Metuh, who was speaking while addressing PDP stakeholders in the state, noted that the APC administration has been busy victimising public officials in the Jonathan administration rather than provide a policy direction for Nigerians.

He stated that regardless of the alleged intimidation and victimisation of PDP members, the party would win in the forthcoming governorship elections in Kogi and Bayelsa states.
