Andy Uba Defects To APC


Dipo Awojobi – Senator Andy Uba has dumped the Peoples Democratic Party for the All Progressives Congress.

This is coming weeks after Ken Nnamani, Orji Uzor Kalu and top politicians from South East dumped the opposition party for the ruling party.

Uba is representing Anambra South Senatorial zone under the platform of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).

He announced his defection at a news briefing on Wednesday, February 1,  in his home country, Uga, Aguata Local Government Area of the state.

The lawmaker said he joined the APC at the ongoing registration of party members in the state.

According to him, APC has ideology and focus which he needs to tap into to provide quality representation to his constituents.

Uba further said that he joined the APC because of other personalities in the party with sound ideas and whom he looks up to in politics.

He listed some of the personalities to include the Minister of Labour and Employment, Senator Chris Ngige, and APC National Auditor, Chief George Muoghalu.

Uba stressed that with that caliber of people, the party will take the state to enviable heights.

The senator said he will be very effective in serving the yearnings of his people more now that he is in APC and urged other Igbo politicians to join the bandwagon.
