APC alerts public to fake registration website

Aanya Igomu, Abuja


Nigeria’s governing party, the All Progressives Congress, APC is alerting the public of a fake membership registration website attributed to it.

The APC says that the website which is known as apcregistration.com and has been trending on social media is unauthorised and a scam.

The party made this known in a press statement released by its Acting National Publicity Secretary, Mr. Yekini Nabena.

It further called on relevant security agencies to investigate the website.

“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” the statement read in part.

The APC further called on its supporters 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 purpose of issuance of the Party’s permanent membership cards.
