The Corporate Affairs Commission (CAC), the body responsible for regulating the formation and management of companies in Nigeria has cancelled the registration of Enough is Enough, a move many have described as another attempt to clampdown on promoters of the #EndSARS protest.
The CAC took to Twitter and said, “based on the provisions of Section 579 (2) of the Companies and Allied Matters Act, (CAMA), the Corporate Affairs Commission has cancelled the registration of the Business name Enough is Enough BN 2210728 with immediate effect.”
In a series of tweets on its handle, the commission said “the Business Name ‘Enough is Enough’, which was registered in 2012 to engage in General Contracts, Sales of Sport Equipment/Promotion deviated from its main objectives over the cause of time.
“Further to cancellation of the Business Name registration ‘Enough is Enough BN 2210728’, the Corporate Affairs Commission wishes to inform the public that the proprietors of the cancelled Business name are: OPAYEMI ADAMOLEKUN and BISOLA EDUN,” the CAC wrote on Wednesday.
“Consequently, the Commission has removed it from its database and advised the proprietors to surrender the certificate earlier issued to them.”
Meanwhile, the management of EiE Nigeria has reacted to the announcement of the commission. “EiE Nigeria aka EiE is registered as: “The EiE Project Ltd/Gte,” the organisation said on Twitter.
The statement of EiE Nigeria, however, shows that the certification of a company with a similar name as EiE was publicly revoked by CAC and not that of Opeyemi Adamolekun.
Adamolekun, an activist, is the head of the non-governmental organization and is believed to be, alongside the NGO, the main target of the CAC.
The Enough is Enough Nigeria, began operations in January 2011 but was formally registered in July 2012.
