The General Secretary of frontline civil society organisation, Campaign for Democracy (CD), Goodluck Obi, has been expelled.
In a statement released at the end of an emergency meeting held by its National Executive Council (NEC), the group vowed that “it will not sit back and watch its age-long collective reputation, integrity and democratic struggles be rubbished on the altar of personal interest, selfishness and be subjected to the whims and caprice of Goodluck Obi.”
The statement insisted that CD is not a partisan organisation, and anyone that contradicts this principle and philosophy will be sanctioned accordingly. It also noted that “the activities of Mr. Obi Goodluck has been generating a lot of heated debate within and among the elites, fans and sympathisers of CD, which, has drawn serious attention of the media, culminating into unpleasant and fouls tasting complements and questions, as, when did CD become a political party?”
Obi was recently attributed to a phone conversation that leaked in the media tagged “Civil Society Contractor Reveals Money ‘eating’ Plan” amongst several other questionable activities including another one that flooded the media with Obi wearing Buhari’s T-Shirt with megaphone in his hand calling the unsuspicious members of the public and civil society to queue in to his anti union’s deal and support for Buhari’s second term.
CD disclosed that “the imperative decisive expulsion of Goodluck Obi has followed his refusal to acknowledge and respond to all queries issued to him, as well as, failure to appear before the three-man disciplinary panel headed by the CD National Publicity and Publications Secretary, Comrade Lanre Ogunyinka.”
