The Buhari Group, (BSO) has called for the arrest of Mr. Femi Fani-Kayode, the Director, Media, Peoples Democratic Party Presidential Campaign Organisation, for announcing unofficial results.
Speaking at a news conference in Abuja on Monday, the Director, Media and Information of the BSO, Dr. Chidia Maduekwe, urged security agencies to show their neutrality by arresting Fani-Kayode because the only authority permitted to announce election results is the Independent National Electoral Commission.
According to Mauekwe, Fani-Kayode had breached relevant sections of the Electoral Act by announcing speculative results on Sunday that the PDP was leading in the presidential election in 23 states of the federation.
“We ask the security agencies to immediately arrest Fani-Kayode for breaching relevant sections of the Electoral Act which forbids any organ outside INEC from officially declaring election results.
“His arrest for further questioning will be a clear indication that the security agencies are truly unbiased participants in this electoral process.
“His declaration is also a breach of both the first and second Abuja Peace Accord signed by the presidential candidates,’’ Maduekwe said.
