National leader of the All Progressives Congress Bola Ahmed Tinubu has been given 24 hours to reveal his position on the Western Nigeria Security Network codenamed ‘Operation Amotekun’.
The ultimatum was issued by the Save Lagos group.
According to Vanguard, Tinubu has remained silent on Amotekun since its launch.
This is said to have attracted many people who see him as one of the top leaders in the Southwest.
Recall that the Attorney-General of the Federation, Abubakar Malami, recentlydeclared the o utfit as illegal.
The convener, Save Lagos Group, Adeniyi Sulaiman, said the group was giving Tinubu 24 hours to speak up.
He urged Tinubu to be courageous regardless of his rumoured Presidential ambition.
The group also dismissed threats by northern groups like the Miyetti Allah Kautal over Amotekun
Recall that Legit.ng reported that Miyetti Allah said the Amotekun security initiative may cost the southwest the 2023 presidency.
This was disclosed by the national secretary of the Miyetti Allah Kautal, Alhassan Saleh.
Saleh said southwest governors must withdraw support for the security outfit. He said this is will enable the region stand a chance of taking a shot at the presidency come 2023.
Going further, he expressed disappointment in the southwest intelligentsia for supporting the outfit.
“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."
