PDP Workers Rebellion: I’m The Primary Target, Metuh Claims

Olisa-MetuhThe National Publicity Secretary of Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, Chief Olisa Metuh, said, yesterday that he is the target of some elements within and outside the party because of his readiness to lead a strong opposition against the All Progressives Congress, APC, led federal government.

The PDP spokesman, who described the accusation by some staff of the party under the aegis of PDP Staff Welfare Association that he worked against the re-election of former President Goodluck Jonathan as laughable, vowed that no amount of campaign against him and attack on his person would make him bow out of statutory function as the mouthpiece of the opposition party.

Metuh said he was fully aware of the challenges that come with his new role of providing firm, issue-based opposition, just as he decried the resort to dirty politics by those he described as anti-PDP forces, instead of focusing on issues, adding that their actions were not only shameful, but also a despicable act of cowardice.

A statement yesterday by his Media Assistant, Richard Ihediwa, noted the incessant and unnecessary attacks on Metuh, targeted to make him resign as the mouthpiece of the PDP.

“For the avoidance of doubt, we wish to place on record that at no time did the National Publicity Secretary receive any money or monies from the immediate past President, Dr. Goodluck Jonathan, before, during or after the 2015 campaigns for media and publicity functions or for any other reason whatsoever”, his media aide said.
