The former National Publicity Secretary of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Chief Olisa Metuh, has donated a fully furnished Office complex to the Nnewi North Chapter of the party, at the weekend.
While declaring the office which was built by the former spokesman open, Metuh canvassed for political solution over the arrest and incarceration of Mazi Nnamdi Kanu and the situations that constitute unrest in the South East.
The former PDP spokesperson said that he is in total support of the South East National Assembly Caucus in its initiatives to provide political solutions on matters related to Nnamdi Kanu and the restiveness in the region.
Insisting that all hands must be on the deck on issues of the Southeast, Metuh called on the governors and other leaders of the region to join in providing political solutions to the plight of Ndi Igbo so as to ensure peace and security in the zone.
“I, Chief Olisa Metuh is here to give my 100% support to the South East National Assembly Caucus on its iniatiatives to provide a political solution to the arrest of Mazi Nnamdi Kanu and the situations that constitute unrest in South East Nigeria.
“I call on the southeast governors’ forum to join in providing political solutions to the plight of Ndi Igbo so as to ensure a peaceful zone for our people. Nnamdi Kanu is an Igbo man and our son, He has not stolen before nor has he killed anyone before and hence we must stand for him as our son”, Metuh stated.
The PDP leader also pleaded with the youths to restrain from acts of destruction as well as review the incessant sit-at-home orders, noting that such is crippling the southeast as well as shutting down the economy and local enterprise in the area.
“Our Youths must understand that for Ndi Igbo to have achieved what we achieved in South East today, was totally through personal hardwork and contributions of individuals. Hence, we must not destroy our own or continue this incessant sit-at-home-orders that is crippling our economy and our local enterprises”, he said.
Metuh also urged members of the PDP in Anambra to remain united and refrain from politics of bitterness and acrimony especially as the party prepares for the November 6 governorship election in the state.
