Dr. Agbakoba of OAL was a guest lecturer at the 16th Chief Gani Fawehinmi (SAN) Annual Lecture/Symposium (Fawehinmiism) organised by Nigerian Bar Association (NBA) Ikeja Branch held at Oranmiyan Hall, Airport Hotel, Ikeja, yesterday.
Dr. Agbakoba spoke extensively on “Federalism and Judiciary in NIgeria”.
Dr. Agbakoba said the governors of the south west, Nigeria have done no wrong with the formation of Amotekun corps. He added that governors do not have to consult with the Attorney General of the Federation before taking security measures to protect their states.
He added: “what the governors are doing is not policing but security measure.
OA said “The Inspector General of Police was involved when they started but he doesn’t know what happened and why he backed out. May be he had a rethink”.
He said the constitution being operated in the country gave the governors wide and enormous powers which they have not exhausted. There is enough space in the constitution for everybody to advance.
