President of Igbo Apex group, Ohanaeze Ndigbo in Anambra State, Emeka Udodeme, has endorsed APC Governorship candidate, Andy Ubah, for the November 6th gubernatorial election in Anambra.
This was made known in a statement released and signed by the Director of Media and Publicity of the APC candidate, Victor Ogene on Wednesday.
Udodeme explained that after carefully going through the manifestoes of the candidates vying for the position, the group has picked Sen. Andy Uba as the best adding that the governorship candidate of the All Progressive Congress (APC) in the forthcoming election, seems to be the most experienced candidate for the seat.
He said that out of the candidates of the three leading political parties for the polls, only Uba has tasted electoral victory and had garnered basic principles for governance in the capacity he seek votes.
“Uba may be soft spoken in nature but that does not take away the wisdom that God has endowed him with.
“I find in him a rich level of native intelligence and with his exposure to corridors of power over years shows he is a key to Anambra liberation, and the time is now,” he said.
The group President reiterated that he was thrilled during the presentation of his manifesto to the apex Igbo socio-cultural organisation, and praised the pan-Igbo disposition of the APC candidate.
He said that Uba’s manifesto attended to every request for intervention while he served in the Presidency.
Udodeme thereafter clarified that the group as a sociocultural group is not in the business of endorsing any candidate, but would not shy away from disclosing that Uba had assisted Ohanaeze Ndigbo whenever he was called upon to do so.
