Director, Media and Publicity of the People’s Democratic Party Presidential Campaign Organisation (PDPPCO), Femi Fani-Kayode, has reiterated the call for the arrest of the Presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Muhammadu Buhari and the National leader of the party, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu over the existence of an ‘illegal’ radio station called “APC Radio or ” Radio Chanji”.
The former Aviation minister also called for the arrest of Rivers State Governor Rotimi Amaechi; former governor of Ekiti State, Dr. Kayode Fayemi and former Nigeria Ambassador to Spain, Ambassador Yusuf Mamman. According to Fani-Kayode, the renewed call came following a confirmation by the National Broadcasting Commission that the radio station does exist.
“We have invited you here today to let you know that we believe that we have been vindicated on the report we gave to you just two days ago about the existence of Radio Chanji. This is despite the denials and the lies by the All Progressives Congress (APC) about the true situation of things and about their dastardly intentions and sinister plots to use the station for nefarious purposes.
“The fact that the Nigerian Broadcasting Corporation (NBC), only yesterday, confirmed that this radio station exists, that it is possible that its operations are being conducted from outside the country and that the operations have been on-going for a while, albeit in a very low key manner, gives us even more cause for concern than we had before.
“Once again, we wish to point out the dangers of this radio station and the evil intention of the people behind it. Apart from anything else, they wish to use the station to announce false results after the up-coming elections are conducted. That is the primary and more obvious intention and motive. There is, however, a less obvious motive and intention and it is as follows.
“We believe that it is only after the APC has been defeated in the Presidential elections that the secondary purpose of this station will manifest. The truth is that they intend to use it to create division, chaos and strife in Nigeria by propagating the most irresponsible form of mendacious and inciting falsehood and provocative propaganda.
“They also intend to use it to incite their supporters to kill. Once again we call on the authorities to investigate, question and arrest the people behind it before it is too late and before all hell breaks loose,” he said.
