The national publicity secretary of the PDP, Olisa Metuh has said even though Muhammadu Buhari has emerged the President of Nigeria today, his party, the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, will not hang the portrait of the president on their walls. A look at their Wadata House national secretariat located at zone 5, Abuja shows no single portrait of the president in their offices. When a Punch correspondent spoke to him on the phone, Metuh said, Buhari is not known to them.
“We will never hang his portrait in this office, because President Buhari is not known to our party. He is not a leader of our party and therefore we will never put his portrait here. We are a political party, very partisan and therefore, we are not going to hide that,” he said.
He also went ahead to say APC did not hang the portrait of Jonathan in their offices while he was the president of the Nation.
“Can you find out if the APC had the portrait of former President Jonathan in their office before he was defeated? That is just it,” he asked.
Lai Mohammed has however said the response of Metuh is shocking and he leaves Nigerians to be the judge.
