The All Progressives Congress ( APC) has raised the alarm over suspicious, election-related activities being carried out at the Federal Government Press on Mobil Road, opposite Coca Cola, at
In a statement issued in Lagos on Saturday by its National Publicity Secretary, Alhaji Lai Mohammed, the party said workers at the facility were sent home early on Friday, apparently so it can be made ready for use today (Saturday, March 28th) for a ‘presidency’ assignment.
“A concerned Nigerian alerted us to these developments, and we wonder what a Federal Government facility can be needed for on election day if it is not part of the facilities designated by INEC for election
“We are therefore compelled to alert the security agencies to urgently put the Federal Government Press at Mobil Road in Lagos under surveillance, with a view to stopping any possible illegal activities that may be going on there on this election day,” it said.
APC said with the avowed desperation of the PDP to capture Lagos State at all cost, it cannot be trusted not to resort to underhand activities to manipulate the polls in the state, hence the alarm.
Blockage of APC leaders phone lines
The party also said the phone lines of key leaders of APC have been bombarded with calls from an unknown number with a view to rendering them useless on election day.
The calls, which started in the early hours of Saturday, were so persistent that genuine calls could not come in while no calls could be made from the phone lines.
Also, the phone line of APC National Leader Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu was hacked and used to send a message purportedly asking his supporters to vote for President Jonathan.
“We urge all our members and supporters, and indeed all Nigerians, to ignore the purported message as it did not emanate from Asiwaju,” APC said.
