The All Progressives Congress (APC)governorship candidate for the forthcoming Nov 6,2021 poll in Anambra state, Senator Uba has asked party faithful to remain steadfast that the party would win the election free, fair and square.
He spoke amid whispers that federal and state lawmakers were about to dump the ruling party in the state, the All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA) for his party.
According to him, “We will work hard to win this election”.
Addressing APC members and supporters at Onitsha during a visit to a member of the Board of Trustees of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) who recently joined APC, -Senator Joy Emordi, said “We will run issue- based campaigns to win the election free, fair and square”.
Emordi in her remark noted that, “…this is the time for the Ndigbo to join politics at the centre.
“We should join hands to make Nigeria great and there is no other way to do it than to work with the party at the centre.
“I don’t have any fear that APC will not win the November 6 governorship election; and by the grace of God, with the quality of politicians from different parties joining the fray, it will happen”, she noted.
Other to political bigwigs in the state including the former Minister of State for Aviation, Prince John Emeka, of the PDP and the immediate past Speaker of the State Assembly, Rita Maduagwuna, of the All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA) were received into the APC at the colorful ocassion.
Also, despite the reported recent meetings by members of the APGA in the Anambra State House of Assembly with Gov Willie Obiano, some are said to be concluding arrangements to move to the APC.
