Olisa Metuh, former National Publicity Secretary of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Wednesday, resigned from the party. He also quitted partisan politics, citing the need to contribute to the nation’s building “without the hindrance of partisanship.”
In a letter dated October 25th, 2022 and addressed to the party’s National Chairman, Metuh said a copy of his resignation letter has been transmitted to his ward chairman in line with the provision of the PDP Constitution.
Olisa Metuh in the letter titled, “Resignation from the PDP,” stated that his decision to say his goodbyes to the party was taken in the course of his recent medical trip abroad.
The letter read: “During my three weeks trip for medical and personal reasons, I came to the realization that I can no longer play partisan politics in Nigeria. The reason for this decision is that from my experience and the nature of politics and development in Nigeria, I believe that I will contribute more to democracy and good governance in Nigeria by being non-partisan.
“Being non-partisan gives me the status to work for the strategic interest and well-being of the Nigerian people without the hindrance of partisanship.
“In that regard, I write respectfully, to formally inform you of my resignation from the PDP and cessation from partisan politics.
