In an interview with AriseTV, retired Major General Paul Enenche has revealed the character and commitment of Labour Party presidential candidate Peter Obi in his attitude towards tackling insecurity.

Watch and listen to General Paul Enenche:


General Paul Enenche said that he was army commander when Peter Obi was sworn-in as governor.

The then fresh mint new governor came straight to meet him in Onitsha. His agenda?

He was worried about the gross insecurity in the city which was generally in Anambra State, but worse in the commercial city of Onitsha.

They worked out a strategy to tackle insecurity and this worked.

What he saw was a genuine desire and utmost commitment in Peter Obi. He teamed up with him and together, the insecurity that Onitsha was noted for became a thing of the past.

It should be noted that in the eight years that Peter Obi reigned as governor of Anambra State, he had only police Commissioners from the north who were either Christians or Muslims. He never lobbied for anyone to come and he accepted each one that came and worked with them to secure Anambra State, making the state the most secure state in the country in terms of internal security.

All the police Commissioners have equally testified in favour of Obi.
He never had one single Police Commissioner that was even a Southerner, least of all, an Igbo man.

From General Enenche, we now know that the same thing happened in the army.

So what sophistry of lies can be spun against Peter Obi that can stand when the dramatis personae are alive and well ?

That the status quo Politics that has held Nigeria down is about to be challenged and torn down forever for a new Nigeria to emerge is too much for the old order of politics to take. This is why they are fighting the change.

But Nigeria is about to rise out of the ashes of being bent down in defeat.
