…Says He Worked Hard to Stabilize the Party
The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) congratulates its former National Publicity Secretary, Chief Olisa Metuh, as he celebrates his 56th birthday, describing him as a courageous democrat and party man who made sacrifices for the stability of the PDP.
Our party deeply appreciates Chief Metuh’s sacrifices and dedication to the PDP, particularly, his fearless stand in holding forth and lifting the banner of hope after the unfortunate loss of the 2015 general elections.
Despite the threats and harassments, Chief Metuh remained a strong and undeterred voice of opposition, in exposing the failures of the government of the day, constructively projecting our party’s alternatives and options for good governance while demanding the democratic tenets of transparency, accountability, fairness, social justice and personal liberty of citizens.
The PDP notes Chief Metuh’s effort, as a political strategist, in rallying and galvanizing party formations across the country both in government and in opposition.
This is in addition to his commitment in providing the platform for the nurturing of our youths in political participation as well as laying a firm foundation for building a very strong social media army in our party.
Moreover, Chief Metuh, who is the longest serving member of the National Executive Committee (NEC) had remained a loyal party man and never allowed the travails he suffered as the spokesman of our party to detract from his commitment to the ideals of the PDP particularly in the quest to rescue our nation from the misrule of the APC.
Our party joins family members, relations, friends and associates in felicitating with Chief Metuh at this auspicious occasion and prays to God to bless him with many more decades in good health and sound mind.
