APC has accused President Jonathan’s administration and PDP of planning to render card readers ineffective on election days through the use of jammers. The party in a statement issued in Lagos yesterday by its National Publicity Secretary, Alhaji Lai Mohammed said
the sinister move was geared towards justifying their fears about the use of the card readers and ultimately to scuttle the polls.
It said the PDP has placed an order for 75,000 pieces of the jammers at a cost of $200 per piece, bringing the total cost to $15 million, adding that the jammers will be air freighted to Nigeria next week. APC said, “They have hired an Israeli, Gyora Berger, to do the dirty job of jamming the card readers. The Israeli was hired specifically to develop 3 prototype card reader jammers, and he has now developed three of such jammers (25m, 50m and 100m range)
To those who might accuse us of crying wolf, they should realize that every alarm we have raised in the past has been true, including that the Jonathan administration was pushing for the postponement of the elections and that they are mortally afraid of the use of PVCs and card readers.”
It’s to be carried in the pockets of trusted PDP stalwarts on election days with a view to disabling the card readers within the states. The party said that apart from disabling the card readers, the jammers will also disable all telephones, iPads, etc within the states of those carrying them on their persons.
“The plan is to deploy the card jammers to the areas deemed to be the strongholds of the APC, such as the North-west, North-east, North-central and the South-west,” the statement added…. let’s jst allow GEJ to continue till 2019 without any election. #my2cents…….
