Governor Seyi Makinde of Oyo State yesterday called on the Federal Government to upgrade the capacity of Amotekun personnel in the South West to provide better security coverage for the people of the region.

The governor made the call in Ibadan, the state capital, while presenting his speech at the 2021 Law Week of the Ibadan branch FGof the Nigerian Bar Association (NBA) held at the Afe Babalola Bar Centre, Iyaganku, Ibadan.

In his address, Makinde, who was represented by the Attorney General and Commissioner for Justice, Prof. Oyewo Oyelowo, said:
“The issue of security is so paramount to the governors of the South West and this led to the inauguration of the Western Nigerian Security Network and particularly the state creation of Amotekun in each of the five western states, even though

In Lagos it is known as Neighbourhood Watch. “Moreover, the states have been challenged with playing role of providing security under the present constitutional arrangement because of the centralisation of the security powers in the national government. “Agreed, it is believed that law can play a role particularly in looking at the fundamental documents that is the

constitution that places this power in the central government by looking at the reality of the necessity for state to play a role in allowing the state executive to be not only chief executive, but also chief security provider in each of their states.”
