Chief Olisa Metuh,  former National Publicity Secretary of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) , has dissociated himself from a court action instituted by Sen. Ali Modu Sheriff , a factional National Chairman of the party, and others seeking to stop the party from going ahead with the August 17 national convention.

Metuh, who stated this in a statement issued by Mr. Richard Ihediwa ,his aide, in Abuja on Thursday, said he was surprised to see his name as one of the plaintiffs in the suit seeking to halt the convention.

He said his concern now was his health and his cases in court , adding that he never instructed anyone to file any such suit on his behalf.

The statement said, “For the avoidance of doubt,  Metuh has taken the pains to consult those that went to court and has been reliably informed that his name was listed in error and which they have promised to rectify accordingly.

“It is pertinent to mention that Metuh has not attended any political meeting and/or programme since his chair accident at a function at the party’s national secretariat (of the PDP ) in April wherein it aggravated his spinal cord ailment.

“Our appeal to all and sundry therefore is that Metuh at this time should be left out of intra-party controversies. His only preoccupation now remains matters concerning his health and the extant court trial.”
