Dr. Paul Enenche, the Senior Pastor of Dunamis International Gospel Centre, has disclosed the real reason for the ongoing protest by Nigerian youths.
According to him, the ongoing protest by Nigerian youths to the loud impunity, nepotism, tribalism, oppression and subjugation across Nigeria.
Recall that for over a week, Nigerian youths have been protesting police brutality.
The protest had led to the dissolution of the Special Anti-Robbery Squad, SARS, by the Inspector General of Police, IGP, Mohammed Adamu.
Adamu had also announced the establishment of the Special Weapon and Tactics Team, SWAT.
But in his reaction to the protest, the clergyman decried how a section of the country was in charge of juicy positions in government while other zones look helplessly.
In a video broadcast, Enenche said: “There is no peace where there is massive injustice, unfairness and lack of equity. There can be no peace in the face of oppression, suppression and subjugation of one people by another. There can be no peace in the face of nepotism, tribalism, regionalism, religionism and every form of such prejudice. There can be no peace in the midst of deprivation, poverty and hunger.”
He also pointed out that equity, fairness and justice remained the panacea to the crisis.
Speaking further, he said, “People have clamoured for restructuring. It is the devolution of power; otherwise, there may be dissolution of union. It happened in other places and we pray and trust God it doesn’t happen in our nation.
“It is not time to play the ostrich and hide the under. What is not confronted cannot be conquered. In medicine we called something the debridement of wound, you expose wounds in order to repair them.
“It is time to tell the truth because people have been suppressed, subdued, subjugated and treated as if they don’t reason.
“Nigeria is one of the most intelligent nations in the world. Our doctors and our professionals are the most intelligent in the world. It is time for us to sit up and say these things must be corrected.”
The cleric urged protesters not go violent while expressing their anger.
“As for every protest going on, two wrongs cannot make a right. Protests are encouraged to be peaceful and calm. No destruction of lives and properties in any form. Let lives not flow because of abnormalities in the land.”
