Anambra Senator, Andy Uba, dumps PDP for APC

Andy Uba

Andy Uba, representing Anambra South Senatorial zone on the platform of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), has defected to the All Progressives Congress (APC).

Mr. Uba disclosed this at a news briefing on Wednesday in his home country, Uga, Aguata Local Government Area of the state.

The lawmaker said he joined the APC at the ongoing registration of party members in the state.

According to him, APC has ideology and focus which he needed to tap into to provide quality representation to his constituents.

Mr. Uba further said that he joined the APC because of other personalities in the party with sound ideas and whom he looked up to in politics.

He listed some of the personalities to include the Minister of Labour and Employment, Chris Ngige, and APC National Auditor, George Muoghalu.

Mr. Uba said that with such caliber of people, the party would take the state to enviable heights.

The senator said he would be very effective in serving the yearnings of his people more now that he was in APC and urged other Igbo politicians to join the bandwagon.

The registration of Mr.Uba had doused speculations of his defection to APC which had been on for many weeks in the state.

Mr. Uba is the fourth PDP senator to join the APC. His defection came two weeks after Nelson Effiong of Akwa Ibom made the same move.

Joshua Dariye, Plateau, and Yele Omogunwa, Ondo, had earlier defected from the PDP to the APC, also citing division in the opposition party.

The APC now has 65 Senators in the 109-member legislative chamber.

    What a stinking prostitute. A man who in saner environments should be in jail with his other criminal brother

    • Sanssouci

      A lot of people should be in jail that have not even been interrogated almost 2 years into a “war on corruption”….In Naija now very few things can still shock me

    • Powerlessconscious

      But you are still going to vote for PDP. IPad are political train of PDP. Any PDP crossing to APC is now their enemy. But when APC cross to PDP. He become their friend.

    • Say the truth

      By his crossing he is canonized a Saint. His sins are forgiven and he is declared free from EFCC’s drag net.

    • Okafor

      There should be by-election to test your popularity with the new party. Andy have they threatened you with invitation by the EFCC?

    Where are APC e-mob, now that the people you hate in PDP are now in APC, will you people still claim that PDP is the problem of Nigeria. Nigeria we hail thee

    • aboki

      Remember in politics there is no permanent friends but permanent interest.

      • share Idea

        And can you explain the permanent interest the APC e-mob have with APC?

        • aboki

          You may wish to ask the defector!

    • Powerlessconscious

      They are in APC under new ideology. Which is different from LOOTING of public funds but progressive development. If you are not ready to leave your sinful life, you can not join the train of God because God hates sin. Mind you, the PDP defector will not be in the control of the party. They will be under control.

      • Say the truth

        NEW ideology, really? The new ideology that made Saraki, Dogara, Lasun, to present their personal properties to claim rents and Jubrin (the self confessed thief). The list is long. New ideology my foot.

  • absam777

    APC is now the New PDP. Even devil has joined the party.

  • Ezeaguba Benedict

    I now understand, APC is not a new name of PDP. Its just that both are the two sides of the same coin-political power.

  • FuzzyLogic

    EFCC is getting dangerously too close for comfort. The man that is the last person to see Obasanjo before he went to sleep and the first to see him when he woke up as president, is nervous.

  • Say the truth

    More to come. APC is PDP, PDP is APC just a change of nomenclature. Professional politicians are normally AGIP. Besides Andy an OBJ boy and Uche Ekwunife are fair weather friends who will follow for what they are going to get only. This jumping of ship and name dropping is about the coming governorship election in Anambra. This guy is quite desperate and will do anything to get the seat. He has seen that the division in PDP is perfectly staged to kill that party. He figured that APC can easily re-enact another JIMOH IBRAHIM (the Judas) on any PDP candidate considered a threat. I won’t be surprised if he comes back ‘home’ if others stabilize the PDP ship and that is if. By the time Sheriff finishes his assignment Nigeria will definitely be a one party state.
