"PDP not involved in any impeachment" - Olisa Metuh

The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), said it had never been involved in any impeachment of any state governor or other political office holders.

Olisa Metuh, PDP’s National Publicity Secretary, stated this at a news conference in Abuja on Tuesday. He debunked insinuations that the PDP and the Federal Government were responsible for the current move to impeach the Nasarawa state governor by the state House of Assembly.
“We are bold to claim that nobody on either side of the divide in Nasarawa state can claim the involvement of the Presidency or that of our national leadership in the impeachment saga.

“The PDP challenges APC leadership to produce any corroboration of this allegation within the government of Nasarawa State.

“The Governor of Nasarawa state has never and can never lay claim to the complicity of the presidency and the PDP leadership in this matter,” Metuh said.
On the impeachment in Adamawa and similar developments in other states, Metuh restated the party’s respect for the principle of separation of powers.

The PDP charged its members in state Houses of Assembly to be guided by due process and rule of law in the execution of their legislative duties.
“We urge our members in all state legislatures to thread with caution and be guided by due process and the rule of law in the execution of their legislative duties,” he said.
