Ex-PDP spokesperson: We must stand for Nnamdi Kanu

Justice Binta Nyako of the Abuja Division of the Federal High Court on Tuesday ordered the remand of fugitive leader of the indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Nnamdi Kanu, in the custody of the department of State services (DSS).

Former National Publicity Secretary of the Peoples Democratic Party, Olisa Metuh, has suggested that a political solution be found to the crisis which led to the arrest and incarceration of the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, Nnamdi Kanu.

Metuh said this in a statement titled, ‘Metuh seeks political solution on Nnamdi Kanu’s incarceration…donates office to PDP,’ made available to reporters in Abuja on Saturday.

The former PDP spokesman was quoted to have made the appeal in Nnewi, Anambra State while inaugurating a fully furnished office complex he built and donated to the Nnewi North chapter of the PDP on Friday.

Metuh also appealed to youths to desist from acts capable of crippling the economy and social life in the region.

While expressing support for the initiative of the National Assembly caucus of the South East, Metuh said, “I, Chief Olisa Metuh, is here to give my 100 per cent support to the South East National Assembly Caucus on its initiatives to provide a political solution to the arrest of Mazi Nnamdi Kanu and the situations that constitute unrest in South-East Nigeria.

“I call on the South-East Governors Forum to join in providing political solutions to the plight of Ndi Igbo so as to ensure a peaceful zone for our people.

“Nnamdi Kanu is an Igbo man and our son, He has not stolen before, nor has he killed anyone before and hence we must stand for him as our son.”

He further said, “Our youths must understand that for Ndi Igbo to have achieved what we achieved in South East today, it was totally through personal hard work and contributions of individuals.

“Hence, we must not destroy our own or continue this incessant sit-at-home order that is crippling our economy and our local enterprises.

Metuh also urged members of the PDP in Anambra to remain united and refrain from politics of bitterness and acrimony, especially as the party prepares for the November 6 governorship election in the state.
