The People's Democratic Party (PDP) has announced the shutting down of its official and verified Twitter account, @PdpNigeria, saying it has been compromised.

Head of PDP Publicity Division, Chinwe Nnorom, made the announcement on Tuesday, April 19, in a statement via the PDP’s Facebook page.

She said a new twitter account would be communicated to the public soon.

“The general public may wish to recall that the official twitter handle of our great Party, the Peoples Democratic Party, @PDPNigeria was compromised sometime last year and a statement was issued to that regard to alert unsuspecting members of the public," the statement said.

“However, in view of the recent activities on the handle, I have been directed again to emphasize the shutdown of this twitter account.

“All tweets and any communication from the handle @PDPNigeria does not represent the views of the Party forthwith. We will inform the general public of a new twitter account soon. Thanks for your understanding.”
