The Corporate Affairs Commission (CAC) has announced the removal of popular civil group, Enough is Enough from its database.

CAC stated that EIE was registered as an entity for sales of Sports Equipment/Promotion, not as a non-governmental organisation.

The CAC noted in a tweet that the entity has deviated from the original purpose of registration, therefore, resolved to cancel the business name.

The statement in full; “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.

“The above section provides amongst others that the Commission has the power to cancel the registration of a Business Name where the name is deceptive or objectionable.

“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.

“Consequently, the Commission has removed it from its database and advised the proprietors to surrender the certificate earlier issued to them.”

But EiE later tweeted a photo of its Certificate of Incorporation which showed that it was appropriately registered by the CAC but only bore a similar name with the company which the commission had deregistered.

It tweeted, “Enough is Enough Nigeria aka EiE Nigeria aka EiE is registered as: The EiE Project Ltd/Gte”. A big thank you to those who have reached out & spoken up for us! A luta continua! Vitória é certa!”

Earlier, EiE had condemned the freezing of accounts owned by #EndSARS protesters. It had tweeted, “The Nigerian government wants us, when faced with official actions with which we disagree, to obey and submit without daring to object.

“Case in view: seizure of passports, freezing of accounts by CBN, continued arrests of #EndSARS protesters, blame game, etc. #EnoughIsEnough.”

EiE, which defines itself as a network of young Nigerians promoting good governance and citizen engagement, has a large social media following with over 260,000 followers on Twitter alone.
