APC raises alarm over use of FG facility in Lagos, blockage of leaders’ phones, other matters


Elections2015The All Progressives Congress ( APC) has raised the alarm over
suspicious, election-related activities being carried out at the
Federal Government Press on Mobil Road, opposite Coca Cola, at
Ajegunle, Lagos.

In a statement issued in Lagos on Saturday by its National Publicity
Secretary, Alhaji Lai Mohammed, the party said workers at the facility
were sent home early on Friday, apparently so it can be made ready for
use today (Saturday, March 28th) for a ‘presidency’ assignment.

”A concerned Nigerian alerted us to these developments, and we wonder
what a federal government facil‎ity can be needed for on election day
if it is not part of the facilities designated by INEC for election
collation purpose.

”We are therefore compelled to alert the security agencies to
urgently put the Federal Government Press at Mobil Road in Lagos under
surveillance, with a view to stopping any possible illegal activities
that may be going on there on this election day,” it said.

APC said with the avowed desperation of the PDP to capture Lagos State
at all cost, it cannot be trusted not to resort to underhand
activities to manipulate the polls in the state, hence the alarm.

Blockage of APC leaders phone lines

The party also said the phone lines of key leaders of APC have been
bombarded with calls from an unknown number with a view to rendering
them useless on election day.

The calls, which started in the early hours of Saturday, were so
persistent that genuine calls could not come in while no calls could
be made from the phone lines.

    APC always thrive on raising false alarm and unnecessary propaganda to curry home public sympathy.

  • Uzoma

    APC, campaign is over. Today, Nigerians are voting and would rather you spared them of your useless alarms. If anything, you will do well to learn from Jonathan’s example, I mean, from how he reacted when the PVC reader wouldn’t accredit him. Instead of shouting, “INEC, our party warned you about the unreliability of this gizmo”, he calmly asked Nigerians to exercise patience and show understanding for failures since this was the first time the technology was being used.

    APC full of false alarm and Burgos claim acting like kids reporting their siblings to their parents.

  • Don Meche

    The APC leaders whose phones were bombarded with unknown calls should just activate their call waiting services, and once the unknown call comes, pick it and leave it on so that other calls can come in. Or if call barring services in some phones can stop these calls.
