He, however, said some of the aspirants, whose documents were not complete, promised to come back to complete the aspect of documentation.

He said that the committee would present its report to the party after the conclusion of the exercise.

“We feel like everyone should have a level playing ground, with no opportunity to say they were screened out deliberately.

“The screening is going on till 5pm pm today. PDP is the party that wants to give people opportunity provided you play by the rules of the game.

“If a candidate tells us he forgot a document and he is going to bring his document before 5pm, Why not?

“We don’t want to give them the impression that the party has a candidate it supports. Only few persons are involved in this case,” he said.

However, Egwu refused to speak again with newsmen after the conclusion of the exercise by 6pm.

Though, none of the aspirants spoke with newsmen, only two of them, Ebiseni and Ajayi displayed their clearance certificates before the camera.
