The party holds its presidential primary election on June 6th to 8th at Eagle Square in Abuja.
The screening committee was chaired by John Odigie-Oyegun.
Submitting the report to the National Chairman of the party on Friday in Abuja at the party’s National Headquarters, the former National Chairman of party, Oyegun said 10 aspirants got the axe.
The full report is yet to be made available even as the disqualified aspirants are yet to be revealed.
Speaking during the presentation of the report, Oyegun said, “First, we have 23 aspirants that we interacted with and my first comment is that we are indeed a lucky party. The point I want to make is the quality of the people that want to govern this country,” Oyegun said.
“We are a governing party and so the ability to lead, the background, experience… it is on the basis that we made a shortlist. I won’t want to read the names, I’d leave that to you, but we brought the number down to 13.
“We could have cut it a little shorter but we wanted the younger elements to surface.”
