An All Progressives Congress (APC) gubernatorial aspirant in Anambra state, Senator Andy Uba has vowed to unseat the incumbent governor, Willie Obiano, in the forthcoming November 2017 governorship election in the state.
Uba, who represents Anambra West in the senate, made the vow during a sensitization tour to various local government areas in the state.
“Anambra state needs someone like me who has resources and connection to turn things around and bring federal presence, employment and infrastructure to the state,” Uba said.
For now, Uba is still a candidate and has to scale the hurdle of the APC primary first before slugging it out with the governor, in the event that the governor is also chosen by his party, the All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA).
Uba however expressed certitude that he will clinch the APC’s ticket.
He said that he has wide-ranging experience in politics and also pledged to attract the dividends of democracy to the state ‘when’ elected.
He guaranteed his maximum support and assistance to the leadership of the party in the state that will enable them carry out their various duties.
The Senator said his donation of 24 vehicles to all the Local Government Areas in the state, party chairmen and bags of rice with cash support to party faithful, were demonstration of his commitment to Anambra.
A member of the House of Representatives, Hon. Linda Ikpeazu, joined Uba at the Onitsha North local government. She urged the people to give their total support to Senator Uba.
Recalling how he attracted employment to Anambra indigenes during the Obasanjo administration, she described the Senator as a determined and generous representative.
The governorship aspirant, at Ogidi, Idemili North LGA and Ojoto Idemili South LGA, pledged that his administration will be all inclusive, devoid of discrimination and marginalization for the benefit of all.
In his vote of thanks, the zonal leader of the party in Anambra North senatorial zone assured Senator Uba of maximum support during the primary election.
He expressed confidence that the senator would emerge at the primary election and go on to win the governorship election.
