The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) Presidential Campaign Organisation, has charged Nigerians not to allow themselves to be used to perpetrate violence before, during and after upcoming elections.

Femi Fani-Kayode, Director of Media and Publicity of the organisation, gave the charge in a statement on Tuesday in Abuja.

He, however, accused the All Progressives Congress (APC) of resorting to “guerrilla journalism” through the establishment and operation of an illegal radio station, ‘’Radio Chanji’’ at a secret location outside the country.

“The opposition has insisted on continuing in what we call guerrilla journalism by making all kinds of pronouncements and false statements from that radio station.

“Once again, we must let Nigerians know that what the APC intends to do is to incite the public to violence after they lose the elections.

“They also intend to use the station to announce false results all over the country, particularly targeting Northern Nigeria.

‘’It is important that we alert the public about this sinister agenda,’’ he said.

According to him, the radio station is operating on a medium wave which is completely illegal.

Mr. Fani-Kayode therefore urged Nigerians not to allow themselves to be used for violence and to ignore every fake result that would be pronounced by this illegal radio station on March 28 and 29.

He decried the consistent verbal attacks by the APC leadership on traditional rulers and institutions, especially in the South-West.

“Our message to the APC leadership is to leave our Obas alone and our warning to them is that if they refuse to do so, they will regret it deeply at the polls.

“The latest insult they indulged in, was when they labelled our revered traditional rulers as bribe takers.

“They suggested that our candidate, President Goodluck Jonathan, was giving them bribes and that they were gladly receiving those bribes,’’ he said.
