Uba dispels rumoured return to PDP, says APC provides better deal for Nigerians
The Senator representing Anambra South Senatorial District, Andy Uba, on Tuesday dismissed the speculation that he had quit the All Progressive Congress for the Peoples Democratic Party.
He insisted that the change agenda of the APC promised a better deal to transform Nigeria.
In a statement made available to our correspondent by his media aide, Mr Arinze Igboeli, Uba said the rumour of his defection to the Peoples Democratic Party was the handiwork of his detractors, and those afraid of his looming popularity and growing chances of picking the APC governorship ticket for the Anambra November 18 poll.
Uba who was elected on the platform of PDP dumped the platform and joined the APC about six months ago.
The Senator said, “The fact that Senator Ahmed Makarfi is Andy Uba’s good friend and ally doesn’t translate to leaving the APC for PDP.
“Senator Uba is not a come and go politician, his ideology is constant, good governance is of the essence and that is what he has found in the APC.
“The speculation about Sen. Uba moving back to the PDP simply because the Makarfi faction won its case at the Supreme Court as being speculated is false and should be disregarded.
“Let us add the fact that the APC remains the only political party that is positioned to salvage Anambra State from the misery, mismanagement and under-development situations in which she has unfortunately found herself.
“Why then should a star studded aspirant like Sen Uba leave such a platform?”
