The secretary-general of the socio-political organization Afenifere, Chief Sola Ebiseni says it is the responsibility of the nation, represented by the government to secure the lives and property of the citizens, but the government has failed in that regard.
Speaking on Crest Breakfast Show, Chief Ebiseni who said states have the ability to defend themselves if given the power, commended the south-west governors forum for the creation of the Amotekun security network.
He added that the effectiveness and funding capacity of state policing is an important issue that must be included in the calls and agitation for restructuring of the entire federation.
Chief Ebiseni opined that the federal government should not be the one in charge of all the resources and revenue generated in the states, but should rather grant autonomy of resources to states and local governments in the country.
