Following the recent hacking into their official Twitter account, Nigeria’s ruling political party, All Progressives Congress (APC) has announced a new official website and social media accounts.
APC had earlier declared it had no official social media presence after its distanced itself from a Twitter handle, @APCNigeria.
This same account on Saturday made several controversial tweets with many believing the account was hacked.
However the account later tweeted that it was now being used for bitcoin advertisements.
The party National Publicity Secretary, Mr Abdullahi said;
“For the upteenth 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,”
The new APC website and media accounts are:
Instagram; https://www.instagram.com/officialapcng/; and
YouTube; Official APC Nigeria.
The APC said its new website will be regularly updated with news on party accomplishments and events.
“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 offers 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.”
