Campaign for Democracy, CD, has denied a media report credited to it calling for the prosecution of former President Goodluck Jonathan over his alleged involvement in the disbursement of the $2.1 billion arms deal.
In a statement released yesterday in Abeokuta, the Ogun State capital, and signed by its national president and publicity secretary, Comrades Bako Abdul Usman and Lanre Ogunyinka, respectively, the organisation said it was not known for such frivolities and toying with such national issues.
The statement explained that one Ifeanyi Odili who reportedly signed the statement was not an officer of the organisation and as such lacked the moral and constitutional status to speak on behalf of Campaign for Democracy.
It further said that the said Odili, who was allegedly dismissed from Army Comprehensive High School in Akure, Ondo State, is an impostor whose recent conduct was suggestive of mischief and a political scavenger.
The organisation assured the general public of its resolve to vigorously campaign against every form of misrule and unpopular
policies of government with all decency, decorum and dignity.
It further assured that CD was planning a disciplinary action to arrest the recklessness and nuisance acts of Odili which, according to it, was inimical to the true course of the campaign.
The statement read in part: “The Campaign for Democracy, CD, hereby wishes to debunk and disclaim call accredited to it by one Ifeanyi Odili, a self styled national president asking the EFCC to commence the process of prosecuting former President Goodluck Jonathan over his alleged roles in the $2.1 billion arms scam.
“We wish to categorically state that the said Ifeanyi Odili is not an
officer of the organisation as claimed, and lacks both moral and constitutional status to speak on behalf of any of the executive arms of the organisation, neither is the Campaign for Democracy known with such frivolities nor toying with serious national matter through jaundiced outburst as being perpetrated by Ifeanyi Odili.
“The Campaign for Democracy wishes to re-assure the general public and particularly the Nigerian people of its resolve to vigorously campaign against every form of misrule and unpopular policies in our nascent democracy with all decency, decorum and dignity without fear or favour.
“Consequently, we dare to state that the fake national president does not have moral justification and cannot be representing the image, credibility and integrity of the Campaign for Democracy in any way.”
