As the race for Anambra State November governorship election intensifies, sources close to National Working Committee, NWC, of the All Progressives Congress, APC, have confirmed that the party has narrowed its preferred candidates for its primary election to Senator Andy Uba, Chief George Moghalu and Tony Nwoye.
The three, as it was gathered, were settled for based on their integrity, influence and antecedents.
However, feelers across the state and beyond hinted that Uba was most likely to emerge in the party primaries as his popularity and experience in politics and business circle places him far ahead of other aspirants.
They expressed the confidence that the versatile politician would surpass the achievements of past administration.
An Awka-based public affairs expert, Obinna Emmanuel, stated that it was only the senator who can give Governor Willie Obiano of the All Progressive Grand Alliance, APGA, a good fight in the election, adding that the senator’s supporters spread across the three senatorial districts.
Uba, who represents Anambra South at the Senate, has vowed to send the incumbent governor packing out of the Anambra prime seat, describing himself as the most qualified APC aspirant jostling for the ticket.
He said: “Anambra needs someone like me, who has the knowledge and understanding to turn things around.” I will use my influence to make life better for every Anambra person if given the chance to govern the state,” he said.
The senator pledged that his administration, if given the chance, will be all-inclusive, devoid of discrimination and marginalisation.
An APC and indigene of the state, Chief Osita Okechukwu described Uba as purposeful and investment-oriented.
He said the aspirant had done a lot for the people within and outside his constituency to convince the APC delegates that he is the right choice.
“I will advise other people to step down because Uba’s victory is sure. He is the only one that can lead Anambra to the Promised Land,” he said.
