- Jigawa state governor, Abubakar Badaru, has endorsed Amotekun
- The governor said the controversy about the new security outfit was needless
- Badaru also charged other states of the federation to replicate Amotekun in their domains
Barely one week after the federal government and the southwest governors reached agreement on the establishment of Operation Amotekun, the new security outfit has got more support.
The Nation reports that in his recommendation, Jigawa state governor, Abubakar Badaru, said states should adopt a security system that serves them best.
Legit.ng gathered that he told reporters in Abuja that there was no need for the controversy surrounding Amotekun.
The Senate deputy minority leader, Senator Emmanuel Bwacha, who represents Taraba South senatorial district, also backed Operation Amotekun, advising other zones to borrow a leaf from the southwest.
Bwacha spoke in Jalingo on the sideline of a thanksgiving service in honour of Bishop Dan Kashibo of the Holiness Revival Movement, who reunited with his wife after a 37 years break-up.
Pastor Tunde Bakare of the Latter Rain Assembly also said the controversy generated by Operation Amotekun has reinforced the need for true federalism.
Speaking in Lagos on the theme, No amount of ringworm medicine can cure leprosy, he said the proponents of Amotekun had genuine reasons to set it up.
He said that the contentious issues revealed the flaws in the constitution, noting that there is a need to revisit the national foundation, renegotiate in order to have a perfect union.
Meanwhile, Legit.ng had previously reported that the formation of Operation Amotekun was not to secede from Nigeria as being speculated among Nigerians.
In related development, it was reported that the northern region might come up with its own version of Amotekun, a creation of governors in the south west for the protection of the people.
The security outfit may be code-named, 'Operation Shege ka Fasa'.
This was revealed by the Coalition of Northern Groups (CNG) currently asking the governors in the region to consider as it announced its support for the south west's structure.
