The Oyo State Security Network Agency and Amotekun Corps failed woefully to copy the Nigeria Security Agencies in her professionalism but ever ready to go by the way of its unconstitutional underground recruitment exercise, as the Oyo State Security Network Agency and Amotekun Corps secretly recruit batch C (AMOC) who are just recruited to bribe and silence some people that can help the Oyo State Amotekun operatives in cater for the yearning for professionalism. Based on the overt and covert attitude of the Oyo State Amotekun management team since 2020, their disposition toward professional administration in the agency potray most of them, if not all, as people Yoruba describe as he who flourish in disorderliness (arije ninu mondaru).
All the Oyo State Amotekun operatives are yearning for better working condition and the educated among them know that professionalism will bring better working condition but all of them dare not propose or make it known, this is as result of their slave master Col (rtd) Olayinka the Amotekun Corps commandant who has in several occasions engaged most of these operatives in secret oath taking apart from the one forced on all operatives in June 2022 that nobody should reveal anything that they see.
Segun Akinlabi the egalitarian blogger try and be precise in your details given, you talk about the Oyo State Security Network Agency and Amotekun Corps being professional, try and expatiate on any development why you consider the administration and work of Oyo State Security Network Agency and Amotekun Corps as professional. I wonder why you should be ignorantly defending the slave master who has used and dump elite/educated like you. He even conspired with other management team to rubbish and finally relegates some of them. Please Mr Segun Akinlabi the egalitarian blogger, as a coercing defendant of Col. Olayinka Olayanju, and as one of Oyo state Amotekun operative, you are not please with working conditions you find yourself (suffering and smiling), but you have no choice than to defend him.
Here are the prerequisite for the professional practice, which I Segun Adebowale is requesting from the Oyo State government, Oyo state Amotekun board of governance and the management of Oyo state Security Network Agency and Amotekun Corps. All these articles of Segun Adebowale on the Oyo State Security Network Agency and Amotekun Corps is not negative perception nor to discredit the provision of motorcycles and vehicles for the use of Oyo State local government Amotekun operatives by his Excellency engineer Seyi Makinde as truly pointed out by Segun Akinlabi
In total and details reference to the Oyo State Security Network Agency law 2020 let me establish the professional practice of the Oyo State Security Network Agency and Amotekun Corps that is expected from the Oyo State government and the Oyo State Amotekun Board of governance. I Segun Adebowale wish and humbly reiterating that the Oyo State Security Network Agency and Amotekun Corps administration is devoid of professionalism in all ramifications.
In the first instance, the Oyo State governor and his led government in 2020 considered the establishment of Oyo State Security Network Agency and Amotekun Corps imperative in line with other South West states, so also establishing bill was acted upon by the Oyo State House of Assembly, and the bill eventually become law, signed by the founding father Engineer Seyi Makinde. As part of professional practice, establishing law is required which must be followed in section by section so as to achieve good administration, but the Oyo State Security Network Agency and Amotekun law 2020 is not follow by the Oyo State Amotekun commandant and the management team.
Should this lawless administration be refered to as professional administration?
As comprehensive as the Oyo State Security Network Agency law 2020 is, here are the professional practices embedded in the law.
In part ll of the Oyo State Security Network Agency and Amotekun law 2020: ESTABLISHMENT, FUNCTIONS AND POWERS OF THE AGENCY AND BOARD, here there is good intent of professionalism but was truncated by the Oyo State Amotekun administrators.
Likewise, in section (4) of the Oyo State Security Network Agency law 2020 the departments of the Agency shall comprise of the following for effective and professional administration
(i) Administration and Supplies;
(ii) Legal Services;
(iii) Operation and Monitoring;
(iv) Finance and Accounts;
(v) Research, Planning and Statistics; and
(vi) any other department as may be created by the Agency through its regulation.
As at now that the Agency is 3years and some days none of the department above is functioning in line with professional practice, not to talk of implementing section 4 (vi) recommending additional department (s) that can bring about professional practice.
Also, in section (5) which contains the objectives of the Agency and section (6) the functions of the Agency are highly structured in the Oyo State Security Network Agency and Amotekun law 2020 to professionally encompass professionalism in Oyo State Security Network Agency and Amotekun Corps administration. But all these sections and others have been wasted away since 2020 by the administrators of Oyo State Security Network Agency and Amotekun Corps.
More so, it is imperative in professional practice to set standards or qualifications for appointment and recruitment. The Oyo State Security Network Agency law 2020 fulfilled the sections 7-19 in appointing the Amotekun board chairman, commandant and others working with the agency which is very professional in practice, but no such standards or qualifications for the recruitment of the Oyo State Amotekun operatives, no wonder there is thieves, taut and other miscreants among the Oyo State Amotekun operatives. It is also pertinent to point that it is clearly stated in the Oyo State Security Network Agency and Amotekun law 2020 that the powers of the Board shall include Board
(a) setting general policy guidelines for the management of the Agency;
(b) setting the administrative guidelines for the conditions and welfare of staff of the Agency;
(c) making recommendations to the Governor on the terms and conditions of employment and remuneration of staff of the Agency;
(d) approving programmes of training for members and other staff of the Agency for effectiveness and efficiency in the performance of their functions under this Law;
(e) providing a graded Command structure for the Amotekun Corps;
(f) designing and approving the uniform of the different grades of the Amotekun Corps;
(g) appointing suitable persons as members of the Amotekun Corps;
(h) promoting and disciplining the staff of the Agency.
No Oyo state Amotekun operative is graded nor promoted since the establishment. Please, Oyo State Amotekun board of governance exercise this power to bring professional practice to the Oyo State Security Network Agency and Amotekun Corps administration.
The Oyo State Security Network Agency law 2020 as professionally instituted allows the Agency in section 39 to make regulations, which standard operating procedures (SOP) and other regulations that can shape and guide operatives behavior should not be left out. And also recommended in section 39 (3) that “Until such regulations are made, extant regulations applicable in the Civil Service of the State shall continue to apply to the officers and operatives of the Agency”. This is grossly lacking in the Oyo State Security Network Agency and Amotekun Corps administration.
In nut-shell, all what egalitarian paid blogger itemized as provision of motorcycles and vehicles, recruitment of highest number of Amotekun operatives in South West and you forget the timely payment of operatives salary, all are score card for Oyo State government who is performing her constitutional duty and all these are equipment needed in a government establishment like Oyo State Security Network Agency and Amotekun Corps. The human resources working in the Agency should also motivate through institution of professional practice in the Agency. Motivate them with appointment letter, confirmation letter, leave bonus, ranks and grade, promotion,retirement and pension benefits and other benefits that can make their work more motivated and comfortable.
The Oyo State government and Amotekun board of governance are beseech, if the Oyo State Security Network Agency and Amotekun Corps cannot beat the Ondo State Security Network Agency and Amotekun Corps. Please, join the Ondo State Security Network Agency and Amotekun Corps in terms of professional practice and quality administration.
