A group, under the auspices of the ‘South-East APC Presidency 2023’, has advised Senator Andy Uba of the All Progressives Congress, (APC), against challenging the outcome of the just concluded Anambra state governorship election, from which Professor Charles Chukwuma Soludo emerged as the winner.
The Group said, Senator Uba will be pitching himself against the people of Anambra state if he dares challenge Prof. Soludo’s victory.
Recall that, the Anambra state chairman of APC, Basil Ejidike, in a statement issued shortly before the announcement of the gubernatorial election result, said, the party will resist the election outcome, if the All Progressives Grand Alliance, (APGA), candidate, Prof. Soludo wins.
In a statement signed on Friday, by Dr. Chinedu Jideofo-Ogbuagau, Coordinator of the ‘South-East APC Presidency 2023’, the Group urged Senator Uba, not to waste his energy, and resources, on what is referred to as, ‘all ill-advised court cases.’
In the words of the APC Group:
“Don’t waste your resources and energy in all ill-advised court cases that would reduce you to nothing in the eyes of ndi-Anambra, ndigbo, and moral Nigeria…”; “Going to court to challenge the victory of Prof. Chukwuma Charles Soludo of APGA, would pitch you against all Anambra and against common sense.”
The APC 2023 Presidential Group continued:
“If those urging you to go to court truly love you, they would arrange a ministerial appointment, or another top government appointment for you,” … “You need rest and should not allow anyone to use you to destabilize any part of the southeast, and even Nigeria’s democracy itself…”
The Group again emphasized,
“You, Senator Andy Uba, former Governor of Anambra state, don’t belong among those village rascals made good.”
The Group therefore admonished Senator Uba that, rather than dancing to the tune of his distractors, he should ‘retain what remains of his self-respect, among the people of Anambra state.
“Our brother, retain what remains of your self-respect, and the love of your people. Do not lose them to the machinations of village touts made good, people who should not operate on the national stage…”
