APC denies publishing plagiarized manifesto, says website was hacked
Nigeria’s ruling political party, the All Progressive Congress (APC), has issued a statement with claims that its website has been hacked.
The Guardian newspaper had in the early hours of Saturday, published a report with claims that the party (APC) has published a plagiarised manifesto on its website.
However, the party’s spokesman, Lanre Issa-Onilu in the statement issued on Saturday, accused “desperate people” of plotting evil against the APC.
“Our attention has just been drawn to the fact that the APC’s official website, apc.com.ng has been hacked with unauthorised content posted on our pages.
“I have instructed that the site is taken down. Steps are underway to clean it up, strengthen the security, and restore it as soon as possible.
We won’t allow the desperate people to succeed in their evil plots.”
