Certain key and incontrovertible elements set Senator Andy Uba, the APC's candidate, on a higher pedestal than other heavyweights who waiting to take the Anambra governorship seat come Saturday, November 6.

Between 2007 and 2015, the APC lawmaker has at least four election victories attached to his name. And as such, he has a strong footing ahead of the poll.
2. APC magic
Admittedly,y the ruling party is not the most popular political platform in the southeast. But recent defections show that it is beginning to make major in-roads into the region and Anambra can be another object of breakthrough.
If all things work according to grand and well-coordinated plans, Anambra might end up entering the list of APC states in the November 6 election.
3. Federal might
One cannot shy away from the fact that the federal might factor is evident in most elections in Nigeria. Uba is the only candidate who can use this profitably in less than a month's time without necessarily being entangled in allegations of rigging afterward.
Yes, the stakes are, but for a candidate with Uba's calibre, the terrain is familiar and the relentless politician is not from getting back his 2007 mandate.
