Chief Olisa Metuh, the national publicity secretary of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has revealed that some members of the party want him to continue to insult President Muhammadu Buhari as a way to perform as an opposition party.

The All Progressives Congress (APC) defeated the ruling PDP in the 2015 general election to win the presidential election and also most governorship and senatorial seats.

The Punch reports that Metuh said on Saturday, December 26 in Abuja that it was not easy to develop the PDP as a lot of forces were working against the progress of the party.


He said: “We have been rebuilding, but it is not easy. We are rebuilding, but there are different forces, and contending interests (working against it). It is not easy.

“On one hand, we are dealing with a ruthless ruling party, and we also have some divisive elements in our party who are genuinely accepting some influence in the administration of the party.

“Knowingly or unknowingly, they are embarking on distractions and distractions that would rather be in the interest of the ruling party than our growth.”

He said the party was focused now that it had become the opposition party. He said the APC did not the election by insulting former president Goodluck Jonathan and that insulting the present administration would not boost the image of the PDP.

“But since we lost the election, we have tried to remain focus and retain the support of a very large number of our members to remain focus in opposing this government.

“Some of our members misconstrue an opposition party to be a party that insults people because that was what the APC was doing.


“People want us to insult the President and the ruling party to remain in opposition. Because we are not doing that, our people are not comfortable with that.

“They believe that we are too soft and they believe that we are too academic. They want us to be insulting the people. It was not by insulting the former President that gave the APC victory.

“We fuelled partisan support for the APC in some part of the country.”
