Ooni of Ife, Oba Adeyeye Ogunwusi and the Aareonakakanfo of Yorubaland, Iba Gani Adams, have thrown their weights behind the immediate legislation of Operation Amotekun.
Legit.ng reports that the duo spoke at the 2020 edition of the Oodua festival in Ile-Ife, Osun state.
The foremost monarch, however, admonished southwest legislatures in their respective states to fast track the process that would make Amotekun lawful and achievable.
"In Yoruba land and across the southwest, things have changed with the introduction of Amotekun. I happy for the southwest governors, and this victory actually reflect the fact that there is little we can achieve without unity, that is why I am appealing to all traditional rulers to work in ensuring that Amotekun come to stay," Adeyeye said
The Aare Onakakanfo of Yorubaland, Iba Gani Adams, also reiterated the need to legalise the new initiative, stressing that Nigerians abroad can now bring investors that can help develop the country.
The guest lecturer, Abiodun Agboola from Obafemi Awolowo University (OAU) in his remarks, said the Yoruba culture is like a nexus that can lead the race to greatness. He said the victory achieved through Amotekun showcases the beauty of having all of us speak in one voice.
Meanwhile, Legit.ng had previously reported that a security body in the design of Amotekun in the southwest is set to be inaugurated in the southeast.
