The decision of former publicity secretary of
the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) Olisa
Metuh to return the N400million traced to
him from defence funds has come as a
surprise to many Nigerians.
Olisa Metuh and other members of the PDP s are
currently facing trial for allegedly receiving
funds meant for the purchase of arms.
Recall the several PDP party members are
currently facing trial for allegedly receiving
funds which were primarily meant for the
purchase of arms for the fight against Boko
Haram insurgents.
The money was reportedly shared to party
officials by former president Goodluck
Jonathan through the office of the nation
security adviser
However, following the travails of his trial,
Metuh through his lawyer Onyechi Ikpeazu has
issued a statement again reasserting his
intention to return the funds in its entirety to
signify his support for President Muhammadu
Buhari’s anti-corruption war.
But Metuh’s turnaround has generated
reactions from Nigeria social media space, as
some Nigerians who are wondering why the
once outspoken PDP spokesperson has all of a
sudden become born again.
