The Lawmaker representing Ose/Owo Federal Constituency in the House of Representatives, Hon. Timehin Adelegbe has again expressed his confidence in the leadership style, courage, boldness and fearlessness of Ondo State Governor Arakunrin Oluwarotimi Akeredolu, SAN.
This was sequel to the revocation of statement credited to the Attorney General of the Federation and Minister for Justice Abubakar Malami, ascribing the newly established security outfit codenamed “Amotekun” by the Southwest Governors as illegal.
He said this has shown that Akeredolu who has been in the forefront of the Amotekun course and the Chairman of South West Governors Forum, is a typical courageous yoruba man, fearless and undaunted to the core which epitomise his maverick leadership qualities.
Adelegbe, also noted that nothing has kept our people united, like this, speaking unanimously and agitating a common front, regardless and irrespective of our political divides, yet acting as one. He reflected on all of the uniqueness of our thoughts, boldness and leadership demonstrated since the launch of Operation Amotekun and submitted that beyond his re-election into office, the Governor has launched himself into the minds of many Nigerians. Therefore, the lawmaker is proud and fortunate to have Arakunrin Oluwarotimi Akeredolu as a member of his Constituency
The revocation of Malami’s statement on the illegality of the Operation Amotekun is a very litmus test of Mr Governor’s versatility and candour not just as a legal luminary in good standing, but as a Senior Advocate of Nigeria of decades with diverse experiences. Similarly, as a former National President, Nigerian Bar Association with track records, there is no legal interpretation or legal fireworks that can in anyway intimidate or harass him without dissecting its anatomical makeup.
However, the Operation Amotekun security initiative has over the few weeks received an overwhelming support devoid of political and religious sentiments. Only a leader as Governor Akeredolu with unquenchable foresight could achieve this feat seamlessly as well as other South Western Governors which he chaired their forum.
Adelegbe with much excitement said “as member House of Representatives from Ose/Owo Federal Constituency, I convey to you the goodwill message of my people with a renewed hope and assurance that with you, they are in safe hands and they are not ready to gamble with such a scarcely opportunity. We have done it before and poised to doing it again. As you have not only shown commitment to protecting the interest, lives and properties in Ondo state and the South/West in general but demonstrated it, as we can see in the Amotekun initiative”
The Federal Lawmaker, noted that Arakunrin Oluwarotimi Akeredolu has simply calved a nitch for himself as “a hero of the Yoruba nation” and history has reserved a very good and comfortable place for him.
