Atiku Abubakar, a former Vice President, has told the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) that rebuilding and strengthening should be the party’s priority not selecting a candidate for the 2023 presidential election.
The presidential candidate of the PDP in the 2019 election said this in a tweet on Saturday.
“Our preoccupation at this point in the @OfficialPDPNig should not focus on elections, but on rebuilding and strengthening our party for the challenges ahead of us,” Abubakar wrote on Twitter.
His tweet came after reports of threat over zoning of the 2023 general election.
Walid Jibrin, Chairman of the party’s Board of Trustees, said recently that his life was under threat for saying the party’s presidential ticket is open to every member of the party.
He said some party members had been angry with him for not endorsing Atiku as the party’s preferred candidate.
