A former Governor of Ekiti State, Ayodele Fayose has accused the All Progressives Congress (APC) led Federal Government of planning to jam all networks ahead of the Saturday election.
Fayose, who accused the FG of doing this same thing during the governorship election in Ekiti State said the equipment for the plot arrived the country from Israel last week and the test run was done on Thursday and Friday.
The former governor disclosed this in a release issued on Tuesday evening by his Media Aide, Lere Olayinka.
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.
“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.
“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.”
