Stop Using Illegality To Ratify Illegality, Group Tells Campaign for Democracy
The National Centre for Human Rights (NCHR) has called on the general public to disregard the purported and fraudulent Campaign for Democracy Convention illegally held at the residence of Late Chief MKO Abiola in Ikeja, Lagos.
In a press release by NCHR Publicity Secretary, Charles Nwokedi, he said that Chief MKO Abiola was never part of illegality and character assassination when he was alive and would not have hosted nor allow his revered residence to be used as a meeting place for dastard acts by shenanigans and fraudulent elements masquerading as activists were he to be alive.
“In her initial publications, the Campaign for Democracy claimed 3-man disciplinary committee purportedly expelled Prince Goodluck Obi whereas the latest communique is claiming 5-man disciplinary panel, where is the integrity of the Campaign for Democracy? Is this not a Kangaroo Convention to tarnish the goodwill and reputation of Prince Goodluck Obi, the Group asked.
“We wondered why Prince Goodluck Obi’s allegations against the Campaign for Democracy became reckless and unconstitutional while theirs; despite illegal gathering, becomes constitutional?” the group said.
“From all indications, the Campaign for Democracy (CD) felt threatened by Prince Obi’s resourceful, selfless and purposeful Centre for Civil Society and Justice (CCSJ) prominence and activities hence, their machinations to dent his reputation as being ousted from office as the National General Secretary.
The Group called on the general public to ignore the purported Convention and ratification of the illegal and baseless expulsion of Prince Obi because he has every right to be a member of any Organisation including the Campaign for Democracy even though it is not registered with Corporate Affairs Commission.
Charles, who is also a bonafide member of the Campaign for Democracy said that the authentic Convention of CD will hold this week and decision of the omnipotent Congress would be circulated widely for public consumption.
