Ekiti Formerly Launches Amotekun Corps October 19

Ekiti Formerly Launches Amotekun Corps October 19 | Lanre News

The Ekiti State Government has disclosed it would formally launch the South West Security Initiative tagged “Amotekun” on October 19. 

This was as the state government declared its intention to celebrate the two years anniversary of Fayemi-led administration for two weeks. 

Disclosing this in a press conference, the State’s Commissioner for Information and Values Orientation, Hon Akinbowale Omole, said the launch during the period of the celebration will signify Fayemi-led government’s commitment to the security of life, property and investment.

Omole noted that the outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic earlier in the year, compelled the government to prioritise welfare of the people, especially workers, over capital projects, adding, however, that all projects embarked upon by the administration would be completed within the life of the administration.

He said: “When COVID-19 came, we prioritise our targets; we have not abandoned any project. All our projects have delivery dates.

“We are taking the security of our people more seriously and I want to tell you that Amotekun will be launched on October 19 to protect our people and ensure that they sleep with their two eyes closed.”
