Ahead of the national convention of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) fixed for Wednesday, the party will commence screening of aspirants for various offices to be contested during the exercise.

However indications on Sunday were that the party may not go into the convention with much expected unity as the former national chairman, Senator Ali Modu Sheriff, has insisted that he would not be part of it.

In a statement issued on Sunday by the Chairman of the National Convention Committee and Governor of Rivers State, Nyesom Wike, the party asked all aspirants to present themselves to the screening committee with their original certificates, original nomination forms and photocopies.

The statement signed by the Chairman, Publicity Sub-Committee, Chief Onyema Ugochukwu, also summoned all aspirants to a meeting with the National Convention committee on Monday.
