The All Progressives Congress (APC) has described as fake an online registration website ‘apcregistration.com’.
The party, in a statement issued yesterday by the acting national publicity Secretary, Yekini Nabena, cautioned party supporters, members and indeed the general public against registering on the purported website, saying website which is trending on social media is unauthorised and a scam.
“Our internal investigation has revealed that the fake website is sponsored by one of the main opposition political parties in its desperate and criminal plot to harvest APC members ahead of the 2019 General Elections.
“We have deliberately not named the political party and hereby call on relevant security agencies to urgently investigate the website and its sponsors.
“We urge our teeming supporters and members to take advantage of the ongoing Continuous Nationwide Membership Registration exercise in all 36 States and the Federal Capital Territory (FCT).
“The exercise will include both fresh registrations and revalidation of existing membership for the purposes of issuance of the Party’s permanent membership cards”, it said.
