The APC leader disclosed that the names of aspirants who have been adequately screened should be submitted to the party’s national secretariat for the issuing of certificates allowing them to participate in the primaries.


He made these remarks on Tuesday at the launch of screening committees for State House of Assembly candidates and party delegates.

Argungun encouraged the screening committees to follow Section 84(3) of the Electoral Act 2022 in their actions.

The committees’ responsibilities, according to him, include reviewing applicants’ minimum educational criteria, sponsors, and receipts for expressions of interest and nomination forms.

“It is the proof of payment receipt that qualifies each aspirant to contest. You should also check their sponsors, and if anybody goes against section 84(3) of the electoral act as amended, he stands disqualified.
