SENATOR Andy Uba has
described as untrue news
making the rounds that he
planned to dump the All
Progressive Congress (APC)
for the Peoples Democratic
Party (PDP) following the
victory of Sen. Ahmed
Makarfi at the Apex Court. In a statemnet signed by
Joseph Itazi, Media Aide to
Sen. Uba, the lawmaker said
that he would not return to the
PDP simply because his frien
Makarfi had won his legal battle
for chairmanship of the Party.
He said that his decision to
join the APC was because he
believed in the change agenda
of the party adding that the
party held a better promise to
transform Nigeria.
Senator Uba joined the APC
in February and soon after
declared his interes to contest the
Anambra governorship election which has been scheduled for
November 2017.
While joining the APC in
February, Uba said during
a press conference that his
decision was spurred by the
idea of the party and some of
the personalities in the change
He listed such personalities
to include the Minister of
Labour and Employment,
Sen. Chris Ngige, and APC
National Auditor, Chief George
The APC governorship
aspirant therefore stressed that
the recent news of his planned
return to the PDP were the
antics of his detractors and those
afraid of his looming popularity
and growing chances of picking
the APC ticket.
“The fact that Senator Ahmed
Makarfi is Andy Uba’s good
friend and ally doesn’t translate
to leaving the APC for PDP.
“Senator Uba is not a come
and go politician, his ideology is
constant, good governance is of
the essence and that is what he
has found in the APC.
“The speculation about Sen
Uba moving back to the PDP
simply because the Markafi
faction won its case at the
Supreme Court as being
speculated is false and should
be disregarded.
“Let us add the fact that the
APC remains the only political
party that is positioned to
salvage Anambra State from
the misery, mismanagement
and under-development
situations in which she has
unfortunately found herself,
why then should a star
studded aspirant like Sen
Uba leave such a platform?”
The statement said.
