The Peoples Democratic Party on Thursday screened 29 governorship aspirants from the three states of the South East region for the 2023 general elections.
The aspirants who were screened were three from Abia State, 10 from Ebonyi State and 16 from Enugu State.
Though the committee did not address newsmen after the screening, some of the aspirants who spoke lauded the process.
An aspirant from Enugu State, 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 during the party’s primary election.
Another aspirant, Senator 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,” Ogba said.
Briefing them, the Secretary of the PDP, South East, 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 programmes and if we discover that anybody among them is busy running anyone down, the zone will definitely take action against the person.”
