The ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) has raised an alert that a fake website for the registration of its party members has been discovered.
This was contained in a statement signed by its acting National Publicity Secretary, Mr. Yekini Nabena, made available on Sunday.
“We alert our supporters, members and indeed the general public to a purported membership registration website of the All Progressives Congress (APC) — apcregistration.com.
“The 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,” it stated.
APC said that they have deliberately not named the political party and hereby call on relevant security agencies to urgently investigate the website and its sponsors.
Meanwhile, the party urged its 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 concluded.
