PDP accuses APC of sponsoring falsehoods against Jonathan, ex-Governor Sheriff

Olisa Metuh, PDP National Publicity Secretary.

The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has lambasted the APC for attempting to deceive Nigerians by issuing statements and sponsoring fabrications in the media to present former Governor of Borno state, Senator Ali Modu Sheriff, as being in President Goodluck Jonathan’s entourage to Chad knowing same to be completely false.

PDP National Publicity Secretary, Olisa Metuh in a statement on Saturday described as “repulsive and utterly despicable”, the refusal of the APC to shed its taste for lying, spreading of falsehood and attacks on individuals as means of achieving political control” in spite of several counsels by well-meaning Nigerians.

“Now that it has become incontrovertible that Senator Sheriff was not on the entourage of the President, we ask, was the APC release an issue of dishing out statements without cross-checking the facts or that of a desperate opposition party adopting the combination of lies, deceit and inciting of people as operational creed to hide its sinister agenda?”,
the PDP queried.

Stating that the APC has again “displayed its lack of integrity and penchant for falsehood for which it has become repugnant to Nigerians”, the PDP said it was appalling that the opposition party has remained “a camp of dishonest lot whose statements cannot be trusted.”

“We invite Nigerians to note that APC’s statements are always laced with lies, unfounded allegations and fabrications. Recently, the APC issued a statement on the so-called Australian hostage negotiator, Stephen Davis only to be confronted with massive contradictions of facts with attendant controversy.

“We recall the shameful attempt to deceive Nigerians by accusing the PDP-led government of moving operatives of the DSS to terrorize the people of Osun state when in actual fact, the APC governor of Osun state also formally requested for their deployment ahead of the August 9 governorship election.

“Also the APC in June issued a statement wherein it alleged that a plane carrying Kano state Governor Rabiu Kwankwaso to attend its rally in Ekiti was denied landing permission in Akure, only for Kwankwaso’s Director of Press Affairs to announce that the governor was at another event in Kano and had no plans to travel to Ekiti state.

“This is a party that earlier this year raised an alarm that federal lawmakers were being induced with millions of dollars to defect to the PDP, only for Nigerians to find out that it was false; a party that threw all sense of honor to the wind to lie over an issue as ordinary as the age of its 52 years old Youth Leader.”, the ruling party stated.

The PDP again drew the attention of Nigerians to a dangerous trend by the APC wherein it has resorted to personal attacks on those who left their fold. It recalled the personal attacks on Chief Tom Ikimi, former Kano Governor Ibrahim Shekarau, his Sokoto state counterpart, Attahiru Bafarawa, former Aviation Minister, Femi Fani-Kayode and several others when they left the APC adding that such clearly shows it as an undemocratic and intolerant party desperate for survival.

Noting that such cannot save the APC, the PDP said many more of its members including two state governors and members of the National Assembly are now set to decamp to the PDP due to the bad image and anti-democratic stance of the APC.

It also upbraided the APC leaders for “working against the national interest and making themselves a laughing stock in the eyes of the international community by going to the British House of Commons and various international events to concoct stories in a bid to damage the image of their own nation” adding that such only portrays them as unpatriotic and irresponsible.

“We have before us individuals who most likely are used to concocting damaging stories even against their spouses and friends. This despicable trait must be dropped and should not transcend to fabricating destructive lies capable of tarnishing the image of our own dear nation,” the PDP said.

Maybe they promised him soft landing like they have done to Ihejirika. But Fatouma Bensouda has already been apprised at the ICC. Those who enjoy temporary immunity now shall all be herded there. They shall receive the Milosevic treatment. Then Nigerians will have the last laugh

    Olodo mental how about the many bare faced lies by ur party and the president. 2days ago Abati lied that sheriff was not in any official meeting with the president in Chad but a picture on his handle shows otherwise, how about the lie of Jonathan himself when he went to Davos and lied to the world he as fixed power in Nigeria. Ask ur president to try those caught in financing terrorism in the country don’t think u can deceive anybody with ur nonsense press release. APC is really hitting u guys hard and it will continue.

