By Ikeugonna Eleke

The candidate of the All Progressives Congress, APC, in last November’s Governorship Election in Anambra, Senator Andy Uba, has vowed to appeal the High Court Judgment nullifying his candidature.

Uba said he would continue to challenge the victory of Professor Chukwuma Soludo of the All Progressives Grand Alliance, APGA,

The Deputy Director of media in the Andy Uba Campaign Organisation, Mr Ikechukwu Onyia, who stated this in a press release, that APGA was doing everything possible to remove Uba and APC out of the tribunal because of the fact that they had a bad case. urged supporters of Uba to remain calm.

In the release made available to Fides, Onyia said, ‘The Senator Andy Uba Governorship Campaign Organisation (SAUGCO) will appeal the judgement of Justice Inyang Ekwo of the Federal High Court that nullified his nomination as the candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC) for the November 6, Anambra governorship election.

‘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 tainted report about the judgment and abuse of our the party, APC, with a view to blurring and distorting 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 clothes 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.’
