PDP changes name to accommodate R-APC, holds emergency NEC meeting
Ahead of big bang defection to pdp this week thursday, there were speculations over the weekend that the Peoples Democratic Party was considering a change of name.
It is believed that it is all in a bid to incorporate political big wigs who are defecting from parties.
This was further fuelled with the decision of the party to summon an emergency meeting of its National Executive Committee for Monday.
The invitation for the meeting was sent out on Sunday.
It is scheduled to hold on Monday at 4pm at the national secretariat of the party in Abuja.
The notice of the meeting, signed by the National Secretary of the party, Senator Umaru Tsauri, was, however, silent on the agenda of the meeting.
Umar in the notice said the National Chairman of the party, Prince Uche Secondus, enjoined all members to attend.
