APC Launches New Social Media Accounts After Hacking Debacle


The ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) has announced its newly-designed website and other official social media accounts. This comes after the party’s Twitter account was hacked into by unknown persons.

Bolaji Abdullahi, the party’s National Publicity Secretary, reiterated the claim that the hacked account @APCNigeria was not the official handle of the party.

“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,” Mr Abdullahi said.

The new APC website and media accounts are: www.officialapcng.com; Twitter, https://twitter.com/OfficialAPCNg; Facebook, https://web.facebook.com/officialapcng/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.”

The party therefore urged visitors to follow and explore the new website and sign up for APC’s mailing list and newsletter to receive direct emails on the contact us page.
