Sen. David Mark, the committee’s chairman, stated this on Friday after the committee finished reviewing the party’s 17 candidates.
He, on the other hand, refused to reveal the names of the disqualified candidates or the reasons for their exclusion.
He stated that the two PDP presidential aspirants did not meet the qualifications for the post they were applying for.
The N40 million each paid for the expression of interest and nomination forms is expected to be forfeited by the disqualified candidates.
According to one of the hopefuls, Sen Anyim Pius Anyim, the screening was intended to examine the applicants’ membership and financial status, academic credentials, and other constitutional requirements for presidential candidates.
Meanwhile, a Chief Magistrate Court in Port Harcourt detained fifteen people in prison after they were accused of disturbing the screening process at the PDP secretariat in Rivers State, .
They were charged with conspiracy, unlawful assembling, and conduct likely to cause breach of peace before Chief Magistrate A. O. Amadi-Nna.
After hearing the lawyers’ arguments, Chief Magistrate Amadi-Nna delayed the case to May 26 for consideration of the bail motion.
According to our source, the defendants have pled not guilty to the accusations.
