The defection bug in Nigerian politics has caught up with Andy Uba, a Senator representing Anambra South Senatorial zone under the platform of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP. He has defected to the All Progressives Congress (APC).
Uba who disclosed this at a news briefing on Wednesday in his home country, Uga, Aguata Local Government Area of Anambra, said he joined the APC at the ongoing registration of party members in the state.
APC according to him, has ideology and focus which he needed to tap into to provide quality representation to his constituents. Uba added that he joined the APC because of other personalities in the party with sound ideas and whom he looked up to in politics.
He listed some of the personalities to include the Minister of Labour and Employment, Chris Ngige, and APC National Auditor, George Muoghalu, stressing that with such caliber of people, the party would take the state to enviable heights.
Uba said he would be very effective in serving the yearnings of his people more now that he is in APC and urged other Igbo politicians to join the bandwagon.
