Anambra Governorship: Andy Uba Speaks On Defection Claims
Losing the primary elections of any political party could be very annoying especially when the aspirant suspects foul play.
The All Progressive Congress (APC) recently held a primary election to pick a candidate that will vie for the Governorship of Anambra State and Senator Andy Uba lost that race.
Rumours of planned defection to the PDP by Senator Uba trailed his defeat, but he says the rumours are lies.
Senator Uba, who is from Anambra South, told reporters on Tuesday in his country home in Uga, Anambra, that there is no plan to dump the APC for a new party.
“Let us 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 of the APC,’’ he said.
Uba emerged second with 931 votes at the just-concluded APC primary election, losing to Tony Nwoye.
Uba and Nwoye were members of the PDP before defecting to APC.
Nwoye will be contesting in the governorship election that will hold on November 18.