    We are tired of the way Olisa Mental haughtily talks down on Nigerians especially after carousing all night at the expense of our commonwealth. Next time he opens his mouth let him tell nigerians how PDP has added value to the lives of Nigerians between 1999 and now. Let him compare the quality of life prior to these locust years when human life has been completely devalued in the country. The choice before Nigerians is quite clear and it won’t take a thousand Olisas to tell them to change the prevailing order or perish. He can not think for us, not to tell us what to believe. Was it APC that posted the picture from Ndjamena? Was it APC that pushed Jonathan to the fringe extreme end of the picture line up in Washington when people like Yaya Boni of Benin posed in the centre of the picture? Does he realise that PDP has pushed Nigeria to the fringe in all matters? Its not APC that is doing these. And Nigerians know it

    THE CENTRAL BANK FINANCIER OF BOKO HARAM: WHO IS HE?

    “Stephen Davis [the Australian Boko Haram mediator] also mentions a Boko Haram financier
    within the Nigerian Central Bank. Independently we are able to give backing to that claim,
    even to the extent of naming the individual. In the process of our enquiries, we solicited
    the help of a foreign embassy whose government, we learnt, was actually on the same trail,
    thanks to its independent investigation into some money laundering that involved the Central Bank.”

    “That name, we confidently learnt, has also been passed on to President Jonathan.
    When he is ready to abandon his accommodating policy towards the implicated, even the criminalized,
    an attitude that owes so much to re-election desperation, when he moves from a passive
    ‘letting the law to take its course’ to galvanizing the law to take its course, we shall
    gladly supply that name. ”

    Nigeria has collapsed under the weight of PDP’s corruption of 15yrs with nada to show for it… just like their podium collapsed under the weight of their evil machinations against Nigerians. Mazi Olisa Metuh can smoke and rant his usual gibberish of rehashed stories, discerning Nigerians have learnt to stop reading Metuh meticulously… they browse through his comical tirades. The PDP has so demeaned Nigeria that the world looks down on us. Imagine Dumbo going to beg for tea in Chad while an OBJ or IBB would have simply summoned their raghead President to Nigeria with ultimatum. Christine Amanpour opening laughing at a Nigerian President’s folly… and White House protocols officer relegating our Clown Prince to back row. If Metuh thinks that’s honor, he must have been born by gutter-side is a ghetto. Ode buruku.

    Femi Fani-Kayode a controversial former Minister of Aviation under Obasanjo administration in a new article, has accused the recently suspended Central Bank Governor Mallam Sanusi Lamido Sanusi of sponsoring the deadly Boko Haram terrorist sect.

    Fani-Kayode in the article titled The Haramites Of Boko said “There is a very combative, visible and vocal individual from the north-western part of our country who has been accused of covertly funding and supporting the Islamist cause and terrorism for many years.

    “That same individual was described to the FBI as a ‘’trusted mentor” by Umar Faruk Mutallab, the Nigerian ‘’underwear bomber”, who attempted to blow up a plane filled with passengers as it was about to land in the United States of America a few years ago.

    Again that same individual has been accused of having a hand in one of the most heinous and brutal sectarian murders in the history of our country when a young man by the name of Gideon Akaluka, who, was cold-bloodedly beheaded by a rampaging mob in Kano for supposedly ‘’desecrating the Quoran”.

    Mallam Sanusi Lamido, a Chieftain of APC, have several been accused of leading a gang of nine Islamic fundamentalist to murder a young man by the name of Gideon Akaluka whose wife was caught using pages of the Koran too wipe her baby’s excrete.

    Fani wondered why mallam Sanusi has not been brought to justice or even questioned about these matters. Is it any wonder that Boko Haram appears to be going from strength to strength?

