The director general of the Goodluck Jonathan campaign organisation, Femi Fani -Kayode, has asked the Nigerian Broadcasting Corporation, NBC, to stop what he termed the illegal operation of APC radio, which he accused the opposition All Progressives Congress, APC, of running.

At a press conference in Abuja on Wednesday, Fani – Kayode alleged that the station’s focus was to incite Nigerians against the federal government.

He accused the former Ekiti State governor, Kayode Fayemi, and the APC leader, Bola Tinubu, of being the brains behind the APC radio, which he described as a “propaganda tool”.

“Our attention had been drawn to the existence of an illegal radio station called “APC Radio” or “Radio Chanji” he stated, adding that the 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 to set its house in order, while ensuring that its rules are followed. We are asking them to use all means available to stop this illegal radio from operating and if necessary to block its illegal operations,” Fani – Kayode stated further.

he also alleged that the APC plans to use the radio station as a propaganda tool to fight the PDP-led government after if loses in the general elections.

He further urged the security agencies to arrest an APC leader, Yusuf Mamman, and to question Kayode Fayemi, Bola Tinubu and the presidential candidate of the APC, Muhammadu Buhari, on the “illicit and dangerous agenda of this illegal Radio station”’.

Stressing that the PDP would not allow the APC to achieve its plan to destabilise Nigeria, Fani-Kayode also stated that “The opposition knows that they would lose the election and after this happens, it is their intention to begin to use this illegal Radio Station to incite Nigerians against the government”.



    “They seek to create mayhem, cause panic and create an atmosphere in which their supporters will be encouraged to slaughter and kill innocent Nigerians whilst the country burns,” he said.

    Fani-Kayode accused the opposition party of trying to create division and utter chaos within the Nigerian state, using religion and ethnicity.

    “It is through the auspices of this illegal Radio Station that they intend to announce members of their planned parallel government, to nominate their ministers and to then create major crisis in our country.

    “The whole thing is simply an attempt to denigrate the Nigerian people and bring us into disrepute before the international community,” he said.
