The National Publicity Secretary of the People’s Democratic Party(PDP), Chief Olisa Metuh has reaffirmed that the party would fully participate in this weekend’s supplementary election as the concluding part of the Nov 16 Anambra state governorship election that has already fixed by the Independent National Electoral Commission(INEC).
Speaking in an exclusive interview wit the Guardian yesterday following series of negative allusions to his alleged media outbursts that PDP was satisfied with the Nov 16 governorship election results, whereas the party’s candidate Comrade Tony Nwoye, his followers and Campaign Organization saw it contrary, Metuh stated with a level of finality and emphasis that he has no apologies to anyone. And that he has no reason to consult or take cue from any of the people talking.
According to him, “they are just enjoying their 5-minute of fame that will fizzle out next week after the weekend’s election. Thereafter, it would be their end.”
Describing them as not deserving his time, the Wadata Plaza spokesman from Anambra state noted that if the Nwoye’s men had made all the noise being made now ahead the election, that it would have been a lot helpful and useful politically to the candidate.
He also counseled them to shout and call people as many names as possible now, especially when he believed there were still some funds within the coffers of the campaign organization to spend on themselves, before there relevance expires by next week.
Metuh described them as “too infinitesimal and politically unimportant down the ladder in the scheme of things for me to exchange words or join issues with or respond t their idle talks.
“I have no reason to exchange words with them…”, he rather would leave the state chapter chairman of the party, Ken Emeakayi and the council chairman of the party to tackle them because, in his views, they do not deserve his time.
However, Emeakayi in his reaction insisted that the party was very ready and must participate actively in the coming weekend’s INEC supplementary election in the state.
The PDP governorship candidate Nwoye through the Director General of his Campaign Organization, Prince Victor Ezenwa has insisted he would not participate in the scheduled Nov 30 supplementary election, pointing out that such was alien to the electoral history of the nation. And that only the outright cancellation of the Nov election which he described as a sham was good enough to them.
