Amotekun Will Lead To a Declaration Of Oduduwa Republic says, Balarabe Musa
Old Kaduna State former Governor, Balarabe Musa, said the newly security set up by the South West Governor known as “Amotekun” will lead to a declaration of Oduduwa Republic.
Balarabe made this statement in an interview with the Sun, The former Governor said that the set up of Amotekun is faulty because it was not back by law in the constitution.
“First of all, taking into account what happened in the history of Nigeria, this Amotekun will lead to a declaration of Oduduwa Republic.
“Look at the composition of those who constitute the organization in addition to the six states governors.
“There is also the OPC, Afenifere, and others. So the fear is quite obvious. And this is in spite of the fact that this government is incompetent.
“Definitely, this government is incompetent. And it is because of the incompetence of this government that this problem has arisen. But let us also not forget that this Federal Government is an alliance between the North and the Southwest.
“So, why should this happen? Any correction in the set up of the country is possible if this alliance, which controls the government in the country can do its work.
He further added, “Oh yes! It is illegal because it contravenes the provisions of the law in the constitution.
“And unfortunately for them in spite of the intellectual aura of the elite class in the Southwest, they couldn’t be articulate because they could have been articulate like the Kano State did in the case of Hisbah.
“They went through the State House of Assembly. Now, if this Amotekun had been taken through the six-state Houses of Assembly before it was formed you could say they have a case in the sense that the state Houses of Assembly are in charge of lawmaking.
“Secondly, the governor of each state is the chief security officer of his state. So, if you combine this two and enact a law allowing for the formation of Amotekun, they would have gotten it right.
“But in spite of their articulation, they failed to do so, which means it must be deliberate that what they are concerned exactly is an Oduduwa State, he said.
