Anambra 2017: In Pursuit Of Governorship Ambition, Andy Uba Defects To APC


Ahead of the Anambra State governorship election billed for November this year, the Peoples Democratic Party(PDP), senator representing Anambra South Senatorial zone,  Andy Uba, has defected to the All ruling Progressives Congress(APC).

Uba’s move confirms earlier rumours that he would soon make a switch to the ruling party in pursuit of a life-long ambition to rule the State.

The senator, who owes his major achievements in politics so far to the former ruling party, PDP, said that he joined the APC because it has ideology and focus which are essential for him to tap into so as to give quality representation to his constituents.

He made his defection official at a news briefing in his home town, Uga, Aguata Local Government Area of the state on Wednesday, adding that he joined the ruling APC by registering as its member in the party’s ongoing re-registration exercise in the state.

Another reason Uba gave as warranting him to dump the PDP for APC was that the ruling party has personalities with sound ideas.

Among these personalities, he said, are Minister of Labour and Employment, Sen. Chris Ngige and APC National Auditor, Chief George Muoghalu.

The senator, who claimed that with such personalities APC party will take the state to enviable heights, said that by joining them, he would be very efficient in living up to the longings of his people.

The state chapter of APC had in a recent statement claimed that Uba, among several other politicians in the state, some of them staunch PDP members, have indicated their desire to aspire for the state number one position in the coming November governorship election in the state.
