The tweet read: “The attention of the All Progressives Congress has been drawn to a purported membership registration website, http://www.apcregistration.com. The website is unauthorised and a scam.”

About three weeks ago, the APC denied reaching out to Pastor Reno Omokri, via micro-blogging site, Twitter.

Omokri, a media aide to former president Goodluck Jonathan, had tweeted that the ruling party was making entreaties to him via its Twitter page.

In a statement sent to Legit.ng by its assistant director, publicity, Edegbe Odemwingie, the party disowned one Philip Obin, who handles the @APCNigeria Twitter account and denied reaching out to Omokri.
