Punch, noting that they were disappointed in the South-West intelligentsia for supporting the outfit.

He said:

Quote
“This Amotekun scheme is political and is not the solution to the problem of insecurity. What the South-West governors should have done is to continue to push for state police. Where did they expect to get the funding from at a time some of them are struggling to pay salaries?

“It is best they give up on this idea because it may affect the chances of the South-West to produce the President in 2023. The thinking is that if the South-West, a major stakeholder in this government, can be toying with this idea now, they may do worse when they get to power.”

Saleh also hailed the Attorney-General of the Federation, Abubakar Malami, SAN, for describing Amotekun as an illegal outfit.

He however said the AGF ought to have spoken long ago instead of waiting for things to have reached an advanced stage.

“We are in agreement with the AGF that Amotekun is illegal. In fact, we are unhappy that it took the AGF this long to react,”
he said.

THE SOUTH-WEST HAS TO CHOOSE BETWEEN AMOTEKUN AND 2023 PRESIDENTIAL TICKET,  THE NORTH SAID.
   THE SOUTH-WEST IS IN THE POCKET OF THE NORTHERNERS .
     WILL THE SOUTH-WEST DROP THE AMOTEKUN, OR GO AHEAD WITH THE PLAN?
