Anambra Poll: Andy Uba to appeal court judgement on APC primary

Andy Uba

The All Progressives Party candidate in the Anambra governorship election, Andy Uba, is set to appeal the High Court Judgment on the party's primary, his campaign organisation has said.

WuzupNigeria reported that a Federal High Court in Abuja declared the emergence of Uba as the APC flagbearer illegal.

Justice Iyang Ekwo on Monday voided APC's primary election and Uba's participation in the November 6 governorship election.

Reacting after the ruling, the Senator Andy Uba Governorship Campaign Organization described the decision as a 'miscarriage of justice', adding that he will head to the appeal court.

The campaign organisation also pointed fingers at the ruling All Progressives Grand Alliance, according to the statement signed by Ikechukwu Emeka Onyia, Deputy Director Media and Publicity of SAUGCO.

"While we remain law-abiding in the face of the latest development, It is rather not surprising to many that the APGA members could turn themselves as the spokespersons of the Federal High Court with their tented report about the judgment and abuse of our party, APC with a view to blur and distort this grave miscarriage of justice because they(APGA) are to be the direct beneficiaries of judgement.

“The APGA part in this script appears very glaring. Of course, they are aware that they have a bad case in the tribunal and are doing everything possible to take Andy Uba and APC out from the tribunal, but they will fail.

"We are not surprised that APGA members are celebrating the Justice Ekwo judgement like a child that received Christmas clothe from his father. They believe that the judgement will stop Andy Uba from proving his petition at the tribunal. The good thing is that this is not the last court in this instant. We are heading to appeal court to prove them wrong."

"The Senator Andy Uba Governorship Campaign Organisation (SAUGCO) therefore urge APGA led government of ANAMBRA State to keep herself busy with challenges facing the state than investing on ‘Operation Stop Andy Uba’ dance," the statement said.
