Sen. Andy Uba says he has not defected from the All Progressives Congress to the Peoples Democratic Party 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.