      Senator Ali Sheriff the sponsor of Boko Haram is a bona fide member of PDP. Sheriff was in Chad recently with President Jonathan as part of Jonathan’s entourage-sikena! So who is deceiving who?

  • TRUTH MASTER

    I have never read a more incoherent statement than this. Obviously, the PDP has no answer to the APC on so many issues, including the fact that Sheriff was indeed with President Jonathan when he met President Deby (though the presidency lied about it.

    If anyone could advise GEJ and the PDP, they should do away with their media/public affairs people (Abati, Okupe, Metuh etc) because they are not measuring up to standard. That’s the blunt truth!

  • endingNaija

    But Metuh (or what do you call yourself), your party PDP first asked Britain to investigate APC for Boko Haram. Why are you changing gears when APC responded to the charge your party gave Britain? You PDP people are deceptive. In the first place you should not have called on Brittan to investigate. But since you did, APC then responded. What is wrong with APC’s response to your charge to Britain?

  • Gbo_lee

    Metuh should explain to Nigerians what Sherriff,Jonathan and the Chad president were doing together pictured at the Chad State House contrary to claims by Reuben Abati that Sherriff only went to receive GEJ at the airport.

  • King Andy

    I have said it for the umpteen time and I will continue to say it. APC is worst than PDP. The reasons are not far fetched. It was the same APC members who described OBJ as the worst leader ever that went to him sometime last year and begged him to be their “navigator”. The same “progressives” who criticise TAN for hosting rallies when ebola is still on the loose are now holding their so called”we need Buhari”. In various ways other than the one listed by Metuh, APC has shown that they are worst than PDP. They talk too much and seems not to have any appealing ideologies. I’d rather stick to the devil I know.

    arents, teachers and students of British Nigerian Academy, Abuja,
    would not forget the incident which led to the beating of the Vice
    Principal in the school by Metuh on February 19 this year. Metuh
    reportedly stormed the school premises and beat up Mr. Kola Pele for
    impounding his son’s mobile telephone. It was learnt that his son, whose
    name was given as Derrick, an ex-student of the school, had visited to
    see his friends. The problem started when Derrick allegedly gave his
    phone to his friend for use against the schools policy that students
    must not use handsets while in school.

    The VP, who witnessed the
    development, confiscated the phone. Derrick’s mother, who accompanied
    her son during the visit, was said to have pleaded with the Vice
    Principal to return the phone to no avail. She then placed a call to her
    husband, who drove to the school in company of his aides in a convoy of
    three Sports Utility Vehicles (SUVs). Metuh then reportedly dragged the
    67-year old Vice Principal to the Proprietress’ office and with his
    aides, beat him to within an inch of his life. He later claimed
    sarcastically that he and his aides were just trying to show the VP that
    “there was a difference between discipline and cruelty.”

    PDP. Behaving like the opposition rather than the party in power!

    As far as societies are concerned, people are divided into two groups: the government and the governed. APC is clearly not the government at the national level. To help PDP understand its role as the Federal Government, here is Ayn Rand:

    Start Quote:
    The fundamental difference between private action and governmental action—a difference thoroughly ignored and evaded today—lies in the fact that a government holds a monopoly on the legal use of physical force. It has to hold such a monopoly, since it is the agent of restraining and combating the use of force; and for that very same reason, its actions have to be rigidly defined, delimited and circumscribed; no touch of whim or caprice should be permitted in its performance; it should be an impersonal robot, with the laws as its only motive power. If a society is to be free, its government has to be controlled.

    Under a proper social system, a private individual is legally free to take any action he pleases (so long as he does not violate the rights of others), while a government official is bound by law in his every official act. A private individual may do anything except that which is legally forbidden; a government official may do nothing except that which is legally permitted.

    This is the means of subordinating “might” to “right.” This is the American concept of “a government of laws and not of men.”
    “The Nature of Government,”
    The Virtue of Selfishness
