APC Plans Military Intervention And Assassinations - FFK

The drama that has evolved in the build up to the 2015 elections is one that Nigerians and many followers of the country’s politics may never forget in a long while.

However, one name that probably pops into the head when many think about the drama experienced so far has to be the director of media and publicity of the Peoples Democratic Party presidential campaign organisation, Femi Fani-Kayode.

In a fresh allegation against the opposition party, the All Progressives Congress, Fani-Kayode said he has watched a video which showed the leaders of the APC planning to mobilise Nigerians to demand a military intervention if President Goodluck Jonathan wins the forthcoming presidential election.

Fani-Kayode told journalists in Abuja on Monday, March 23, that the nine-minute video produced by the APC had been obtained and secretly viewed by the intelligence unit of his directorate.

Alleging further, he said the opposition leaders “specifically asked for the assassination of key members” of Jonathan’s government.

He said: “They went as far as to suggest that when the presidential election is fought and won and President Goodluck Jonathan emerges as the winner, that the people should call for a full scale military intervention rather than allowing Jonathan to come back.

“They also specifically asked for the targeting and assassination of key members of this administration and a number of its supporters in the event of a Jonathan victory in the coming elections.

“We say in clear terms that the video in question and the intentions of those behind it is reprehensible, irresponsible and it is unacceptable. We wish to take this opportunity to let the APC know that under no circumstances will we allow them to rob us of our legitimate mandate, which, hopefully, will be legitimately and freely given to the President by the Nigerian people on March 28.”

“We will not also tolerate any act of violence or any attempt to assassinate anybody by their agents in the event of us winning and neither will the people of this country ever allow another military intervention.”

“They made all kinds of allegations, including the alleged relationship between the President of Chad, the President of Nigeria and Ali Modu Sheriff. Needless to say these allegations are baseless and they are simply unbelievable. Again, a lot of foreign footage is contained in the video, which suggests that there is an international dimension to the production.”

“This confirms our fears and belief that the APC is being sponsored primarily by money from foreign countries and by agents of foreign governments that are hostile to the interest of our beloved nation, Nigeria.”

Femi Fani-Kayode, who has been at the centre of many controversies, earlier raised the alarm over an alleged plan of the APC to announce fake results for the presidential election which is just four days away.
