Director, media and publicity of the People’s Democratic Party Presidential Campaign Organisation (PDPPCO), Chief Femi Fani-Kayode has alleged that the opposition All Progressives Congress (APC) is planning to use its "illegal" Radio Chanji to announce false results of next Saturday's Presidential and National Assembly elections.
A statement by the media director on Tuesday in Abuja said their aim is to announce the results all over the country and particularly in Northern Nigeria. Fani-Kayode berated the APC for resorting to what he termed “guerilla journalism” through the establishment and operation of "illegal Radio Chanji" at a secret location outside the country and lampooned the party's leadership for consistently indulging in all manner of occultism. “The first is our concern about the intentions of the APC to use the radio station known as Radio Change (Radio Chanji in Hausa) to create crises in this country after the election results have been announced. “Once again, we must let the Nigerian people know that what the APC intends to do is to incite the Nigerian public to violence after they lose the election. They also intend to use the station to announce false results all over the country, particularly targeting Northern Nigeria. It is important that we alert the public about this sinister agenda. "We urge the Nigerian people not to allow themselves to be used for violence and to ignore every fake result that will be pronounced by this illegal radio station on March 28 and 29, 2015," he said. He condemned what he called "consistent verbal attacks" by the APC leaders on traditional rulers and institutions in the South-Western part of the country, saying: "our message to the APC leadership is to leave our Obas alone and our warning to them is that if they refuse to do so they will regret it deeply at the polls," he said.
