Senator Andy Uba, candidate of the All Progressive Congress (APC) for the November 6 Anambra governorship election has vowed to appeal the court judgment which nullified his participation in the exercise.
Justice Inyang Ekwo of a federal high court sitting in Abuja nullified Uba’s participation on grounds of emerging from an illegally conducted primary election by the APC.
Ekwo held that the plaintiff, George Moghalu, succeeded in proving that the APC did not conduct a valid primary election from which Uba claimed to have emerged as the party’s candidate.
Uba who reacted to the court judgment accused the All Progressive Grand Alliance of being the beneficiaries of what he describes as “miscarriage of justice”. He also claimed that APGA played a role in the court judgement.
The former lawmaker said in a statement;
“While we remain law-abiding in the face of the latest development, it is rather not surprising to many that the All Progressive Grand Alliance, APGA, members could turn themselves as the spokespersons of the Federal High Court with their tented report about the judgement and abuse of our the party, APC with a view to blur and distort this grave miscarriage of justice because they (APGA) are to be the direct beneficiaries of the 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.”
