Olisa Metuh resigns from PDP

A former National publicity secretary of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Chief Olisa Metuh has resigned from the party.

In a letter to the party, chief Metuh said he had decided to become non-partisan so that he could contribute more to the development of the country.

Any future participation in politics would, he explained, only be limited to non-partisan involvement in areas of “sustaining and deepening democracy and governance in Nigeria” and globally.

Chief Metuh advised the PDP leadership to continue to insist on issue-based engagement in the political space as the country could not afford bitterness and division.

Chief Metuh ranks as the longest-serving elected member of the PDP National Executive Committee.
