He said any attempt to change the name would lead to its total collapse.
He declared that posterity would not forgive any member plotting to destroy the PDP and dumping it to form another party.
The BoT chairman, who spoke at a press conference in Kaduna, said members were working tirelessly to reposition the PDP, to reclaim power from the APC, stating that posterity would not forgive any member, who wanted to kill the party to satisfy personal interest.
Jibrin said, “I wish to say authoritatively that there is no plan to dump the PDP as it was never discussed or any discussion taken by any organ of the party.
“If we do that, posterity will not forgive us because the PDP is already a household name, dearly loved by every household in Nigeria.
“Posterity will judge any one with the ambition to kill the PDP; for his ambition is quite contrary to the hard work of our founding fathers and mothers, who worked so hard to produce the brand PDP.
“Changing its name and brand will be a disaster for Nigeria’s political development, especially when we cast our mind back to the hard work and foresight of our founding fathers and mothers, who came up with the brand name, PDP, which is fully accepted and cherished by Nigerians.”
On the November 26 governorship poll in Ondo State, the BoT chairman expressed optimism that Mr. Eyitayo Jegede, who he described as the PDP candidate, would win the election.
