BREAKING: Ogun Assembly passes Amotekun bill
The Ogun State House of Assembly, on Tuesday, passed the State Security Network Agency and Amotekun Corps bill into law, to address the challenge of insecurity in the State.
This is coming barely 19 days after it received the bill from the executive arm.
The bill titled: “HB No 35/OG/2020- “A Bill for a law to establish the Ogun State Security Network Agency and Amotekun Corps to Assist in Maintaining Law and Order in the State and Connected Purposes” was passed during a plenary presided over by the Speaker, Olakunle Oluomo, following the presentation of report of the Special Ad-hoc Committee on Security and Strategy by the Majority Leader, Yusuf Sherif.
Sherif thereafter moved the motion for the adoption of the report which was seconded by Hon Musefiu Lamidi and supported by the Whole House through a voice vote after which the bill was later read and adopted Clause- by–Clause by the Committee of the whole House.
The motion for the third reading of the bill was later moved by the Majority Leader, seconded by Hon Olusola Adams, while the Acting Clerk of the Assembly, Deji Adeyemo, did the third reading of the bill.
Oluomo, thereafter, directed that the clean copy of the bill be forwarded to the governor, Prince Dapo Abiodun, for his assent.
