The Convention for Democracy in Nigeria, popularly known  as CDN, on Thursday, accused opposition party of sponsoring a fictitious report through International Strategic Studies Association (ISSA).

ISSA, a non-governmental organisation based in Washington with a worldwide membership of professionals involved in national and international security and strategic policy, had stated in a special report that former Chief of Air Staff, Air Chief Marshal Alex Badeh, and a former Chief of Administration of the Nigerian Army, Maj.-Gen. Idris Alkali were killed to hide what it described as the pattern of corruption in the current military leadership in the country.

CDN said  ISSA is being used to churn out mischievous stories just to heat up the polity ahead of the 2019 general elections in Nigeria .

Abraham Uke, the National President while addressing a press conference on the development, described as insensitive the politicization of the murder of  Badeh and Alkali by the opposition party as a tool for propaganda.

Uke  said, “Politicising the deaths using the report is insensitive and the attempt to malign the Nigerian government with the killing of Badeh and Alkali is irresponsible even for a group of people that were long ago described as a nest of vipers. This desecration of memory of the departed is purely a prop for the purpose of elections. The intention is to instigate crisis in the polity and cause ethnic and religious strife that are all geared towards destabilizing the 2019 General Elections.

As a non-partisan platform, Convention for Democracy will not sit down and watch any Nigerian or group of persons destroy the peace of the country. No one’s ambition is worth destroying Nigeria for and PDP should know this better with the benefit of experience”.
