The rulling All Progressives Congress (APC) has announced that the screening of the 28 presidential candidates who submitted their nomination forms have been shifted to May 23.

APC also observed that some of the aspirants have started withdrawing from the presidential race.

APC National Organising Secretary, Sulaiman Argungu, confirmed this in a statement on Saturday.

Argungu disclosed that the clarification became necessary after the party was inundated with calls and messages by worried aspirants and delegates, who wanted to know why the presidential category was left out of the weekend’s two-day exercise.

“The screening for the presidential aspirants, we have so far 28 presidential aspirants.

“As you are all aware, some aspirants have started withdrawing their aspirations. By God’s grace, on 23rd of this month, those who are left will be screened properly,” he said.
