Femi Fani-KayodeThe Buhari Support Organisations has called for the arrest of Chief Femi Fani-Kayode, spokesperson for the Peoples Democratic Party Presidential Campaign Organisation, for announcing unofficial results for the recently concluded presidential election.

The Director, Media and Information of the BSO, Dr. Chidia Maduekwe, made the call on Monday in Abuja at a press conference.

According to Maduekwe, the time for security agencies to show their neutrality is now by arresting Fani-Kayode because the only authority to announce election results is the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC).

The organisation claimed that Fani-Kayode had breached relevant sections of the Electoral Act by announcing 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.

While calling on the international community and observers to note the steps being taken by the ruling party to cause severe breach of peace and call them to order, the BSO urged All Progressives Congress supporters to maintain the peace as they await the official announcement of authentic INEC results for the Saturday elections.

“We ask Nigerians to join us in saying `No’ to this recent manifestation of habitual impunity.

“We appeal to all our numerous supporters to sustain their calmness in the face of current provocation and abuse of our electoral processes”, he said.

Maduekwe said that APC would reject “in its entirety, the use of security to compromise an election process that has been commended as having high quotient of integrity”.

He also urged the INEC to adhere strictly to guidelines for elections which protected candidates through active participation of party agents.

“We request INEC to adhere to the guideline which makes it mandatory for polling unit party agents to sign result sheet forming the basis for collation of result at collation centres”.
