E.O.D: PDP shuts down Facebook,twitter accounts

The Peoples Democratic Party on
Monday shut down its twitter and facebook accounts following a hacking incident.

According to the party, the two social
media accounts were used by the hackers to post unauthorised
statements,which did not emanate from the PDP.

This was contained in a statement by
the party’s National Publicity Secretary,
Chief Olisa Metuh, in Abuja. The party said,

“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 overhaul of the system.

“The foregoing is pursuant to our
determination to rebuild and reposition
our great party, instill discipline in our
fold, check unnecessary divergences
and put the PDP on a strong footing to
regain power in 2019.”

The PDP also said it observed that the affected new media handles – facebook and twitter accounts – were hacked and
used to release a series of unauthorised statements.
