The National Publicity Secretary of the opposition Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Olisa Metuh has declared he never had any contract dealings with the immediate past Federal Government (FG) or any of its security apparatus.
Metuh, who at a press conference Tuesday in Abuja alleged that in the last seven months, as opposition spokesperson, has “been hounded, harassed, intimidated and threatened severally” also noted “as someone who has been a private person, having not taken any public office, the choice of where, how and when to invest and conduct my personal business remains my prerogative”.
The PDP National Publicist insisted that the former leader of his party and President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria invited him and directed that he should carry out some assignments relating to his office which he stated were “duly funded”.
“It is important to note that the former President was fully satisfied with the way and manner I handled the assignment” Metuh added.
Metuh who has been very critical of the present administration since its inception, late May 2015, indicated in order to avoid personal and family pressure, had refrained from bringing them (family) to the public domain, warning, on account of recent information available to him, alleged that he had cause to believe that the FG was desperate and might have finalized plans to silence me.
He reiterated that the present government should not use the apparatus of state power to settle personal scores.
