You can’t hold us responsible for your failure, PDP tells Jonathan

Addressing Journalists , Monday, in Abuja, PDP National Publicity Secretary, Chief Olisa Metuh while exonerating the party from Jonathan’s failure, stressed that the defeat was because the party and its leadership were not carried along and their advice was ignored.

Metuh who noted that hate campaign by the Presidential Campaign Committee resulted in the failure of the party, said that members of the NWC did not play any significant role in the 2015 presidential campaign of the party, adding that the abysmal performance ‎of the party in the north was a result of the hate campaign adopted by the PDP Presidential Campaign Organisation against the APC and its presidential candidate, General Muhammadu Buhari, retd.

Reacting to an online report that NWC members shared part of the presidential campaign funds among themselves, said the NWC was never involved in the disbursement of campaign funds, revealed that the party spent over N4 billion to sponsor their candidates in the presidential, governorship, National Assembly and the House of Assemblies elections. Metuh said, “we did not lead the party to failure, we were not involved in the campaigns and our advice was ignored. If we had handled the campaign, Mr. President would have won the election. We cannot be held responsible when our advise was ignored.

  1. Jona should hold his wife (mama peace), Femi fani – kayode and fayose of ekiti state and all those wolfs in his cabinet, d likes of Deziani Allison Madueke responsible for his defeat. Instead of issue based campaign, they were doing hate campaign and Deziani was busy sponsoring d opposition’s campaign. Non of them could inform Nigerian of what d president did for the six years in office and what he is still going to do when he comes back d second time.
