I’m still in APC, says Uba

Sen. Andy Uba says he has not defected from the All Progressives Congress (APC) to the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) over the outcome of the Anambra governorship primaries.

Uba (APC-Anambra South) made this known to newsmen at his country home in Uga, Anambra, on Tuesday.

He debunked reports making the rounds that he planned to dump the APC for a new party.

In a statement issued by his media aide, Mr Joseph Itazi, the senator said that he was still a supporter of the APC, irrespective of the outcome of the party’s primaries.

“Let us put the record straight, I have no intention of leaving our great party APC – for another party.

“I have always supported the party, so please people should stop spreading false news that I am planning to defect to another party.

“I am still a member of the APC,’’ he said.

Uba emerged second with 931 votes at the just-concluded APC primary election, losing to Mr Tony Nwoye.

Uba and Nwoye were members of the PDP before defecting to APC.
