Two of the Peoples Democratic Party’s 17 presidential Aspirants were disqualified on Friday.
The two hopefuls would lose the N40 million they paid for the expression of interest and nomination forms if they were disqualified.
Senator David Mark, the head of the presidential screening committee, announced the exclusion of the two candidates on Friday evening.
Mark, on the other hand, turned down a request from media to divulge the names of the disqualified candidates and the reason(s) for their disqualification.
When asked if the screening committee recommended that the party reimburse the aspirants’ N80 million nomination fees, Mark said, “Why should the party pay the money?”
