The People’s Democratic Party (PDP), on Thursday, screened 29 governorship aspirants from the three states of the South-East region for the 2023 general elections.
The aspirants were three from Abia, 10 from Ebonyi, and 16 from Enugu.
Though the committee did not address newsmen after the screening, some of the aspirants who spoke lauded the process.
An aspirant from Enugu, Mr Josef Onoh, expressed satisfaction over the exercise, saying it was smooth and good.
Onoh said he had submitted all the necessary documents and hoped to participate in the party’s primary election.
Another aspirant, Sen. Obinna Ogba, representing Ebonyi Central Senatorial District, said he had submitted all that was required, adding that it was a hitch-free exercise.
“It did not take me up to two minutes to do mine,” he said.
Briefing them, the Secretary of PDP South-East, Mr James Ugwu, said, “We invited them to brief them on how to do their campaigns without undermining and castigating anyone.
“The party expected them to tell people their manifestos and programs and if we discover that anybody among them is busy running anyone down, the zone will definitely take action against the person,” Ugwu said.
