The national leadership of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), yesterday, alerted members of the party and the general public of a fake online registration portal- www.pdpmembership.org/register, stating that the portal neither belongs to the party or is the party associated with it.
In a statement signed by Richard Ihediwa, special assistant to the party’s National Publicity Secretary, Chief Olisa Metuh, the PDP raised alarm that the brains behind the fake portal have been requesting Nigerians to register as members of the party through an electronically guided form.
The statement read: “The PDP states categorically that this online portal does not belong to it, neither is it associated to the party. The fake registration portal has nothing to do with it at any level and in anyway whatsoever.
“For the avoidance of doubt, the PDP has not commenced its proposed online registration of members and will adequately and officially inform the public through its relevant organs once it is ready for such.
“We therefore caution all 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.”
