The People’s Democratic Party on Tuesday called on the United States and other members of the international community to prevail on President Muhammadu Buhari to take decisive steps to protect Nigerians and curb escalated violence, terrorism and banditry in the country.
PDP National Chairman, Uche Secondus, made the call at a meeting with the Political Officer with the United States Embassy in Nigeria, Jerry Howard, ahead of its conference on security.

Secondus, according to a statement by PDP National Publicity Secretary Kola Ologbondiyan, also said the party would remain steadfast in its ideals and would never change its name or any of its identity.
“We’ll not change our brand. Our strength is in our name, the PDP, and we’re not in any contemplation of changing our name. It does not matter how many times other parties changed their names. Our name remains the PDP,” he said.
Earlier, Howard had assured of the continued support of the US towards deepening Nigerian democracy.
