“We have discovered that these enemies of democracy whose paymasters are very uncomfortable with Chief Olisa Metuh’s sterling performance as the National Publicity Secretary as well as his unwavering loyalty and commitment to the party and its leadership are determined to use every means to stop his re-election.

Indeed there is a valid judgment of a court of competent jurisdiction affirming the eligibility of Chief Metuh to seek election into the said office and any other party position for that matter.
