Candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in just concluded governorship election in Anambra state, Sen. Andy Uba, has warned his opponents to stop demonizing him over his plan to challenge the outcome of the election in court.

Uba said he decided to choose a civil means to recover his mandate, while warning the victorious All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA) to rather prepare to meet him in court, instead of condemning his decision.

Uba disclosed this in a press statement by the director of media and publicity of his campaign organisation, Hon. Afam Ogene in Awka.

“We wondered why several days after the polls, Uba’s opponents, especially members of the All Progressives Grand Alliance, APGA, still find it fashionable to conjure all manner of falsehood in his name.

“The elections have come and gone and we are in the process of interrogating the sanctity of its outcome. But instead of gearing up for the expected judicial battle ahead, APGA as a party and its leaders are busy trolling my person, in the mistaken believe that their underhand tactics would make me back out of my chosen course of action.

“I have only decided to take a civilised course of action, which is a recourse to the judiciary in the face of daunting illegalities that trailed the conduct of the elections. How this is so discomfitting to some, leading to the sponsorship of several false stories about my person, beats the imagination of all reasonable members of society.”

Ogene said APGA-led government has been spending a lot from Anambra coffers to jump from one media house to another in defence of a mandate they knew they never won.

“While leading members of APGA and their supporters gallivant from one television station to another spending resources belonging to our state in undisguised attempts at demonizing Senator Uba, the propaganda wing of the party does the same by busying itself churning out one badly cooked story after another.

“In one of such fairy tales, a nondescript online rendezvous claimed that Senator Uba was lamenting that Governor Hope Uzodinma of Imo state was no longer picking his calls. Nothing else could be farther than the truth, as it is public knowledge that as Chairman of the APC National Campaign Council, Sen. Uba owes the Imo state governor a huge debt of gratitude for his financial and leadership roles in the electioneering process.

“In deed, we regard this foolish tale as part of a deliberate ploy by APGA to get as many APC chieftains as possible at odds with Sen. Uba. The first, we recall, was the infantile story of dragging the Anambra State Deputy Governor, Dr Nkem Okeke, before an imaginary deity, and then an attempt at casting aspersions on the image of Distinguished Senator Stella Oduah, for the simple reason that she decided to pitch her tent with us in the APC.

“Although we are quite aware that several of such devious propaganda materials have been made ready for diseminnation, we urge discerning members of the public to disregard same whenever they summon the courage to push them out – believing, as we do, that in the final analysis, justice shall be last served,” he said.
