Governor of Sokoto State, Aminu Tambuwal, who’s also a presidential aspirant on the platform of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), has made a promise that he will expand the South-West Regional Security Network popularly called Amotekun if he becomes president in 2023.

While meeting with the delegates of PDP in Osun and Ogun states, in separate meetings, Tambuwal acknowledged the need to strengthen the country, as a means of restructuring the country.

While speaking to the party’s delegates at the party’s secretariat in Osogbo, Osun State capital, Tambuwal said insecurity is a serious issue in the country at present and he therefore plans to strengthen the South-West Security Network as possible adoption as state police when he emerges the president.

He said, ” Insecurity is a major issue across the country and for the south-west and as part of my believe in restructuring, I will strengthen Amotekun and possibly adopt it as a state police for the region.”

Speaking on restructuring, the governor said, “Restructuring differs across the regions but we must come forward and argue it. I present my fact, you present yours and we find a common ground to achieve it. Devolution of power to states is a must if we must progress in Nigeria.”

The governor, later moved to the residence of Senator Demola Adeleke, to felicitate him on his affirmation by the court in Osogbo as the valid flagbearer of the PDP for the July 16 governorship election.

While speaking to Ogun state delegates, the governor said “Honourable Ladi Adebutu is here and he can confirm that conducive business environment is what business men needs. This I know and I will ensure I provide for proper expansion of industrialisation in Ogun state. Of course like I said in Osun, State police is a must. We must give more powers to the states if we must develop as a nation.”

“We must circumspect in electing who becomes our flag-bearer. We cannot afford to experiment again. We need a president who can engage his peers in international politics and with the right network. We need a president who has the right temperament, capacity, competence and if you look at all of these factors, i check the box.

“I’m well qualified to lead Nigeria. With my background as a lawyer and a life bencher, 12 years legislative experience and 7 years as governor of Sokoto state, I know what the issues are and i will assemble the best team across the length and breathe of our Nation.”
