*Alleges APC Leaders Floated Radio Station To Destabilise Jonathan’s Govt
The Presidential Campaign of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has given a hint that it had mounted surveillance on top leaders of the opposition group including General Muhammadu Buhari, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, Rotimi Amaechi and others to track their game plans ahead of the general elections.
The PDP Campaign Organisation said it was through the all-round surveillance on the APC leaders that it got the wind on plans by the opposition group to release a damaging documentary on president Goodluck Jonathan, his government and cabinet members.
Addressing the media on the issue, the Director Media and Publicity of the Campaign Organisation, Chief Femi Fani-Kayode said the motive behind the planned documentary titled “Nigerians… what is Going On”, is to discredit the Jonathan’s government while at the same time incite Nigerians to rise against it.
He said the documentary, as planned would also be used to incite the military officers to mutiny amid plans by the leaders of the opposition to use an attendant chaos in the country to actualise their plans on creating a parallel government and naming ministers to serve in the government.
Fani-Kayode said the opposition camp had already established a Radio station named APC Radio, or Radio Chanji as a tool for propagating and actualising its plans on creating confusion in Nigeria.
He claimed that patriotic Nigerians in the camp of the opposition leaked the idea of the planned documentary on Jonathan and his cabinet members to the PDP Campaign Organisation.
He said, “ 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.
“We also want them to be fully aware of the fact that even if General 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”.
Fani-Kayode also disclosed that the sum of two million dollars was budgeted for the floating of the Radio Station, adding that the APC leaders behind it had brought in three specialists and well known international spin doctors from two western countries to execute the project.
He said, “These specialists are now in Nigeria to put finishing touches to their project. The whole idea is to perfect the work and then release it to the international television networks and the Nigerian public three days before the elections”.
He said the objective of the planned documentary is to incite the people, to destabilise the country and to bring the President into utter disrepute, adding that to achieve these effectively, consistent personal attacks will be launched on key government officials.
The documentary which he described as very dangerous, according to him is full of false and irresponsible postulations about what is going on in this country. He said if the documentary was released, in its present form, it would set Nigeria on fire.
