Dr Andy Uba has denied an Islamisation agenda in his aspiration as candidate of the All Progressives Congress, APC for the Anambra governorship election as he Monday, slammed Chief Dan Ulasi of obfuscation in seeking to revive the fortunes of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP in the state.
GreenWhiteGreen GWG reports that Uba spoke in response to a hard hitting interview on AIT in which the former PDP state chairman accused the candidacy of Senator Uba of having been built on fraud.
Uba in his reaction articulated by his campaign spokesman, Hon Afam Ogene rebuffed Ulasi’s claim of fraud in his emergence as APC governorship candidate saying the matter remained subjudice being a court matter.
He nevertheless observed that the PDP primaries was indeed more raucous “leading to the loss of one senator, three House of Representatives members and several gubernatorial aspirants of the party.”
Rebuffing the Islamisation agenda, Uba said:
“For a man who professed on the same set that he was born and raised in Kano, without any attempt by anyone to coerce him into becoming a Muslim, the recourse to inflammatory comments on the altar of politics is hardly an attribute that would be associated with an aspiring statesman.
“To properly situate the confusion swirling around him, the former PDP chairman had in answer to a question remarked thus:’Igbos must be at the centre. You must be in a party that has national representation, or a possibility of a national representation. That’s where you can fight. My interest(thus) would be: if Igbos are genuine in what they want to do, they either have to be in APC or PDP.’
“While we can pardon Chief Ulasi for the somersault, we harken to remind him, and his ilk, that today in Anambra, the APC is the true national political party, with one senator, five House of Representatives members and 10 members of the State House of Assembly – as against the PDP’s one senator, two House of Representatives members, and three state assembly members.
“We reiterate that at all times, elders should always strive to speak the truth, and not attempt to obsfucate same purely to achieve political goals.”
