The Chairman of the South West Group of Online Publishers (SWEGOP), Mr. Olayinka Agooro has charged journalists in the country to always remind the President Muhammadu Buhari-led administration to overhaul the country’s security architecture.
The chairman made the call for a better security architecture in the country during the unification luncheon of SWEGOP held on Friday, at Development Support Centre (DSC), Iyaganku Quarter, Ibadan, Oyo State.
According to the chairman, the need to overhaul the country’s architecture is based on the level of insecurity in the country.
Agboola said: “We must talk about it every time, we should go to our different Houses of Assembly to lobby our lawmakers there to discuss it and offer practicable solutions. Aboaraeni niaabo ilu.
“We cannot say Kaduna is far, or Borno State is not near and thus, pretend not to be concerned. Nobody knows whose turn it will be tomorrow. Let us take the issue of insecurity more seriously. The assignment is not only for the government, we must be on our guard at all times.”
The SWEGOP Chairman also congratulated the governors of the six South-West states on the bold move to establish the Western Nigeria Security Network codenamed Amotekun Corps.
He, however, implored them to make haste while the sun is still shining, noting that it is taking too long for them to activate the project.
“It is not rocket science. They should match action with words. Procrastination can dampen the spirit of our people. Our governors need to move faster,” Agboola said.
