I am not plain­tiff in case to stop PDP con­ven­tion — Me­tuh

Daily Trust - - INSIDE POLITICS - By Saawua Terzungwe

The for­mer na­tional public­ity sec­re­tary of the Peoples Demo­cratic Party (PDP), Chief Olisa Me­tuh, has de­nied be­ing one of the plain­tiffs in a case seek­ing to stop the Au­gust 17 na­tional con­ven­tion of the party as re­ported in the me­dia.

Me­tuh said he should at this time be left out of in­tra-party con­tro­ver­sies, ex­plain­ing that he is only pre­oc­cu­pied with mat­ters con­cern­ing his health and the ex­tant court trial.

It was re­ported that the sacked na­tional chair­man of the PDP, Se­na­tor Ali Modu Sher­iff, a for­mer na­tional sec­re­tary of the party, Prof Wale Oladipo and Chief Me­tuh among oth­ers, ap­proached an Abuja High Court seek­ing an or­der to stop the sched­uled PDP con­ven­tion slated for Port Har­court, Rivers State.

But Me­tuh, in a state­ment yes­ter­day, by his spe­cial as­sis­tant, Richard Ihediwa, said he was not part of the suit and never in­structed any­one to file any such suit on his be­half.

He said he had con­sulted those who went to court and had been re­li­ably in­formed that his name was listed in er­ror, adding that they have promised to rec­tify it, ac­cord­ingly.
