The party National Organising Secretary, Retired Col. Austin Akobundu, said the exercise was to screen all the aspirants ahead of the primaries, to elect a candidate that would lead PDP to victory in the Nov. 6, election.

Akobundu said that the exercise would be smooth as the committee was committed to its mandate.

He maintained that most parties, including PDP, had in the past lost elections for doing shady jobs in the screening of aspirants.

Akobundu said though the aspirants were 16, the committee would determine those that met the criteria for the election.

Some of the aspirants that obtained the party’s nomination and expression of interest forms include, Uche Ekwunife, Obiora Okonkwo, Chris Azugbogu, Winston Udeh, Valentine Ozigbo, Godwin Ezeemo, and Emeka Etiaba

Others include Ifedi Okwena, Ugochkwu Uba, Tony Nwoye, Chidi Onyemerukwe, Godwin Maduka and Ekwochi Genevieve.
