Peter Obi Can Tackle Nigeria’s Insecurity – Gen John Enenche
The Former Coordinator of Defence Media, Maj-Gen John Enenche, said the Labour Party’s presidential candidate Peter Obi has what it takes tackle Nigeria’s Insecurity.
He said this in an interview on Channels Television on Tuesday. Gen Enenche also recalled how Peter Obi restored security in Onitsha and other parts of Anambra while serving as governor of the state.
Enenche said he first met Obi in 2006 when he came in as governor of Anambra State and took over from Chris Ngige.
“As it were then, there was no Operation MESA in Onitsha in Anambra State. Criminals and agitators were doing whatever they liked. He made presentations and they approved Operation MESA for him and I was the operations commander.
“As it were when he came, the problem was so serious that police were prevented from even doing their work inside Onitsha town. His Excellency, Peter Obi, when Operation MESA was permitted, all that we needed was provided,” he said.
Asked if Obi has what it takes to end Nigeria’s security challenges, he said, “If what we did in Anambra State then and what even the police confirmed, yes, it will. I can tell you that he will be in command and control and he will be available 24/7, he will be passionate.”
Enenche has been in the news of late after he declared support for Obi. The inclusion of his name in the presidential campaign list of Obi also stirred controversy which forced the Labour Party to remove him as a member of the campaign team.
