Nigeria’s ruling party, APC in the wake of its account being hacked by a US-based hacker on Saturday has opened new website, Twitter, Facebook, Instagram and Youtube accounts.
The party’s popular handle @APCNigeria, was hacked on Saturday with claims by the hacker that he bought the account from President Buhari. Now the party has opened new social media accounts.
The National Publicity Secretary of the party, Bolaji Abdullahi via twitter distanced the party from the hacked twitter handle.
He tweeted, “For the umpteenth time, @APCNigeria IS NOT the official Twitter handle of the All Progressives Congress (APC). In several official statements, we have disclaimed that handle. We view this latest development as a case of criminal impersonation.”
In a statement released by Abdullahi, the party said the new website and social media handles will keep members of the public updated on the accomplishments and events of the party.
The statement reads, “The newly-designed website features a streamlined and uncluttered design, offering user-friendly functionality and rich content. This website as well as the official social media accounts offer quick and easy access to essential information and features to keep party members, the media and indeed the general public abreast of party activities, the APC-led federal government and APC-governed states. Visitors are encouraged to explore the new website and sign up for APC’s mailing list and newsletter to receive direct emails on the Contact Us page. Also follow the APC on the listed social media accounts.”
