Ex President Jonathan was confirmed not screened by APC



After two weeks of delays and postponement, the governing All Progressives Congress (APC), began screening its presidential aspirants.

At the close of the sale of forms on May 10, 28 expressions of interest and nomination forms were bought for those seeking to succeed President Muhammadu Buhari. Of the number, 23 aspirants were cleared to face the screening committee at Transcorp Hilton, Abuja, headed by the former national chairman of the party, Chief John Odigie-Oyegun.

The Chairman of the screening committee, John Odigie-Oyegun, confirmed on Friday when he submitted his report to the APC National Chairman, Abduallahi Adamu, at an ongoing meeting of the National Working Committee that he didn’t not screen the former President Goodluck Jonathan

Odigie-Oyegun told journalists that contrary to news making the rounds, the former president was not at Transcorp Hilton for the exercise.

Oyegun’s clarification followed reports that the party has pruned down the list of 23 presidential aspirants of the APC to 13.
