Chairman, Board of Trustees of the Peoples Democratic Party, Senator Walid Jibrin, has said his life is under threat of attack for failing to say that Atiku Abubakar should be the automatic candidate of the party in 2023.

The BoT chairman said since he granted an interview over the Presidency, he had received anonymous calls threatening his life.

Jibrin had recently hinted that the party would soon commence a high-level consultation and search for a credible candidate to fly the party’s flag for the 2023 Presidency.

He said he had received threat calls of an imminent attack on him “for not saying that the PDP” should zone the 2023 Presidency to the North-East geopolitical zone of the country.

The BoT chairman said, “I have received anonymous calls from some people threatening my life for not saying that the party’s presidential candidate should come from the North-East geopolitical zone of the country.

Walid argued that whoever wanted to contest was free to do so without necessarily threatening his life.

He added that some faceless people had even gone to the PDP National Secretariat at Wadata Plaza, saying that those that went there had the intention to deal with him.

While saying he remained unperturbed to the threat from faceless people, Walid noted that he received similar threats during the ex-President Goodluck Jonathan’s administration because he was considered to be too frank about party matters.

He said he had since petitioned the Inspector- General of Police, Adamu Mohammed, over the development.
