Anambra APC Patriots Battery Support for Uba


Supporters of the All Progressives Congress, led by Anambra APC Patriots, have called on all those who lost the just-concluded governor’s primary to accept defeat.

The group urged all party leaders to support the winner, Senator Andy Uba, in the general interest of the party.

Eleven candidates for the post of governor of the APC rejected the conduct of the primary while accusing Uba of hijacking the process.

The group, made up mostly of former federal and state lawmakers, spoke at a press conference in Awka on Wednesday.

A former member of the House of Representatives, Victor Ogene, who spoke to the press on behalf of the group said: “As it stands, the party and its base have spoken. We therefore congratulate our standard bearer, His Excellency Senator Andy Uba, on his appointment.

“In almost all elections, including those conducted by the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, such problems are easily noticeable; however, this does not vitiate the outcome of the competition.

“As it stands, the primaries have been held and a winner has been announced by the chairman of the committee, Prince Dapo Abiodun, Governor of Ogun State.

“We therefore urge all members of our party to accept the result, congratulate the winner and work diligently to ensure that we win the main election.”
