The group that if not properly investigated that the issue could cost the party the main election.

“While we understand that the issue of debt between a bank and its customer is ordinary civil, it is however disturbing that a candidate with an allegation of huge debt profiling running into billions of Naira will be allowed to vie for a gubernatorial ticket of APC in Anambra State.
“There is a likelihood that the proceeds of the said debt or money meant for repayment of debt is being used to finance Senator Andy Uba’s political campaign which is contrary to the extant monetary law of country, CBN regulation and the clear letter, spirit and intent of the 1999 constitution and Electoral Act.
“To whom much is given, much is expected, contrary perception can translate into reality if nothing is done about it.
