THE leadership of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, has alerted all members of the party and the general public of a fake online portal: www.pdpmembership.org/register; claiming to be of the PDP and demanding Nigerians to register as members of the party through an electronically guided form.
The PDP, in a statement signed by Richard Ihediwa, special assistant, to the national publicity secretary, disowned the online portal saying it “does not belong to it; is not associated to it, and has nothing to do with it at any level and in anyway whatsoever.”
Besides, the statement said that the PDP was yet to commence its proposed online registration of members and that members of the public would be adequately and officially informed through its relevant organs once it was ready for such.
“We, therefore, caution all the PDP members, teeming supporters and the general public to take note and not patronize this fake online registration portal ostensibly set up by fraudsters to dupe the unsuspecting public.
“Already, the leadership of our great party is contacting relevant security agencies for a comprehensive investigation to unravel those behind this criminal act,” the statement said.
