Senator Andy Uba yesterday led 40 senators to obtain the expression of interest and nomination forms to contest the upcoming governorship election in Anambra State.
The senator representing Anambra South Senatorial District stated that he was best placed to become the governor since he is experienced and possesses the wherewithal to challenge the incumbent APGA governor, Chief Willie Obiano.
He stated this while addressing media men at the national secretariat of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Abuja yesterday.
He said: “I came here to pick up my nomination form with my colleagues. We are 40 senators including myself 41 of us, we are here to pick up my nomination form for the governorship of Anambra State which is for November 18, 2017. That is why I am here.
“If you look at all of us that are running, who has the best chance? Who has the experience? I have been a governor in Anambra state before, two, I have been senator two times. I have my structure in the state. I don’t see why I cant win the election.
“Those that are running, I have not heard anything they have done, they have not won election and they are not prepared to win election. We need somebody with capacity and i know that we have that capacity to remove the sitting governor.
On allegation of certificate forgery levelled against him, he said: “it is a very wicked lie, it is a blackmail, they are just trying to sabotage me, they know that I’m on the ground, they know what I have done for Anambra State and constituency, you can go and check. No senator has done what I have done in Anambra State. So I have evidence, it is there.
