Former Peoples Democratic Party spokesman, Olisa Metuh, has resigned from the party over what he described as partisan politics.
Metuh, in a letter dated October 25, 2022, and addressed to the PDP National Chairman, Iyorchia Ayu, said he believes he will be able to contribute better to the country’s democracy, by being non-partisan.
The former PDP spokesman, who said he has forwarded his resignation letter to his ward chairman, said he would always cherish the values learnt from the founding fathers of the opposition party.
The letter read in part, “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 of partisan politics…
“Any future participation in politics will only be limited to non-partisan involvements in areas of sustaining and deepening democracy and governance in Nigerian and at the global level.
“I pray you continue to insist on issue-based engagement in our political space as the country cannot afford the bitterness and divisions that may arise otherwise.”
