The official Twitter handle of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) has been sold.
Philip Obin may have sold the Twitter handle for $2,000 to another user who’s now trolling Muhammadu Buhari’s official handle.
The Twitter handle, which has 718 followers is now being used to tweet bitcoin.
The APC had disowned its official Twitter handle and the operator, Philip Obin following a scandal over a private conversation with a former aide of former President Goodluck Jonathan.
In an e-mailed statement to The Trent on Friday, April 6, 2018, the APC denounced the attempts by the Twitter handle to engage Reno Omokri.
“The attention of the All Progressives Congress (APC) has been drawn to false allegations by a Mr. Reno Omokri, which was contained in an April 5, 2018 report published on the website of Vanguard Newspapers, titled: ‘APC secretly reaching out to me for friendship – Reno’,” the statement signed by Edegbe Odemwingie, the assistant director of publicity for the party read.
“The report shows that Mr. Omokri’s allegation is based on interactions he had on Twitter with one Philip Obin who manages a Twitter handle, “@APCNigeria”.
