The Presidential Campaign Organisation (APCO) for the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) candidate, Atiku Abubakar, has distance itself from the supposed plans to disburse grants to unsuspecting Nigerians.
The organisation in a statement said that its attention have been drown to claims that the organisation have embarked on an on-going scheme that is meant to disburse grants to Nigerians.
“Information available to us reveal that the scheme Code-named ‘Atiku Grant Disbursement Programme’ (see link bit.ly/2NP4vup) is asking unsuspecting members of the public to contribute a certain amount of money which will be multiplied for them after they have downloaded a particular social media application.
“The APCO disclaims this scheme and any other in such manner.
“For the avoidance of doubt, the Atiku Presidential Campaign Organisation is not in any way involved in the scheme or any other in such manner and neither did it give a proxy authorisation.”
The organisation admonished Nigerians to disregard such false publication, stating that the communication has nothing to do with it.
It said the official/verified social media handles of the presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party are www.atiku.org (Blog); www.facebook.com/atiku.org (Facebook); www.twitter.com/atiku (Twitter); and www.instagram.com/aatiku (Instagram).
It also advised them to refrain from participating in any online scheme that aimed at defrauding innocent Nigerians and with the ulterior motive to embarrass the presidential campaign of Atiku Abubakar.
