Oyo State Governor, Seyi Makinde, has nominated the Aare Onakakanfo of Yorubaland, Gani Adams, as the state’s ambassador for the Western Nigeria Security Network better known as Amotekun.
The governor also presented a brand new jack Pick-up Van to Adams as a pilot vehicle with three members of the security outfit as part of Adams’ security entourages, according to a statement from Kehinde Aderemi, a media aide to the Yoruba generalissimo.
Receiving the van at his Omole Phase 2 residence in Lagos, Adams described the gesture as commendable, stressing that the security of the state remains the topmost priority of every government.
He also applauded the governor’s courage in ensuring that the state is safe for residents.
Adams said, “The office of the Aareonakakanfo will continue to complement the efforts of the security outfit in reducing the spate of insecurity across the state.
“I want to appreciate our amiable governor for this worthy honour, and I hope that other governors in the region will replicate this gesture, particularly, at this time when we are faced with the various security challenges across the southwest,
