EXCLUSIVE: APC Radio Chanji set to commence broadcast on Monday with fake polls’ results

As the tally of the results from the March 28th presidential and National Assembly elections as collated by INEC on Sunday afternoon does not seem to be going the way of the All Progressives Congress, APC, chieftains want it, the party has decided to unleash its potent secret weapon, in the hope of poisoning the minds of the electorate.

Inside information available to our correspondent in Kaduna, reveals that after a meeting of some APC chieftains in the home of its governorship candidate, Malam Nasir El-Rufai on Sunday afternoon, it was resolved that the pirate radio which was launched by APC three weeks ago, but went underground when a security alarm was raised, will start broadcasting as early as Monday morning.

The APC hierarchy has decided, according to our sources, that its new APC pirate radio (Muryar Chanji) which broadcasts in Hausa language on Short Wave band will start announcing results of the elections that have not been authenticated or authorized by INEC to its highly emotive and captive audience. It will also encourage its audience to commence celebration over victories which the station would announce.

In the thinking of the owners of the station, it will complement what the APC agents are already doing on the social media, pending when the INEC eventually comes with the correct results, the already charged-up mobs would reply with violent repudiation of those accurate and officially authenticated results.

When Radio Chanji started broadcasting three weeks ago from an unknown location, many APC chieftains had owned up and claimed that the station had become necessary because the ruling PDP had taken control of the other major broadcast stations in the country.

The pirate radio which also streams on the Internet has been ruled as illegal and criminal because it is not operating with the authorization of the National Broadcasting Commission which licenses broadcast organisations, monitors and regulates broadcast practices and operations in the country.

Political observers have continued to draw attention to the grave dangers which the pirate radio poses to the peace, unity and corporate existence of Nigeria, as according to them, this singular act can stoke hostility and unhealthy rivalries amongst the nation’s ethnic and religious groups by broadcasting fake and inciting information like fake results.

The Rwandan massacre which claimed over 800, 000 Tutsis and moderate Hutus, 20 years ago, was incited by a pirate radio station that just emerged the ways APC’s pirate Radio Chanji is emerging.
