At least, 98 candidates are aspiring for the 24 seats of the Gombe State House of Assembly on the platform of People’s Democratic Party (PDP), says the chairman, screening committee of the party, Mr Regis Ukwakwe. Ukwakwe disclosed this while briefing newsmen on the conduct of the screening of aspirants in Gombe on Saturday. He said the aim of the screening was to make sure that successful candidates seeking such elective office in the party avoid any problem at the tribunal. According to him, the committee has screened 64 candidates, including former commissioners and retired permanent secretaries, adding that the exercise had been hitch-free, so far. He expressed optimism that those that would scale through the exercise would be people of moral standing. “We want to make sure that we present the best candidates who are strong and have the capacity to win opponents,” he said.
