Bayelsa State Governor Seriake Dickson insists Operation Amotekun has made the restructuring of the country inevitable.

The Federal Government has come under attack for declaring the security initiative of South-West governors to check criminal activities in their states illegal. And Dickson, who has thrown their weight behind Operation Amotekun, says the governors opted for the outfit because of “the politicisation and collapse of the centralised national security apparatus in the country”.

“The politicisation and overcentralisation of security without an effective funding mechanism and arrangements for professionalism has reduced Nigeria to an un-policed country,” the governor said in a statement by his Chief Press Secretary, Mr Fidelis Soriwei, on Monday.

He warned that if the country was not restructured, there might be nothing left for Nigerians to restructure when they were ready.

Dickson, who described “Amotekun as a component of the restructuring” which he had championed, said every South-South state had some form of internal security mechanism to collaborate with the law enforcement agencies.

According to him, his state has Bayelsa Volunteers, State Vigilante, Community Safety Corps and Water Water Security.

He said, “No governor from the South-South has made serious comments on the issues of restructuring, state police and true federalism

“I have taken the message for restructuring, true federalism and the need for state police everywhere, even to the doorstep of the President.”

Dickson added, “Amotekun is a clear issue of restructuring. It is like state and regional police that I have been calling for.”

Also, the Interfaith Dialogue Forum For Peace said Operation Amotekun would help to address the security challenges facing the South-West.

    Today, I went to the beach front with my children. I found a sea shell and gave it
    to my 4 year old daughter and said “You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear.” She put the shell to her ear
    and screamed. There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her ear.
    She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is completely off topic but I had to tell someone!
