The ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) has dismissed ten presidential candidates.

This follows the screening of 23 presidential candidates by the All Progressives Congress Screening Committee.

On Friday, June 3, 2022, Odigie-Oyegun, the Chairman of the screening committee, made this known when he handed the findings of his seven-member panel to the party’s national chairman, Senator Abdullahi Adamu, at the party’s national headquarters.

Other APC presidential aspirants assessed by the panel include Senate President Ahmad Lawan and former ministers Rotimi Amaechi, Ogbonnaya Onu, Godswill Akpabio, and Chukwuemeka Nwajiuba, in addition to Vice President Yemi Osinbajo and former Lagos State Governor Bola Tinubu.

Kayode Fayemi (Ekiti), Yahaya Bello (Kogi), Dave Umahi (Ebonyi), Ben Ayade (Cross River), and Badaru Abubakar(Jigawa), all serving governors, were also vetted.

Former Senate President Ken Nnamani, former Speaker of the House of Representatives Dimeji Bankole, and current senators Ibikunle Amosun, Ajayi Boroffice, and Rochas Okorocha are among the others.

Pastor Tunde Bakare, Uju Ken-Ohanenye, Nicholas Felix, Ahmad Rufai Sani, Tein Jack-Rich, and Ikeobasi Mokelu, President Muhammadu Buhari’s running partner in 2011, were also vetted.

According to Oyegun, the committee cleared just 13 of the 23 applicants that were screened.

Without giving names, he implied that young aspirants made the list of cleared applicants.

The screening procedure was held in Abuja on Monday and Tuesday.

The approved contenders are slated to fight the APC presidential primary in a special convention in Abuja between June 6 and June 8, according to a previously disclosed timetable by the party.
