Olisa Metuh has revealed he is not part of Ali Modu Sheriff’s quest to forcefully take over the leadership of the main opposition party in Nigeria, People’s Democratic Party.

Chief Olisa Metuh
A former National Publicity Secretary of the Peoples Democratic Party, Chief Olisa Metuh, has opened up on his current health status which has sidelined him from the activities of the party which has been afflicted with leadership crisis between former Borno Governor, Senator Ali Modu Sheriff and the Board of Trustees-led committee of Ahmed Markafi.
His revelation was part of a reaction to Sheriff’s recent plot against the party in which Metuh dissociated himself from a court action instituted the factional National Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party, and others seeking to stop the party from going ahead with the August 17 national convention.

Metuh, who is currently undergoing a trial for alleged corruption, said he was surprised to see his name as one of the plaintiffs in the suit seeking to halt the convention, Punch reports.

Metuh, who stated this in a statement issued by his aide, Mr. Richard Ihediwa, in Abuja on Thursday, said his concern now was his health and his cases in court.

The former scribe battling with an alleged spinal cord injury said he never instructed anyone to file any such suit on his behalf.

The statement said, “For the avoidance of doubt,  Metuh has taken the pains to consult those that went to court and has been reliably informed that his name was listed in error and which they have promised to rectify accordingly.

“It is pertinent to mention that Metuh has not attended any political meeting and/or programme since his chair accident at a function at the party’s national secretariat (of the PDP ) in April wherein he aggravated his spinal cord ailment.

“Our appeal to all and sundry therefore is that Metuh at this time should be left out of intra-party controversies. His only preoccupation now remains matters concerning his health and the extant court trial.”
