The National Working Committee of the All Progressives Congress (APC) has released the list of screen candidates of the party. The APC Governorship candidates list was released after screening the different candidates contesting in their states.
The APC Governorship candidates list is divided into the various Geo-Political zones and states of Nigeria, with the name of the candidates and a final column for those cleared and not cleared.
A few of those cleared had reasons (like Adebayo Shittu in Oyo state) for not having NYSC certificates while some like Aisha Al-Hassan from Taraba State has no reason.
The rest were described as not cleared without reasons while some candidates that have been campaigning under the APC platform did not make the list like Kenneth Okonkwo in Enugu State.
Imo State has 9 candidates including Uche Nwosu, Hope Uzodinma, Eze Madumere among others.
Lagos State has Akinwunmi Ambode, Kadir Obafemi Hamzat and Jide Sanya-Olu all cleared. The complete APC Governorship List can be seen below;
