Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party Board of Trustees, Senator Walid Jibrin, said his life is in danger following his recent comments that every interested member of the party was free to aspire for the 2023 Presidency.

According to him, he made it clear that his life is being threatened for not saying that the 2023 Presidency will be zoned to the North-East.

He said since he granted an interview over the 2023 Presidency, he had received anonymous calls threatening his life.

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

He also said every interested and eligible member of the party from any part of Nigeria, including the party’s candidate in the last election, Atiku Abubakar, are free to aspire under the platform of the party.

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.

“They said I ought to have said that Atiku Abubakar should be the automatic candidate of the party in 2023.”

He said the party’s BoT members are working towards ensuring that peace and stability reigned in the PDP before the 2023 general elections.
