- The victory of Senator Andy Uba at the just concluded APC primary in Anambra has been endorsed by the state working committee
- Also, the SWC said it is necessary for the party not to be divided against itself in the forthcoming election
- Meanwhile, the leaders called on all aggrieved members to postpone their ambition and work for the common good of the party
The State Working Committee of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Anambra state says it has endorsed the election of Senator Andy Uba as the duly elected candidate of the party.
This was made known by SWC chairman, Chief Basil Ejidike, according to Andy Mba.
He said since no situation was perfect, the party could not afford to accommodate any form of internal wranglings that will eventually cost the party at the guber polls.
Chief Basil Ejidike stated that the election had come and gone and that a winner had emerged.
He consequently urged all the aspirants to join hands with the party and the winner to win the guber polls.
"As party chairman, I am a keen stakeholder in this process, likewise other officers of the SWC, we cannot, given the circumstances available, deny ourselves the opportunity of fielding a candidate and winning the guber elections."
"This has informed our decision to unanimously endorse Senator Andy Uba as our candidate for the November 6 polls, this decision is in tandem with the prevailing reality, APC must present a candidate at the polls otherwise we have no reason for existing as a political party."
Unprecedented campaign victory
Recall that Legit.ng had reported that Uba revealed how he will carry out his campaign if given the party's ticket.
Uba said his 2007 campaign will be a child’s play if his party gives him the governorship ticket for the next guber poll.
The APC chieftain said his campaign in all the 326 wards and 21 local government areas in Anambra gave him overwhelming victory during the 2007 election.
He claimed that his campaign record at the time has not been equalled by any governorship candidate in the southeast state to date.
PDP will win the election
In another report, Governor Nyesom Wike of Rivers state has expressed confidence in the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) cruising to a massive victory in the Anambra guber election.
Addressing PDP leaders in the southeast on Monday, February 8, in Enugu, to reconcile Anambra stakeholders, Governor Wike said winning the governorship election is crucial for the party.
He said all stakeholders must unite and work together in order to avoid a scene that played out in the Ondo election in which the APC won.
