Olisa Metuh_PDPThe National Publicity Secretary of Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, Chief Olisa Metuh, has said he never benefitted from any government contract during the administration of former President Goodluck Jonathan.

The opposition party spokesman, who stated this during a press briefing on Tuesday in his office at the PDP National Secretariat, Abuja, said the clarification became necessary “taking into consideration the times we find ourselves, especially as they relate to me”.

Mr. Metuh disclosed that in the last seven months, he has been “hounded, harassed, intimidated and threatened severally”.

He noted that it was in order to avoid personal and family pressure that he refrained from coming out with details of the threat to his life.

Mr. Metuh, however, stressed that based on recent information available to him, he now has cause to believe that the All Progressives Congress-led Federal Government is desperate and may have finalized plans to silence him.

“As someone who has been a private person, having not taken any public office, the choice of where, how and when to invest and conduct my personal business remains my prerogative.

“In this regard, I note that I never had any contract dealings with the immediate past Federal Government or any of its security apparatus”, Metuh said.

He pointed out that in the course of his duties as National Publicity Secretary of the PDP, former President Jonathan invited him and directed him to carry out some assignments relating to his office and which “he duly funded”.

“It is important to note that the former president was fully satisfied with the way and manner I handled the assignment”, Mr. Metuh said, and called on the present government “not use the apparatus of state power to settle personal scores”.
