By Chidex Onyemah
Former national publicity secretary of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP), has disclosed that the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) and President Muhammadu Buhari did not win the 2019 presidential election lost by the party’s candidate, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar.
Metuh, who made the disclosure at his home-coming party organised by the Anambra state chapter of the PDP, at the party secretariat, Awka, also urged PDP members never to allow the mistakes of the latter years repeat itself in the next general elections, come 2023.
“I must say that PDP lost in the last presidential elections but that doesn’t mean APC won We actually lost because of our carelessness and I think we have learnt our lessons. This time we are prepared and ready to take over Aso Rock but the victory must start with the November gubernatorial elections in Anambra state,” the former PDP spokesman said.
Commending the state executive, Metuh noted that there was no state chapter of the party as peaceful as the Anambra chapter, where there had not been disputes despite the numerous gubernatorial aspirants in the party.
Earlier, the state chairman of the party, Chief Ndubisi Nwobu, praised the national leader for being gallant after the abuses meted on him by the APC government. He said “I really appreciate our leader, Barrister Olisa Metuh for not running away from his fatherland, despite the persecution. Though he travelled out for proper treatment, but he is back. This shows bravery and commitment to the betterment of our land.”
Speaking with newsmen in Awka, one of the PDP members, Hon. Chris Azubogu, assured the public that the party would jointly provide a strong and better candidate for Anambra state. “We all know that our national leader and former leader, Peter Obi, is a progressive. My colleagues all aspiring for Agu Awka, are also progressives. One thing I will assure the public is that all of us as aspirants and stakeholders of the PDP in Anambra State will produce a better and stronger candidate who would give Anambra the best governance.”
