Fayemi e1505404341604Ekiti State Governor, Kayode Fayemi has come out to say that governors in the South West would soon review Federal Government’s decision to declare Operation Amotekun, an illegal outfit.

He revealed this at a recent press dinner with the media in the state.

According to him, he cannot say anything on his own now because he does not have the right information at the moment.

He added that the right reaction should be expected from the governors involved.

His words, “I don’t have an answer to this individually because I have not been adequately briefed on the new stand.

“I have just heard of that from you (newsmen) now. I will try to find out the position of the governors of the South West states. You know I do not speak for the governors.

“If what you are saying is true, there will be an appropriate reaction to it.”
