PDP Tasks NBC On ‘Radio Chanji’
Briefing journalists in Abuja, media director of the PDP presidential campaign organisation, Femi Fani-Kayode, stated that the PDP had been vindicated on the existence of the radio station following a confirmation by the NBC that it actually existed.
“We believe that we have been vindicated on the report we gave to you just two days ago about the existence of Radio Chanji.
“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,” he declared
On the motives of the founders of the radio station, Fani Kayode said: “Apart from anything else, they wish to use the station to announce false results after the elections are conducted. There is, however, a less obvious motive and intention.
“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.”
He continued: “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.”
Fani-Kayode equally called on the APC presidential candidate to explain the source of funding for his campaigns
“Is it true that Buhari gets massive covert funding from Hamas, ISIS, ISIL, Al Qaeda and various shady Middle Eastern interests? Is it true that he was once nominated by Boko Haram to be their spokesman in proposed talks with the Federal Government?” he queried.
