Anambra Guber: Why Andy Uba is the best candidate- Dep gov

The Deputy Governor of Anambra State, Dr Nkem Okeke who has just decamped to APC has met with the governorship candidate of the party,  Senator Andy Uba.

It should be noted that Okeke  recently left the All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA), where he holds a joint ticket with the state governor, Chief Willie Obiano, to join APC.

In a press statement, the director of media and publicity of the Andy Uba campaign organisation, it says Hon Afam Ogene, Okeke met Uba in Abuja, where he described him as the choice of Anambra people.

Okeke said that the emergence of Senator Andy Uba as the APC’s gubernatorial candidate as the best thing that ever happened to the state in the last few years.

He said: “All over Anambra, and indeed the South east region, the dominant complaint is the feeling of alienation by our people in the affairs of our country. And when you are so challenged, do you further go into your cocoon, or do you seek accommodation and understanding from your other compatriots?

“For me, the Nigerian project is bigger and desirable than the craving of any individual, or component part of the country. We must all sit as equals, on the table of brotherhood, to negotiate the needs and aspirations of all our people, including the South east.”

He also took a swipe at those who seek to downplay the essence of his defection to the APC.

He promised to support the emergence of Senator Uba as governor-elect after the November 6, 2021 election.

Some other notable politicians during at the visit included Chuma Mbonu, board member, Consumer Protection Council of Nigeria, Hon. Vivian Okadigbo, former House of Assembly member, Oyi 1 constituency, Engineer Nkemakonam Ifeanyi, a businessman, Chief Johnbosco Anaedobe, as well as the duo of Dr. Sulaiman Bakari and Hon. Yusuf Ali.
