The All Progressives Congress has dissociated itself from promoters of an online membership registration website — apcregistration.com.
The party said its ongoing membership registration exercise had nothing to do with the website.
This was contained in a statement signed by the APC acting National Publicity Secretary, Mr. Yekini Nabena, in Abuja on Sunday.
The APC statement read in part: “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.
“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 supporters and members to take advantage of the ongoing Continuous Nationwide membership registration exercise in all 36 States and the Federal Capital Territory and regularise their membership to enable the party issue them permanent membership cards.
