Andy Uba, Senator representing Anambra Central senatorial district in the hallowed chamber has denied rumour of his defection away from the All Progressives Congress (APC), to another party.
His defection speculation went rife following his defeat at the APC primary poll for the forthcoming Anambra gubernatorial election.
In a press statement put out by his media office, Senator Uba who emerged second with 931 votes at the just concluded APC primary election stated that the news that he had defected from the party was false and urged the public as well as the party members to disregard such news.
The statement said: “In putting the records straight let me state that Senator Uba has no intention of leaving our great party, the APC for another party. We will recall that Senator Uba at every point in time preceding the primaries said that he would not leave the party whatever the situation he found himself.
“Let us now ask why would he leave the party at this time? Again, what good will it do to him, his supporters or the party at this point?
“Senator Uba for now is yet to see reasons for his wanting to defect and so please people should stop spreading false news that he is planning to defect to another party as he is still a member of the APC.”
