NIGERIA’S ruling political party, the All Progressive Congress (APC) has finally unveiled the official website and social media accounts of the party.
The party made this known in a statement on Sunday by its National Publicity Secretary, Bolaji Abdullahi.
This is after five years of its creation with no officially known social media account. One of its supporters created a twitter account @APCNigeria during the formation of the party in 2013 and has been using the handle to promote activities of the party during the 2015 general election. Efforts to get him to hand over the handle to party leadership proved abortive.
The party had on several instances acknowledged it had no official social media presence after distancing itself from the Twitter handle, @APCNigeria.
This same account on Saturday made several controversial tweets with many believing the account was hacked.
However the account later tweeted that it was now being used for bitcoin advertisements.
The new APC website and media accounts are: www.officialapcng.com; Twitter, https://twitter.com/OfficialAPCNg; Facebook, https://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.
