The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has closed its social media accounts (Twitter and Facebook) after hackers took over and posted unauthorized releases.
According to the party, the two social media accounts were used by the hackers to post unauthorised releases which did not emanate from the PDP. This includes Sunday’s post quoting the party as accepting responsibility for failure in the last 16 years.
In a statement signed by the party’s National Publicity Secretary, Chief Olisa Metuh, in Abuja.
The party said:
Contrary to the statement, the party had a robust record of achievements in all sectors of our national life within the period.
“To halt the embarrassing trend in our social media handles, the party has decided to decommission our official twitter and Facebook accounts for now, to pave the way for proper overhauling of the system.
“The foregoing is pursuant to our determination to rebuild and re-position our great party, instill discipline in our fold, check unnecessary divergences and put the party on a strong footing to regain power in 2019.”
