The Presidential Screening Committee of All Progressives Congress (APC) has disqualified 10 aspirants from its primaries scheduled for next week.

Chairman of the Committee, Chief John Oyegun, who made the revelation this Friday, however declined naming the disqualified aspirants.

According to Oyegun, only 13 out of the 23 aspirants screened were cleared by the committee.

Asked to reveal the identity of the disqualified aspirants, Oyegun declined.

He however said that contrary to rumours making the rounds, his committee did not screen former President Goodluck Jonathan.

It would be recalled that the committee held the screening exercise between Monday and Tuesday this week.

Only the cleared aspirants are expected to contest the presidential primary at a scheduled special convention in Abuja between June 6 and 8. This is notwithstanding that the 10 disqualified aspirants paid N100 million each to the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) for the forms.
