You were duped by politicians, APGA group tells Andy Uba

The APGA Media Warriors, a political group within the All Progressives Grand Alliance Group have dismissed claims by the candidate of the All Progressives Congress, Andy Uba that the just concluded Anambra election was fraught with irregularities.

The group said the former senator who came a very distant third in the November 6 poll was duped by defectors, stressing that he (Uba) should thank his stars that he even won his ward in the election.

Recall that Uba had after a stakeholders’ meeting in Awka on Saturday said he had discovered that besides having enough grounds to challenge the declaration of Prof Charles Soludo as governor-elect by the Independent National Electoral Commission, the entire election was not conducted in substantial compliance with the rules governing such exercise.

Reacting, the National co-ordinator of APGA Media Warriors Forum, Chinedu Obigwe, in a press conference in Awka, the Anambra State capital said Uba’s decision to challenge the outcome of the poll in court would compound his woes.

He said, “Ndi Anambra will defend the mandate they gave to Soludo and will not allow Andy Uba to steal their mandate through the court.

“He claimed that Anambra electorate voted for him and at the same time alleged that the election witnessed widespread manipulation.

“Uba is the only one that holds this strange opinion about the concluded Anambra election.

“Majority of his party members led by Senator Chris Ngige, George Moghalu and many others are of the opinion that the election was peaceful, free, fair, credible and devoid of manipulation hence the reason they congratulated Soludo.

“Andy Uba should wake up from his slumber so that he will realise that he was duped by those that defected to APC during the electioneering for the November 6th election.

“None of them joined APC to help him win the election rather they joined APC to get their own share of the money he was sharing.

“He should console himself for winning his polling units.”
