Abuja - Some aggrieved members of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) have urged the embattled National Publicity Secretary of the party, Olisa Metuh to resign, reports NewsDay.
The members under the aegis of PDP National Youth Frontier (PDP NYF), said Metuh should step aside until the ongoing corruption investigations against him by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) are concluded.
Metuh was arrested by operatives of the EFCC on Tuesday in connection with the $2.1 billion arms deal.

The group said it regrets the conduct of prominent members of the party who have so far been manipulated in acts ranging from corruption to outright theft.
