The People’s Democratic Party (PDP) has screened 29 candidates from three South East states ahead of 2023.
The candidates were three from Abia, 10 from Ebonyi and 16 from Enugu.
Although the committee did not speak to reporters after their list, some who wanted to speak highly commended the program.
The aspirant from Enugu, Josef Onoh, expressed satisfaction with the exercise, saying it was smooth and beautiful.
Mr Onoh said he had submitted all the required paperwork and hoped to participate during the party’s general election.
Another aspirant, Obinna Ogba, representing the Ebonyi Central Senatorial District, said she had provided everything she needed, adding that it was free exercise.
“It did not take me up to two minutes to do mine,” he said.
Briefing them, the Secretary of 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,” Mr Ugwu said.
