“In particular, fears and apprehension have been expressed in many quarters that his role in the formation of Amotekun could affect his second term chances.
“This is far from the truth because Governor Akeredolu is on the path of national cohesion through collaborative internal security.
“The decision taken in respect of Amotekun was in the interest of the entire country and not the South-West alone.
“The political insinuations and blackmail are the required ingredients needed to make it credible. But such will not discourage the governor in any manner.”
