The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) National Executive Committee has set up a committee to consider the possibility of changing the party’s name ahead of the 2019 general elections.
The party’s National Publicity Secretary, Kola Ologbondiyan, made the fact known when he briefed newsmen on the decision of the emergency meeting of the NEC in Abuja on Monday.
Ologbondiyan said the step was part of efforts to re-brand and reposition the party ahead of 2019.
“The party has immediately constituted a committee on harmonisation.
“The responsibility of the Harmonisation Committee is to commence the process of the possibility of change of name as part of effort to re-brand our party and to reposition it for 2019 general elections.
“So we await the outcome of the Harmonisation Committee. ”
