Akeredolu Approves 500 Fresh Amotekun Recruits, Says Ondo Will Be Safest in S’West
Ondo State Governor, Oluwarotimi Akeredolu, has inaugurated 500 fresh Amotekun intakes for batch B just as he said crime is a local issue that should be addressed with a “large dose of home-grown content”.
The Governor noted that the Amotekun Security Corps initiative is a baby of necessity conceived as a home-grown approach to solving the plethora of security challenges that have put the people on the edge.
Governor Akeredolu spoke on Tuesday at the passing-out ceremony for the newly recruited Amotekun Corps officers held at the Gani Fawehinmi Freedom Arcade, Igbatoro Road, Akure, the state capital.
The event was part of the activities marking the first 100 days of Akeredolu’s second term in office.
The governor also commissioned 20 new patrol vehicles to boost the operations of the state security network.
He unveiled the Roadmap to Internal and Border Security in Ondo State, assuring that, “the state shall become the safest and most secured in the country if the strategies contained in the roadmap are religiously implemented.”
He said Amotekun’s impact had been remarkable, adding that the security outfit had also given the people of the state hope in the management of security, despite that it came into being just a little over a year ago.
