2023 Elections: Gen. Enenche speaks on Lekki Toll Gate, Peter Obi, and his support for him

Major General John Enenche (rtd) has backed Peter Obi, the presidential candidate of the Labour Party, LP, ahead of the 2023 presidential election.

In a recent statement, Enenche urged well-meaning Nigerians from all socioeconomic backgrounds to participate in the country’s current political process in order to elect credible, competent, and capable leaders in 2023.

The retired Army General stated that he has decided to speak out rather than remain silent, and he urged Nigerians of good conscience to do the same.

“Consequently, I made bold to openly and objectively support the candidature of HE Mr Peter Obi and Dr Yusuf Ahmed-Datti without fear or contraction.”

“This is what Nigeria needs now to overcome all the numerous challenges imposed on the citizenry in the last two decades.

“I believe that all Obedient Nigerians among others that believe and are working towards a new Nigeria and taking our country back have the same conviction as me.

“In this regard, I appeal to all in this endeavour to allow us to maintain focus to achieve this all-important mission.

“Let me state here that a good number of us in this liberation effort have a lot to give and contribute based on knowledge acquired over time in excess of thirty years, that will give a solid foundation to Labour Party Government at all levels in Nigeria from 2023.

“Dear countrymen and women, following my appointment on the campaign council of the Labour Party, there were reactions on social media about my pronouncement concerning a video shot at the scene of the ENDARS incident at Lekki toll gate on 20 October 2020.

“Everyone that commented in any way was right based on the information at their disposal and individual analysis. Personally and professionally, I worked with the overriding interest of Nigerians at heart based on the oath of allegiance I swore on commission into military service which is sacrosanct.

“I sincerely shared in the pains of that breaking news through social media as it were. On this note, I want to assure all that more effort will be put in, so that all assertions can be cleared convincingly from appropriate sources.”.
