Makarfi is my good friend but I won’t quit APC – Senator Andy Uba




The Senator representing Anambra South Senatorial District, Andy Uba, has debunked speculations that he is set to quit the All Progressives Congress (APC) for the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).

In a statement signed by his media aide, Mr Arinze Igboeli, Uba on Tuesday said the rumour of his defection was the handiwork of his detractors.


He claimed that some elements were afraid of his chances of picking the APC governorship ticket for
the Anambra November 18 poll.

“The fact that Senator Ahmed Makarfi is Andy Uba’s good friend and ally doesn’t translate to leaving the APC for PDP.

“Senator Uba is not a come and go politician, his ideology is constant, good governance is of the essence and that is what he has found in the APC.

“The speculation about Sen. Uba moving back to the PDP simply because the Makarfi faction won its case at the Supreme Court as being speculated is false and should be disregarded.

“Let us add the fact that the APC remains the only political party that is positioned to salvage Anambra State from the misery, mismanagement and under-development situations in which she has unfortunately found herself.

“Why then should a star studded aspirant like Sen Uba leave such a platform?,” Uba queried.Uba, who was elected on the platform of PDP, dumped the party and joined the APC about six months ago.
