He claimed that his trial was due to his criticisms against the president’s governance style – Metuh also alleged that some APC chieftain had approached him to discuss how they could strengthen the PDP and wrestle power from President Buhari Former national publicity secretary of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Chief Olisa Metuh, on Thursday, October 25, told the Federal High Court in Abuja the alleged reason why President Muhammadu Buhari wants to jail him. Testifying as the 15th Defence Witness, DW-15, the former PDP spokesman, claimed that his trial was a calculated attempt by All Progressives Congress (APC)-led government to silence him from criticising President Buhari’s alleged dictatorial tendencies. Vanguard reports that Metuh told the court that top APC members had prior to the time the EFCC arrested and subsequently charged him for fraud, tried to dissuade him from attacking President Buhari in the media. He reportedly told the court that some of the APC members met him on several occasions in Dubai, Switzerland and Paris to discuss possible roles they could play to strengthen the PDP to wrestle power from President Buhari. He said the top APC members, whom he did not disclose their identities, equally complained of President Buhari’s governance style, saying they had lost confidence in his administration. Metuh said after he refused to soft-pedal on his criticisms, he started receiving warnings to be cautious of a possible attack. He said: “The then national chairman of the APC, Oyegun, publicly warned me that the APC was not happy with me and is not taking my criticisms lightly. “Also, when President Buhari wants to engage in undemocratic practice, I will resist such by taking pressmen to houses of Nigerians who were unlawfully held hostage in their houses, to conduct live press conferences, and this put an immediate stop to excesses of the DSS and other security agencies.” Metuh said the last action that informed the charges against him came after President Buhari allegedly made a broadcast on a live media chat. “He informed Nigerians that his government can arrest and detain Nigerians at will, I immediately countered that he was becoming an unrepentant tyrant,” Metuh was quoted to have said. Meanwhile, it has been previously reported that Victor Udofia, PDP member representing Ikono state constituency in the Akwa Ibom House of Assembly had dumped the party. The defection is contained in a letter sent to the PDP state chairman, Paul Ekpo and signed by the lawmaker himself and made available to newsmen in Uyo on Thursday, October 25. Udofia, who did not state the party he’s defecting to or give reason for his defection, thanked the PDP for the opportunity granted him while he was in the party.
