GOV. SEYI MAKINDE VISIT OBASANJO,, SAYS:MALAMI CAN’T JUST WAKE UP AND MAKE HIS OWN LAWS

Oyo State Governor, Engr. Seyi Makinde, has said the
Attorney-General of the Federation and Minister of Justice,
Abubakar Malami (SAN), lacks the power to declare the
South West security outfit, Operation Amotekun, as illegal.
Makinde said though the AGF may interpret and advise the
President if there are legal issues, he is not empowered to
make his own laws.
He spoke in Abeokuta, the Ogun State capital, during his
visit to a former president, Chief Olusegun Obasanjo, on
Wednesday.
The governor was accompanied by his Special Adviser on
Security Matters and former Lagos State Commissioner of
Police, Fatai Owoseni; the Chairman, Advisory Council,
Senator Hosea Agboola; and former Secretary to the Oyo
State Government, Chief Layiwola Olakojo, among other
aides.
Fielding questions from reporters, Makinde, who stated that
he was in Abeokuta to greet Obasanjo for the New Year,
frowned at Malami’s position on Operation Amotekun.
The governor insisted that the AGF does not have the
powers to label the regional security outfit illegal.
He, however, stated that Malami had yet to officially
communicate to him on the matter.
