Fresh Tsunami Hits PDP as National Officers Revolt


*Ask Metuh, Mohammed, others to step down

“They must bear full responsibility for their actions and must henceforth refrain from dragging the name of the party into the mud.”

Dr. Bello Haliru Mohammed

Another crisis is brewing in the Peoples Democratic Party [PDP] with some elected national officers calling on the acting chairman of the board of trustees, Bello Mohammed and the national publicity secretary, Olisa Metuh, to step down from their offices.

This was stated in a statement signed by four of the national officers, which they also said represented the views of all deputy national officers and some members of the National Executive Committee of the party, was sequel to the ongoing trial of Messrs. Mohammed and Metuh over corruption allegations.

Messrs Metuh and Mohammed are being tried for receiving monies from the embattled former National Security Adviser, Sambo Dasuki, out of the $2.1 billion meant for arms procurement but which was diverted to political spending.

The statement, made available on Monday, was signed by Dennis Alonge-Niyi, the deputy national youth leader; Bashir Maidugu, the deputy national legal adviser; Okey Nnaedozie, the deputy national organizing secretary and Abdullahi Jalo, the deputy national publicity secretary.

The national officers called on all relevant members and organs of the party to rescue it “from fortune hunters who have hijacked its very soul.”

They said, “We hereby strongly dissociate the Peoples Democratic Party from the ongoing trials of Dr. Bello Halliru Mohammed (Acting Chairman of Board of Trustees) and Chief Olisa Metuh (National Publicity Secretary) on various charges anti-graft agencies.

“They are said to have received funds using accounts of their private companies without the knowledge and instructions of any organ of the party. 

“All those mentioned in the ongoing corruption trial are, therefore, on their own and the party was not involved financially or in any way with the office of the National Security Adviser, ONSA, or any organ of the federal government in the last regime.

“They must bear full responsibility for their actions and must henceforth refrain from dragging the name of the party into the mud.”
