Comrade Ifeanyi Odili has been unanimously elected as the new General Secretary of Campaign for Democracy (CD).
Comrade Odili’s election followed the expulsion of the former General Secretary of the civil society organisation, Mr Goodluck Obi.
The Nigeria’s foremost pro-democracy group kicked out Mr Obi for allegation bordering on lack of integrity.
The election of Mr Odili took place at a special convention held recently.
The group, following the recommendation of a 5-man disciplinary panel which deliberated on the imperatives, unanimously elected Comrade Ifeanyi Odili as the new general secretary, and advised members of the public to desist from dealing with the expelled General Secretary, in any capacity, as a member of the CD.
Also in a related development at the special convention, CD condemned the recent demand by of fresh bailout funds by the Nigerian Governors Forum from the Federal Government.
The group called on the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) to investigate the utilization of the previous bailout funds released in times past.
Recall that President Muhammadu Buhari has twice rescued states from bankruptcy, releasing bailout fund to facilitate salary payments amongst other imperative needs but some states are still recorded to owe salaries.
While CD also endorsed the ongoing anti-corruption campaign of the federal government, it also demanded an immediate release of the Vice President Osinbajo led panel of investigation, on the former SGF, Mr Babachir Lawal; and the NIA DG, Mr Ayo Oke.
