Senator Andy Uba has said that he had not left the All Progressives Congress, APC, for the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, or any other party over the outcome of the Anambra governorship primaries.
The senator representing Anambra senatorial district Senator Andy Uba has debunk the rumour of his defection from the All Progressive Congress, APC for a new party.
Uba while addressing journalists at his country home in Uga, Anambra state, debunked rumours making the rounds that he planned to dump the APC for a new party.
In a statement issued by his media aide, Joseph Itazi, over the weekend the senator stressed that he was still a supporter of the party irrespective of the outcome of the party’s primaries.
“Let’s put the record straight, I have no intention of leaving our great party APC for another party.
“I have always supported the party, so please people should stop spreading false news that I am planning to defect to another party.
“I am still a member APC,” Uba said.
Sen Uba emerged second with 931 votes at the just concluded APC primary election losing to Tony Nwoye, a member of the House of Representatives.
Both Uba and Nwoye were members of the PDP before defecting to APC to pursue further political careers.
The position of governor of Anambra is usually keenly contested in a landscape ruled by “money bags”. Election violence is rift.
