Metuh Issues First Public Statement After Release from Prison


The National Publicity Secretary of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Mr Olisa Metuh has issued his first public statement following his release from prison on Thursday.

In his first public statement since leaving the Kuje prison, Metuh said the PDP has since overcome the initial trauma that accompanied the electoral setback of the 2015 general elections, and is now poised to regain power at the center in 2019.

According to him, the “recent variance of voices” from its members is as a result of the party’s foundation of liberal democracy, which he described as a mark of strength, adding that the party has adequate internal mechanisms to resolve all issues within its fold.

The comments were contained in his opening remark at a meeting of the party’s Publicity Directorate with some visiting parliamentarians from the United Kingdom, led by Mark Field, member of Parliament and Chairman of International Office of the Conservative Party, and Colin Bloom, Director of Outreach-BCP in Abuja on Friday.
