The All Progressives Congress (APC) has raised an alarm over a purported national membership registration website on trending on social media.
In a statement by its Acting National Publicity Secretary, Yekini Nabena, it said the website: apcregistration.com was unauthorised, describing it as a scam aimed at defrauding millions of its supporters in the country.
It declared that the fake website was sponsored by one of the opposition political parties in its desperate plot to harvest APC’s members ahead of the 2019 general elections.
Urging its supporters to take advantage of the ongoing continuous nationwide membership registration exercise in the 36 states and the Federal Capital Territory (FCT), Abuja, the party urged security agencies to urgently investigate those behind the website and its sponsors.
The registration exercise includes fresh registrations and revalidation of existing members for the purposes of issuance of its permanent membership cards.
The party also reiterated its call on the National Assembly to urgently do the needful by reconvening to consider and pass the 2019 election budget of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC).
Condemning any attempts to weaken INEC ahead of the 2019 elections, it urged the electorate to resist desperate politicians who are bent on deploying illegal, undemocratic and sinister means to manipulate elections.
