Ekiti to translate Amotekun law, others into Yoruba

Ekiti State Attorney General and Commissioner for Justice, Wale Fapohunda, says  Governor Kayode Fayemi has  approved the translation of laws in  the  state  from English into Yoruba.

 Fapohunda named  the bill for the establishment of  the Amotekun Corps and Ekiti State Security Network Agency passed into law on Friday by the House of Assembly among the laws to be translated.

The AG said  in a statement on Wednesday, “The Ekiti State Security Network Agency Bill affects the everyday life of the people of Ekiti State, especially those in rural communities.

“It therefore follows that this is one legislation that  our people need to understand.”

According to Fapohunda, some of the laws that will be translated immediately include the Sustainable Development Goals Law, Ekiti State 2019; Ekiti State Property Protection (Anti-Land Grabbing) Law 2019; Ekiti State Gender Based Violence (Prohibition) Law 2019, and Ekiti State (Transition) Law 2019.

He  said, “There are many qualified academics at  the Ekiti State University, who are specialised in Yoruba language. We will work with them.”

Fapohunda also said some of the policy documents of the ministry like the Ekiti State Charter for Victims of Crime, Directive on Non-discontinuance of Criminal Matters, Additional Measures in Aid of Prosecution of Sexual Violence would be translated into Yoruba.
