Ive not hijacked Anambra APCs revalidation, says Uba

A top member of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Anambra State, Senator Andy Uba, has said the allegation that he has hijacked the party’s registration and revalidation is false and uncalled for.

Uba, one of the top contenders for the APC governorship ticket in the November 6 election, said the rumour about him trying to hijack the exercise was false, and should be discarded.

Uba, in a statement yesterday in Awka by his media office, said: “As you can see, the APC in Anambra State has been having a seamless registration where citizens, owing to the numerous successes of the Federal Government in the state, are daily registering in their hundreds with the party.

“Part of this success can be attributed to the efforts of Senator Andy Uba, who mobilises every ward in the party with funds and logistics to encourage the people to identify with the party in this current registration.

“It is surprising to see stories running wild with frivolous allegations on an attempt by our principal to hijack the process.

“Such stories even accuse supporters of the senator, both imaginary and real, of attacking the state party Chairman, Chief Basil Ejidike. But these are false.

“We wonder why any right thinking person should make such wild accusations, and what Senator Uba stands to benefit from derailing the registration as alleged by these mischievous few.

“We, therefore, urge party members and the public to disregard such allegations.”

The office said Uba was interested in the growth of the APC in Anambra State, and had demonstrated so many times.

It said what is paramount to the senator is unity of the party so that whosoever gets its ticket after the primaries will emerge victorious after the governorship election on November 6.
