PDP accuses APC of planning anti-govt documentary
THE Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) yesterday alleged that the leadership of the All Progressives Congress (APC) is producing a video documentary worth two million dollars to allegedly discredit the Federal Government and Nigeria before the international community.
Addressing a press conference in Abuja, the Media Director of PDP Presidential Campaign Organisation, Mr. Femi Fani-Kayode, alleged that the objective of the planned documentary is to incite the people, to destabilise the country and to bring the President into utter disrepute. In order to achieve, he said, these effectively consistent personal attacks would be launched on key government officials.
Fani-Kayode said: “We consider to be very dangerous, is full of false and irresponsible postulations about what is going on in this country and if it is released in its present form, it is capable of setting Nigeria on fire. We are letting the Nigerian people know about this in good time in order to pre-empt it and we want the opposition to be fully aware of the fact that we know what they are doing, what they are planning, when they were planning it and who is involved. We also know the amount budgeted for this project, who is disbursing the money and what their real intentions are.”
The party also asked security agencies to immediately arrest and interrogate some APC leaders for allegedly floating illegal radio station to destabilise the country after the presidential election.
Fani-Kayode, who alleged that the objective of the radio station called ‘APC RADIO or RADIO CHANJI’ was to create panic and cause mayhem in the country after the opposition party might have lost election, said the radio station would also be used to incite the armed forces to mutiny and cause chaos and division within Nigeria using religion and ethnicity.
He said: “Again, gentlemen of the media, our attention had 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.
We seize this opportunity to call on the Nigerian Broadcasting Corporation (NBC) to set its house in order while ensuring that its rules are followed. We call on them to use all means available to stop this illegal radio station from operating and if necessary to block its illegal transmissions.”
Fani-Kayode further said: “We also want them to be fully aware of the fact that even if Gen. Muhammadu Buhari, Bola Tinubu, Rotimi Amaechi or any of them are in their toilets, in their bedrooms, in their covens or anywhere else they may choose to hide and hold their secret meetings, we know what they are doing.
“We want to say that such an irresponsible course will not achieve the objective for which it was set. This government, this country and our dear President will not be destabilised and distracted and Nigeria will not be set on fire.”
