The All Progressive Congress (APC) have raised alarm over conspiracy to harvest it members ahead of the 2019 general elections through the introduction of a fake website, apcregistration.com.
Mr Yekini Nabena, the National Publicity Secretary of the party raised the concern in Abuja on Sunday, in a statement.
Nabena, who accused the opposition party of sponsoring those behind the fraud, stated that the site was not authorized by the authority of the party.
“We alert our supporters, members, and indeed the general public about 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,” the party said.
It urged its teeming supporters and members to take advantage of the on-going nationwide APC membership registration in the 36 states of the federation and the FCT to register.
According to the party, the exercise will include both fresh registrations and revalidation of existing membership for the purposes of issuance of its permanent membership cards.
