FORMER presidential adviser and the senator representing Anambra South senatorial zone in the country’s upper chamber, Dr. Andy Uba, has hinted of his desire to occupy the Government House of Anambra State which will become vacant in March, 2014 after Governor Peter Obi’s second tenure.
Uba was elected governor of the state in 2007, but had to vacate the office 17 days later, following Supreme Court’s ruling that Obi’s tenure had not eneded and that the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, ought not to have conducted the election.
Addressing the people of Aguata zone where he hails from at the weekend to thank them for voting him into the Senate during the rerun poll, Uba said though he was not revealing his political future, the people of Anambra State should know that the journey has just begun.
He said: “This is a journey that requires the cooperation of all and we have to put everything into prayers. If we get into Government House, just give us one year and this state will become a destination for investors because we will provide the right atmosphere here.”
The senator said his main reason for assembling them was to thank God for using them to return him to the Senate at a time hope was almost lost.
He told the people that if he did not win the election, the Old Aguata Union, OAU, in Anambra State would have finished politically as it would be difficult for anybody from the area to win future election in Anambra State.
