[Olisa Metuh, PDP NPS]
The faction of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Anambra state led by Prince Ken Emeakayi has reacted sharply to the suspension of the party’s National Publicity
Secretary [NPS], Chief Olisa Metuh form the party.
A press statement was issued late yesterday and signed by about eight factional Local Government chairmen including Chief Jude Osude – Chairman PDP Anambra South Zone; Osita Igbokwe – Chairman PDP Aguata Local Government.
Others are Gozie Igwe – Chairman PDP Ekwusigo Local Government and Chief Emma Obilakaba – Chairman PDP Ihiala Local Government, amongst others.
It stated that the purported suspension of Metuh did not emanate from either his Otolo Ward 1 or any of the Wards and LGA in Anambra South Senatorial District and not from PDP Anambra State.
Rather, he said that it was the handiwork of agents of All Progressive Congress (APC) in their desperate attempts to bring down at all cost the Leader of PDP in Anambra State, Chief Olisa Metuh.
They also threw a challenge to the authors to publish their names, pointing out that no amount of blackmail, harassment and intimidation from the APC and their agents can deter and distract our Leader Chief Olisa Metuh.
They insisted that Metuh has an ongoing task of rebuilding, remobilization and repositioning of PDP to reclaim Anambra State in the forthcoming election.
