The Peoples Democratic Party has said that the All Progressives Congress is threatening ex-Vice President Abubakar Atiku ahead of the 2019 election.
According to the PDP, Atiku and other presidential aspirants under the party were threatened to drop their ambitions.
In a statement on Saturday, the PDP said it “does not take these threats as a ruse and we demand an open inquest into all the issues raised by Alhaji Atiku Abubakar in his petition to President Buhari.
“It is public knowledge that the APC has been in a frenetic mode over the calibre and popularity of presidential aspirants arraying in our party platform.
“The APC knows that President Buhari is no match for any of our aspirants hence the resort to violence, harassment and death threats, with a view to frighten and put our presidential aspirants out of circulation ahead of the 2019 elections.
“The dysfunctional APC has become distraught by the resurge of Nigerians to our platform since the commencement of electioneering activities, while the APC national secretariat and its state offices have become deserted like graveyards.”
