The All Progressives Congress (APC) has dissociated itself from an online membership registration website, apcregistration.com.
In a statement issued by Yekini Nabena, acting national publicity secretary of the ruling party, APC said internal investigation by the party showed that its opponents were behind the website.
“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 statement read.
“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 election.
“We have deliberately not named the political party and hereby call on relevant security agencies to urgently investigate the website and its sponsors.”
Nabena urged APC members and supporters to take advantage of the ongoing nationwide membership registration exercise and regularise their membership to enable the party issue them permanent membership cards.
