PDP rejects Lai Mohammed’s training offer for Olisa Metuh

Olisa Metuh

The Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, Publicity Directorate has rejected the offer of a crash course on speaking for an opposition party made by the spokesperson of the APC, Lai Mohammed, on Friday.

The PDP said the offer was arrogant and self-serving.

The PDP’s response was contained a statement signed by an aide to its spokesperson, Olisa Metuh, Richard Ihediwa, on Sunday in Abuja.

“Alhaji Mohammed in his usual ill-mannered and condemnable approach left the issues and dwelt on insults, disdainful comments and personal attacks,” the statement said.

It also said Mr. Metuh stands by the party’s statement that the APC is plotting to impose a one-party system in the Nigeria and is now approaching some senior members of the PDP with phantom promises and threats ostensibly to destabilize the party.

“Is Alhaji Mohammed feigning ignorance of the various recent open and nocturnal meetings of his party with highly respected members of the PDP?

“We are aware that as part of the plot, the APC in the past few weeks, has been luring and encouraging some of our members to issue derogatory statements against the leadership of our party. While some of their accomplices have openly decamped, we know that others have been instructed to stay back and cause crisis within our ranks,” it said.

PDP said even in states where it lost, the APC has engaged in violence and instigating crisis all in the bid to impose a one-party system in the country.

“The PDP National Publicity Secretary does not need Alhaji Mohammed’s so-called six weeks crash course in party publicity.

“He does not need a course on how to insult and denigrate the office and person of the President of our country. He has already made it clear that the PDP will do no such thing but only focus on constructive criticism while presenting credible alternatives to the policies and programmes of the incoming administration in a manner that will promote democracy and the well-being of Nigerians.

“Nobody can learn anything from the APC National Publicity Secretary except abuses, divisiveness, lies and hate campaign. Nigerians know that Lai Mohammed is the originator of hate campaign with which he fouled our contemporary political arena. It is to say the least, despicable that his style badly influenced hundreds of young people who now engage in abusing each another on the social media thinking that such is what publicity is all about,” PDP said.

The party also challenged Mr. Mohammed to go back to the statements the PDP and APC issued in the last three months and he will realize that while he was busy with hate campaign, raining insults and telling lies, Mr. Metuh focused only on points, marketing its candidates while promoting policies and issues that engender national unity, stability and progress.

“He therefore has nothing to learn from Lai Mohammed” they said.

PDP argued that Mr. Metuh is not in any way the weakest link but has only chosen to be mature, humble and civil in dealing with national issues.

“We therefore counsel Alhaji Mohammed to be careful with the way he is parading himself as a Colossus bestriding the globe; otherwise one would think that he is suffering from Narcissist Personality Disorder (NPD).

“While we urge him to purge himself and learn to be civil in his approach to issues, we also strongly advice that “those whose palm kernels were cracked for them by a benevolent spirit should not forget to be humble,” PDP said.

      I totally agree with you.

      ALHAJI LAI MOHAMMED should learn from polite, honest , civil and consistent people like Femi Fani Kayode and Doyin Okupe.

  • mamazee a

    Abeg they should all quiet and face the task ahead. Pdp has the greater task of earning the trust of Nigerian

  • Frank Bassey

    APC has taught Nigerians two evils: One – that you can abuse and insult the President and nothing happens to you. Two, that you can vie for the post of President without the requisite qualification and INSIST on going ahead.

    • u funny man…. Dont worry u guys will soon get over loosing out.

    • tundemash

      Mor0n….. only a mad man makes same mistake over and over again hoping to get a different result next time. Your thoughtless propaganda against APC didn’t work before the leection, is it now it will work ?

  • Hamzasiraj

    This Metuh’s aide is a liar like his boss.All what Metuh said prior,during and after the elections are well documented…

  • Ade#

    Metuh ruin GEJ chances.. The minute you started the Islamic party narrative, PDP faith was sealed.

    Your lack of sensitivity and understanding of the political space you operate in, clearly shows you lack the fit and capacity to hold a sensitive office..

    As I have always said, GEJ lack of basic rudiments of governance, this affected his ability to see the bigger picture.. By allowing miscreants like yourself, FFK, Gulak, Okupe to speak and represent his view clearly shows how political naive he was.. Politics is about bridging bridges not pulling them down as you and the other aides see’s it.

    The result is obvious for all to see..

    He he he…! Your refusal to learn is your plan to fail.

    @ “While we urge him to purge himself and learn to be civil in his approach to issues, we also strongly advice that “those whose palm kernels were cracked for them by a benevolent spirit should not forget to be humble,” PDP said. How ironic? PDP’s tantrums, vituperations and empty arrogance while feasting on our commonwealth were well documented! Methu and his people should take sometime to review their utterances and press releases to date and they will realize that that statement is actually meant for them but they missed it and Nigerians kicked them out. Let them brace up for the opposition role and they should offer robust and constructive opposition for the benefits of all. Sai Buhari!!!

  • tundemash

    ah! ah! ah!!! Lai Mohammed obviously gave PDP a sucker punch hence this feeble attempt to lie bare-faced as usual again by PDPigs !
    Metuh, go take the crash coruse while the gracious offer is still on the table, there is no shame in learning from someone far superior than you.

  • Victor Gee

    APC is evil. Thank God that PDP and Metu chose to be matured in handling national emergency if not this country would have crashed.

  • Victor Gee

    Olisa Metu needs to tutor Lia Muhammed on how to handle the fortunes of being in power. I do know who Lia Muhammed will attack now? Maybe be Buhari.

  • en

    Olisa Metuh! The novice! A loudmouth with nothing to offer. A man-boy whose mouth offers nothing. He will soon go hungry and will decamp to APC.

    Olisa the blab!
