Alhaji Sule Lamido, a presidential Aspirant of the People Democratic Party (PDP) has disclosed that the party would not, in a bid to satisfy the request of those seeking its membership, change the name and logo of the party.
Lamido insisted that the Party would not change all that it is known for of stand for to suit those planning to join the party.
Lamido, while speaking to prospective delegates of the party in Minna the Niger State capital declared that anyone that is not satisfied with the party’s present name could leave the party.
He said: “The PDP remains the only party with well- defined ideology. Between 1999 and now all the other political parties have changed their names in the quest to wrestle power from the PDP. Out of all political parties, only the PDP had retained its name.”
Lamido said the destruction caused by the All Progressives Congress (APC) led government had set Nigeria back by 10 years, adding that security situations across the country had degenerated in alarming rate.
According to The Nation, the former Governor of Jigawa State said the APC is in a panic mode because all the brains in the party had defected and longer have the capacity to convince Nigerians.
“Defection occurred when there is injustice and impunity. The impunity and injustice made people to leave PDP then. Those who left are now coming back. When they left us, we were able to manage it, we were able to conduct ourselves in a very dignified way because we are leaders.
“What goes round comes around, it is now time for the APC to experience same and they are panicking because they have no capacity. When we faced same in 2014, we were very cool, calm and collected and were able to lead the party despite our losses.”
