After Being Shunned By Atiku, Olisa Metuh Dumps PDP, Says He’s Quit Partisanship

Must read

Olisa Metuh, a former national publicity secretary of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, has resigned his membership from the party, saying he can no longer participate in Nigerian politics.

This moves comes after Metuh was shunned as the campaign co-ordinator for Anambra for the Presidential Campaign Council for the state by Atiku Abubakar.

According to our findings, Metuh lobbied intensely for the role and lost it to Obiora Okonkwo, a former governorship candidate in the state.  Ironically, Metuh worked for Okonkwo during the 2021 PDP governorship primary in the state.

Metuh’s resignation was contained in a letter addressed to the PDP national chairman, Dr Iyochia Ayu, dated October 26 on Wednesday, October 26, 2022.

He also said he has submitted a copy of the resignation letter to the ward chairman of the party in his home State of Anambra.

Metuh titled the letter: “Resignation From The PDP” and said he would dedicate his time to contributing to the good governance of Nigerian without playing partisan politics.

The letter read, “During my three weeks trip for medical and personal reasons, I came to the realization that I can no longer play partisan politics in Nigeria. The reason for this decision is from my experience and the nature of politics and development in Nigeria.

“I believe that I will contribute more to Democracy and good governance in Nigeria by being non-partisan. Being a Non-Partisan gives me the status to work for the strategic interest and well-being of the Nigerian people without the hindrance of partisanship.

“In that regard, I write respectfully, to formally inform you of my resignation from the PDP and cessation of partisan politics.

“I have duly enjoyed my membership of the PDP and remain proud of being the longest elected member of the National Executive Committee, one who won election to serve in several national positions at six (6) consecutive National Conventions of the Party. I will cherish the values and ideals learnt from the founding fathers at the inception of our nascent democracy.

“Any future participation in politics will only be limited to non-partisan involvements in areas of sustaining and deepening democracy and governance in Nigerian and at the global level.

“I pray you continue to insist on issue-based engagement in our political space as the country cannot afford the bitterness and divisions that may arise otherwise.

“In line with the constitution of the PDP, I have forwarded a copy of my resignation to my ward Chairman. May God bless us all.”
