A former National Publicity Secretary of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Chief Olisa Metuh, has resigned his membership of the party.
In his resignation letter addressed to the PDP National Chairman, Dr. Iyorchia Ayu, Metuh said he was quitting the main opposition because he could no longer play partisan politics in Nigeria.
“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,” the letter said.
