While describing Amotekun as critical to the development agenda of his administration, Governor Oyetola said the initiative is in the best interest of the future of the people and for a sustainable development hence the need for all and sundry to own the initiative and nurture it.

" As a government, we have always believed that our people are the most precious resources. consequently, in the spirit of democracy and in the firm belief that our collective reasoning will deliver the best way to secure ourselves and drive us to own our game, we are soliciting inputs from you all on how best to secure our state and our people", Mr Oyetola added.
