Abuja - The former National Publicity Secretary of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Olisa Metuh has denied knowledge of any suit seeking the stoppage of the August 17 convention of the party, reports NewsDay
Metuh, who spoke through his special adviser, Richard Ihediwa, said he is not aware of any suit to stop the party's convention.
