THE governorship candidate of All Progressives Congress APC, in the just concluded Anambra State election, Senator Andy Uba has recalled how he was removed as governor by the Supreme Court of Nigeria after 17 days in office, insisting that the current development about the 2021 election won’t hurt him.
Addressing APC members in Awka, Uba however said he had reviewed the outcome of the November 6, poll and resolved that there were enough grounds to challenge the declaration of Professor Chukwuma Soludo, the candidate of All Progressives Grand Alliance, APGA, as the winner of the election.
He expressed profound gratitude to members of the party, the campaign team and Anambra people, pointing out that though he never took politics or quest for political office as ‘a do or die’ venture, he would nonetheless always follow the dictates of the law in seeking redress
“We will, however, be heading to court with the discoveries we have, which show that the declaration of Soludo as the governor-elect is faulty.
“As governor, I was removed after 17 days of being sworn in by the Supreme Court of Nigeria and I did not die. So, the current development won’t hurt me. Power belongs to God and Him alone determines who he will entrust it to.
“Preliminary investigations showed that there were sufficient grounds for us and the party to challenge the declaration of the APGA candidate, Soludo as winner of the election by INEC and the ideal thing to do in the face of such discovery, is to approach the tribunal for redress”
