A group within the All Progressives Party (APC) has inaugurated “The Broom’’ as a social media website to further the campaign of the party ahead 2015 general elections.
A statement issued on Sunday in Abuja by Dr Tom Ohikere, the group’s team leader, said the platform could be accessed via www.broomplatform.org.ng. It said the platform was inaugurated to complement and consolidate APC’s 2015 campaign efforts.
It also said that the platform would be used to engage APC presidential aspirants in debates with the electorate, particularly the delegates to the party’s national convention, on their manifestos.
“The Broom platform is a debate and discuss group which shall attract millions of Nigerians daily; it is a social weapon in the quest for the required political orientation of Nigeria.
“It will on a daily basis provide them with a comprehensive knowledge of issues relating to the presidential elections.
“It will further complement and consolidate the campaign efforts of our great party, as the media, particularly the social media, will be in the forefront of the presidential elections,’’ the statement said.
According to the statement, apart from the online debate, the platform is linked to all the APC states nationwide to project their achievements and APC’s accomplishments.
It said the platform would also engage the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and the Transformation Ambassadors of Nigeria (TAN), in objective and qualitative debates on issues bordering on 2015 elections.
