The party warned that it would not come to the aid of any aspirant with cases of misconduct, including fraud and conviction, who does not use the opportunity provided by the screening exercise to divulge it before the panel.

Other questions posed to the aspirants covered evidence of disengagement from their place of work, payment of N7,600 annual dues and clearance in case of conviction. 

The committee, however, gave a window of opportunity for some aspirants who had issues with payment of annual dues and their credentials.

Each aspirant was also asked to state what he knew on the contents of the manifesto of the ruling party during the screening.
