2023: Why I Can’t Condemn ESN – Peter Obi

Peter Obi, the Labour Party’s (LP) presidential candidate, says he can’t denounce the Eastern Security Network (ESN) because he doesn’t know what they’re up to.

The former governor of Anambra, speaking on Monday at ‘The Candidates,’ a presidential town hall series, said agitations in sections of the country are the product of leadership failure.

He stated that if elected president, his government will handle the matter through diplomacy.

“The first of our seven-point agenda is to ensure the security of the lives and properties of Nigerians, and to show a united and one Nigeria by ensuring that there is equity, justice, and doing things following rule of law,” he said.

“Everywhere in the country is full of agitation. It is the effect of leadership failure. There is nothing wrong with agitation. You dialogue and discuss with everybody.

“I can’t condemn ESN because I’m not sure who is doing what. You can only condemn people when there is a process in which they have said this person has done something.”

Meanwhile, at an Arewa Joint Committee interactive session in Kaduna in October, Obi stated that ESN was created by governors from the south-east, which was revealed to be incorrect.

Nnamdi Kanu, head of the outlawed Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), declared the establishment of the ESN in December 2020.
