Candidate of the All Progressive Congress (APC) in the just-concluded November 6, 2021 governorship election, Senator Andy Uba, has said that he and the APC will appeal the judgement of Justice Inyang Ekwo of the Federal High Court that nullified his nomination as the candidate of APC.

Nigerian Tribune learnt that Justice Ekwo earlier on Monday, December 20, 2021, ruled that Uba was never a validly elected candidate of the APC for the just concluded governorship election in the state.

The court ruled on the case brought about by aggrieved members of the All Progressive Congress (APC) in Anambra State over the supposed APC direct primary that was held in Anambra State against the November 6, 2021, gubernatorial election.

The court declared that Moughalu, the plaintiff was able to prove that there was no primary conducted in Anambra. It held that APC did not conduct a primary election and that Uba should stop parading himself as the APC gubernatorial candidate.

Reacting to the development in a statement signed and made available to Nigerian Tribune on Tuesday by Deputy Director of the Senator Andy Uba Governorship Organisation (SAUGCO), Ikechukwu Emeka Onyia, the group said while it remains law-abiding in the face of the latest development.

The statement said: “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 party, APC with a view to blur and distort 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 clothe 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.

“We, therefore, urge APGA-led government of Anambra State to keep herself busy with challenges facing the state than investing on ‘Operation Stop Andy Uba’ dance.”
