Metuh resigns as PDP Publicity Sec


olisa_metuh2A FEW hours to the National Executive Committee (NEC) meeting of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), the National Publicity Secretary of the party, Chief Olisa Metuh, resigned on Wednesday.

Other officers are expected to resign before or during the NEC meeting. If they refuse to resign, they would be sacked.

Metuh confirmed this when he said all those affected by the report of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) on the PDP convention would go.

The INEC report has indicted some of the party officials of not being legally elected.

He said: “Some will go but the National Chairman (Bamanga Tukur) is not going to resign; he is not only in office but in power. There is no controversy about his election, he is not in court. The INEC report did not say his election was flawed. He complied with the Constitution of the party and the guideline of the 2012 convention.

“I want to inform you that I am resigning as the National Publicity Secretary with effect from Thursday 20th June 2013. This resignation is in the overall interest of the party and is being done to put a final stop to the controversies generated by the INEC report on the mode of my election as National Publicity Secretary.

“I have served this party as a member of National Executive Committee for over 10 years and therefore my interest is to ensure that this party stabilises and progresses. I have written and submitted my letter. I am resigning with effect from Thursday 20th June 2013.”

Metuh appreciated President Goodluck Jonathan, Tukur, governors, members of the National Assembly, leaders of the party from the South-East and PDP elders that assisted him in office.
