The screening of the Presidential Aspirants of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), is in progress in Abuja.

The 10-man Screening Committee is being headed by a one time Vice President, Namadi Sambo and the exercise is being held at the Party’s Presidential Campaign Office, the Legacy House.

Those already screened are former Vice President Atiku Abubakar, Sokoto State Governor, Waziri Aminu Tambuwal, Dr Datti Ahmed, the President of the Senate, Senator Bukola Saraki, former Plateau State Governor Jonas Jang, and the immediate past Chairman of the National Caretaker Committee of the Party, Senator Ahmed Makarfi.

Others present and waiting on the queue are Alhaji Ataihiru Bafarawa, Rabiu Kwakwanso, Alhaji Sule Lamido, Dr Kabiri Taminu Turaki, and Governor Ibrahim Dankwambo of Gombe State.

Emerging from the screening hall, duo of Atiku and Tambuwal described the exercise as very fine and friendly.

They, however, called on the INEC to do the needful by declaring the Party’s Candidate, Sen Ademola Adeleke the rightful winner of the last Saturday’s governorship election in Osun State in the interest of peace.
