Metuh, NWC Members Not On Ondo Govt Payroll, Says PDP

Olisa-MetuhThe Ondo State chapter of Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, has denied an accusation by the All Progressives Congress that the National Publicity Secretary of PDP, Olisa Metuh, and other members of the party’s national working committee, were on the payroll of the state government.
The PDP described the allegation as false and criminal.
The Ondo PDP spokesman, Mr. Banji Okunomo, who reacted to the allegation in a chat with journalists in Akure, the state capital on Tuesday, said the APC enjoyed telling the people of the state lies in order to tarnish the credibility of the government of Dr. Olusegun Mimiko.
Okunomo said, “This allegation is also absolutely criminal as it is intended to tarnish the credibility of both the state government and the personality of Olisa Metuh. It is also criminal as it is not only libellous but a false information which carries a jail term”.
The PDP said that the personalities accused would take legal action against the APC Publicity Secretary, Omoba Adesanya, who made the allegation in a statement on Monday.
The party said the APC spokesman had no shred of evidence to back his claims as he (Adesanya) depended on “the rumor mill, gossip and beer parlour chat as his veritable source of information”.
He said, “We need to let the people know that the APC Publicity Secretary in Ondo State is a barefaced liar whose understanding of his role as the publicity secretary of that party is absolutely suspect. He needs further education to understand the fact that his position does not confer on him the right to propagate lies, but to build its profile, promote and sustain same.
“Rather than indulge in falsehood, the APC should be absolutely worried about the fact that it lied to Nigerians to believe that it would bring a radical development to the nation and all it has done so far is to fail to take off, thereby putting the nation in reverse gear”.
