THE BEKO RIGHTS KLUB TO COMMEMORATE 10 YEAR ANNIVERSARY OF THE PASSAGE OF DR BEKO RANSOME KUTI. CALLS NATIONAL PARDON FOR BRIGADIER ENITAN RANSOME KUTI
The Beko Rights Klub (BRK) has lined up activities to commemorate the 10 year Anniversary of the passage of its’ Mentor, Dr. Bekololari Ransome Kuti who passed on February 10, 2005.
Activities lined up for the commemoration will witness the laying of Wreaths at the Graveside of the late Hero of the masses; a rally at Anthony Village (Anthony Oke) in Lagos, where the Beko Ransome Kuti Garden is located and a Motorcade rally to the Lagos state House of Assembly (LAHA) and the Governor’s Office where letters of plea will be handed to the Speaker and the Governor for onward transmission to the National Assembly and Presidency. The BRK will call on the Honourable members and the Lagos government to lend their voices to the passionate plea of the Klub to the Federal government and President Muhammed Buhari for a National Pardon for the son of Dr. Kuti, Brigadier General Enitan Ransome Kuti.
Convenor of the Beko Rights Klub, Mr. Debo Adeniran said ‘’the Klub is utilising the occasion of the commemoration of Beko’s passage to call on the Nigerian government to grant Brigadier General Enitan Ransome Kuti, son of our late Hero, National Pardon with regard to the case of ‘mutiny’ against him following the decision of the Military to Court martial him after the Baga massacre carried out by Boko Haram Insurgents in January 2015. Brigadier-General Enitan remains in imprisonment till date, even though history has absolved him.’’
‘’We are strongly convinced that the revelations reeled out from the Arms procurement scandal and the DasukiGate confirm his innocence and patriotism. In fact, we believe with those expositions, the actions of Brigadier General Enitan and others are justiciable, reasonable and dialectical.’’ Mr. Adeniran added.
