‘Explain Your Connections With MEND’, PDP Tells APC

Olisa Metuh, PDP National Publicity Secretary.

The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has tasked the All Progressives Congress (APC) to come out clean and explain to Nigerians, their connections with the Movement for the Emancipation of the Niger Delta (MEND).

PDP National Publicity Secretary, Olisa Metuh, in a statement on Wednesday said while the onus lies on the APC to choose those to work with in their quest for power, “the explanation has become necessary following the unsavory public reactions and concerns trailing the statement by MEND backing their Presidential candidate, Muhammadu Buhari.

“What exactly does APC have in common with MEND? Why do they want to resurrect it? Nigerians want to know. Are we also expecting a similar statement from insurgents in the north, who initially named General Buhari to lead the dialogue between them and the Federal Government?

“Nigerians are indeed worried by these developments. We therefore urge the APC to come out clean and explain to the citizens what they have in common with these groups, especially given the statement by their flag bearer, after the 2011 elections, that the ‘dogs and baboons will all be soaked in blood”.

    ……the same connection with Jonathan when he asked them to detonate bomb on 1st October and he immediately exempt them from it even before investigation by the police. And later Okah confessed to be used, with aim to black mail some politicians.
    Please PDP is attacking APC your political achievement and what you want to give Nigerians when elected ? What we want to hear is what you achieve and what you want to achieve when elected not lies, blackmail and sabotage. If APC is not clean, PDP is worse, for how many years did you serve? Show us what you achieve !

    • comradejoe

      You are frequently seen making comments on post but I’m worried that you refused to see GEJ address in his inaugural speech. It is clearly stated there his achievements n needs to consolidate on further development in consonants n furtherance with d existing ones.

      • amazing2012

        I am talking about those in the party to talk about manifesto not attacking themselves !

      • Kay Soyemi (Esq.)

        Lol, @comradejoe.

        Please let us talk about real achievements and not phantom achievements and mirages borne out of voodoo economics.

        Real and tangible examples, if you please.

        • tundemash

          One of the achievements was that phanthom train…. can he kindly scan a copy of his train ticket here as proof ? Been asking the e-rats for this for months …… no one has tickets or are the train rides free ?

      • tundemash

        One of the achievements was that phanthom train…. can u kindly scan a copy of your train ticket here as proof ?

        • Olu Ade

          You mean the cargo train engine made in the 1940s that they bought and re-painted, that no reasonable country will use to pull cargo/ load not to ever talk of animals.

    • Kay Soyemi (Esq.)

      Bruv, what they are perplexed about is how come MEND switched support to GMB if the man is not spraying money around.

      They forget that it is not everybody that is motivated by money.

      MEND has jumped onto the train and would not be available to PDP for its planned post-election violence when Jonothing has lost.

  • Abdullahi Abba Bukar

    We should also ask you, what does PDP has with Boko Haram that we see their alleged Sponsors going places with PDP leaders?

  • Abubakar

    I do not think it is wise enough to start asking APC question about MEND, considering the fact that APC did not say anything about MEND but it is MEND that said it has endorsed Buhari ad their Presidential aspirant, if at least you are seeking for connection the investigation should start from MEND not from APC since they did not ask MEND to support them and has not acknowledged the support of MEND. Besides before when MEND were supporting GEJ why it is not suspicious until when the support changes base that it becomes an issue.

  • George Ager.A

    Olisa Met or whatever your name is, explain the PDPs connection with witches and wizards since they always endorse GEJ for presidency!

    • tundemash


  • jazz man

    METU. MEND were die hearts supporter of gej as at 01 01 2015 you said nothing..the certain changes was mentioned and seen by MEND AS, PDP ARE WORSE AND MORE BRUTAL THAN THEY ARE..thats why they resolve to help…but for you Mr wayward soon is enough.

  • excel

    Olisa have started another side of is foolishness, what is the duty of your dss dog madam i expected her to ask the question. stop all this propaganda and face issue base campaign even though you and your clueless pdp have noting more to offer. CHANGE will spread across Nigeria.

  • tundemash

    Olosi Metuh, i will explain it to you since you are so d@ft !!!

    MEND are Nigerians affected by the misgovernance of PDP since 1999. Same way your PDP misgovernance affected Fr. Mbaka, APGA, Olubunmi Okogie, my humble self and other Nigerians too numrous to mention and we all spoke out against your puppet Dumbo and in favour of CHANGE represent by Buhari. So how come you haven’t asked APC to explain the relationship between them and millions of people giving them support daily ?????????

  • Ajayi Ifayemi

    These PDP people are finished! And it is becoming clearer by the day from their statements. Wow!

  • Joe

    One thing I observed from the commentators in this forum was that APC supporters are full of insulting people and never make decent comments. Most of the APC supporters preach hate and nothing else. Insulting Jonathan or his supporters cannot improve APC or Buhari’s chances of going to Aso rock, so be decent in your comments. Know this: if Buhari happens to be the president, he cannot revert the anti-gay law; so all those that hates Jonathan because of anti gay law should hold their peace pls.

    • sadiq

      Who want him to revert anti gay law b4….to hell with guys arround….cos God does not like it….what we want is corruption free country

  • gafar_1

    No Nigerian is worried,
    except PDP. APC or its flag bearer will never have connection with any terror
    group. Such a call by PDP is ill-conceived & unnecessarily diversionary
