EndSars: I’m fine with my removal from Labour Party’s PAC, says Ex-Army Spokesman, Enenche

Former Army spokesperson, Major General John Enenche (Rtd.) says he has no qualms with the delisting of his name from the Presidential Advisory Council (PAC) of Labour Party (LP).

The inclusion of Enenche’s name to the PAC list sparked outrage both online and offline especially among those sympathetic to LP’s presidential candidate, Peter Obi.

Their vehement opposition to Enenche’s membership of LP PAC was spurred by his perceived involvement in the killing of harmless and defenceless Nigerians protesting police brutality at the Lekki toll gate in 2020.

Reacting to the development, Enenche described his removal as a good development, adding that he was not fazed by the action.

He made the comment while granting an interview on ARISE TV, where he attributed the calls for his removal to lack of adequate information on the #EndSars incident.

He insisted on the need for “strategic information” to younger Nigerians on the October 11, 2020, alleged killing of unarmed protesters at the Lekki Toll Gate.

Recall that Enenche had been facing backlash for the alleged role he played during the EndSARS protest in Lagos.

The former Army Spokesperson, who said that he was encouraged by his exit from the campaign council, added that he “looks forward to a Nigeria that the economy will be good, a Nigeria that I only will not sit down and be getting phone calls for support, one that children can be empowered, one that there is hope, one also that the upcoming generation will know that you don’t need to know somebody to know somebody before you can go forward.”

He added, “A Nigeria that you know that if you want to go out for anything, it is on merit. A Nigeria that you know that things will be done properly and not because of where you come from; a Nigeria where there’s equitable distribution of resources, a Nigeria where children will begin to look at that you have to labour before you get and not one where there is corruption.”

While lamenting that corruption has since become a norm in Nigeria, the retired Major General said he was convinced to remain in the party and support its presidential and vice presidential candidates for the 2023 general elections.
