The Peoples Democratic Party Presidential Campaign Organisation (PDPPCO) on Wednesday called on security agencies to arrest the presidential candidate of the opposition All Progressives Congress (APC), retired General Muhammadu Buhari and his campaign Director-General, Governor Rotimi Amaechi for operating an “illegal” radio station.
The PDP campaign also wants the APC national leader and former governor of Lagos State, Bola Tinubu, former governor of Ekiti State, Kayode Fayemi and Yusuf Mamman put behind bars.
Addressing newsmen in Abuja, director of media and publicity of the organisation, Chief Femi Fani-Kayode said APC is 'illegally' operating a radio station to project its image positively and discredit the PDP, describing the development as dangerous and worrisome. "Our attention has been drawn to the existence of an illegal radio station called “APC RADIO’’ or ‘’RADIO CHANJI’’. This radio station has been broadcasting falsehood, propaganda and inciting comments periodically over the last few days and since inception. "The truth of the matter is that this will not work. However, it is important for the security agencies to arrest Yusuf Mamman and question Kayode Fayemi, Bola Tinubu, Rotimi Amaechi and the APC Presidential candidate, General Muhammadu Buhari himself on the operation, illicit and dangerous agenda of this illegal radio station. "We will not sit back and watch them achieve their objectives. We will not allow them to destabilise Nigeria and we will not allow them to create a parallel government after they lose the elections," he said. Fani-Kayode said the APC has sponsored a documentary aimed at tarnishing the image of President Goodluck Jonathan three days to next Saturday's presidential election, saying it contains all manner of lies, deceit, fabrication, slander, falsehood and misrepresentation of the basic facts. "A scurrilous and utterly baseless documentary and video has been commissioned and compiled by them. It is titled ‘’Nigerians…What Is Going On’’. In the documentary the opposition has listed some areas which they claim reflect the corrupt nature of the Nigerian people, the nature of the President and the nature of the government that he is heading," he added. He said the documentary is about alleged $15 million US Private Jet Arms Scandal, N5 trillion allegedly stolen under Jonathan, N21 billion Pension funds embezzled, N10 billion private jet scandal, N1.6 trillion oil subsidy scandal, among others.
