After the recent hacking of a verified Twitter account popularly known for the All Progressive Party APC, the party launches its official social platforms. The verified Twitter account with the handle name @APCNigeria with over 700,000 followers was hacked on Saturday has been dismissed by Bolaji Abdullahi that it is the APC account.
The account followed by many Nigerians and APC supporters was hacked by a name Justin Sun. The handle’s name has been changed at least 3 times with “APC F*ck, Just Sun and currently with the name Electra Coin (ECA)”.
Bolaji Abdullahi, the National Publicity Secretary of APC, uses his Twitter account to discredit the @APCNigeria as the party’s handle. However, the All Progressive Party launched a new website for the party, new Twitter account, Instagram and Youtube accounts.
Bolaji Abdullahi tweeted: “For the umpteenth 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.”
On Sunday, on his social media account, Bolaji Abdullahi unveiled the new accounts of the ruling party on various social media platforms.
According to the Channel TV; Abdulahi said, “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 offer 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.”
Bolaji Abdullahi continued; “Visitors are encouraged to explore the new website and sign up for APC’s mailing list and newsletter to receive direct emails on the Contact Us page. Also, follow the APC on the listed social media accounts.”
