FG Plans To Jam Telecoms On Saturday, Fayose Raises Alarm

…..equipment imported from Israel, tested last week Thursday and Friday,

Former Governor of Ekiti State, Ayodele Fayose has raised the

alarm over plot by the All Progressives Congress-led Federal Government to jam all

telecommunications networks from 5am on Saturday till 5pm on Sunday,

thus making it impossible for use of internet and phone calls during

the Presidential and National Assembly elections.

Fayose, who is also the Southwest Coordinator of the Atiku/Obi PDP

Presidential Campaign Council said the equipment for the sinister plot

arrived the country from Israel last week and test run was done on

Thursday and Friday.

He added that “I am in my house and even if they put gun in my head, I

won’t keep silent at this time because this same strategy was used in

Ekiti state during the 2018 governorship election.

The former governor, who made this known in a release issued on

Tuesday evening said all Nigerians and the international community must rise

 in defence of democracy and the country.

He said; “During the governorship election in Ekiti State, they jammed

telecoms networks 3km radius around the State government house and my

hometown, Afao Ekiti.

“My telephone lines and those of people around me were also engaged

with fake calls from 5am on July 21, 2018 till 5am on July 22, 2019.

“This time around, they want to repeat the same by jamming all

networks, especially in States where they intend to rig on Saturday so

that Nigerians won’t be able to publish polling units results on

social media and also communicate with media houses to expose rigging.

“As at this moment, the jamming equipment brought from Israel is in

the country and was demonstrated last week Thursday and Friday.”

Fayose, who said no amount of sinister plots by the APC led federal

government will prevent Nigerians from freeing themselves from the

present regime of bondage, added that “Nigerians are resolute, they

have made up their minds to vote and make sure that their votes count

on Saturday. Jamming telecoms services will not work and it will be

vehemently resisted.”
