Newsmen revealed that the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has said that it is not contemplating a change of identity, saying the unassailable vision of its founding fathers remains timeless in building a country of the collective wish and aspirations of all citizens.
The party in a statement issued by its national publicity secretary, Olisa Metuh, yesterday, and made available to journalists, remarked that despite losing control of the federal government and some of its states in the last general elections, it is still the truly national political party with strength and spread enough to regain pre-eminence.
PDP said having been the guardian of Nigerian democracy for 16 years during which it nurtured and blossomed democratic governance as well as etched its name in the pantheon of good governance, it will not in the circumstance of ephemeral loss of power change its identity or its time-honoured characteristic values.
The party said though it is resolutely committed to its present structures, it would not close its doors to other political parties wishing to be assimilated into its fold as the best vehicle for the fulfilment of political aspirations of all Nigerians regardless of tribe and religion
