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