He said: “I’m sure most of you have been through this before. And I’m sure when you look around you, look to your left you look to your right, you will see amongst and around you somebody who is full of integrity and somebody who is here as a result of merit.


“We have a very strong party, we have a big party. And we’re committed that we deliver the right candidates for the forthcoming elections. We have no doubt that the distinguished ladies and gentlemen assembled here will do just that.

“I wouldn’t want to go into details because we all know ourselves, and we have tried to engage you in a manner that you will also bring your experience to the fore.

“With this, I don’t want to take much of our time. I’d like to welcome you to this auspicious event.
And I know there’s a long long hurdle ahead of all of us, like I said, this is not the first time we’re exposed to this either as a panellist or as an aspirant went through the process of screening and sometimes those into the wee hours of the morning. I would like to at this point plead with you to be patient, screen thoroughly so that we can have the best of the best.”
