- Enugu chapter of the APC tells Andy Uba and other aspirants who lost in the party's primaries to support the winner, Tony Nwoye
- The party’s spokesperson, Kate Ofor, says the APC will emerge victorious in the election against Governor Obiano of Anambra state
- PDP governorship aspirant in the Anambra poll, Ifeanyi Ubah, says only the court can stop his ambition
Senator Andy Uba has been urged by the Enugu state chapter of the All Progressives Congress (APC) to accept his defeat following the outcome of the August 26 primaries in the state.
The publicity secretary of the Enugu chapter of the party, Kate Ofor, in a statement on Wednesday, September 20, urged Uba and other aspirants who lost in the primaries to support the winner, Tony Nwoye, The Sun reports.
The party's spokesperson said the support for Nwoye would enable the APC emerge victorious in the November 18 Anambra governorship election.
Ofor congratulated Nwoye for getting the APC guber ticket against all odds.
She said the party will emerge victorious in the election against Governor Obiano whose performance she said was couched in propaganda.
“APC’s mission is to rescue Anambra State from Chief Obiano whose performance is better couched in propaganda; when you compare the over N70 billion he inherited from Peter Obi his predecessor, billions from federal allocations and humongous internal generated revenue, Obiano has not only performed below the expectation of Ndi-Anambra in the past four years, but has also unduly consigned Ndi-Anambra and by extension Ndigbo to the periphery in Nigerian politics," Ofor said.
Meanwhile, a governorship aspirant on Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) platform in the forthcoming poll in Anambra, Ifeanyi Ubah, said only the court could stop his ambition.
He alleged that the party’s primary election conducted to pick its candidate for the poll, was fraught with irregularities and that the party leadership had refused to address his complaints on it. Ubah made this known at a news conference in Abuja on Tuesday, and said that he would continue with his aspiration until his complaints were addressed by the party.
He said that he would approach the court to seek his right after exhausting all the internal mechanisms to address the issues as stipulated in PDP Constitution.
