Uba urges rivals to join hands with him
Winner of the All Progressives Congress (APC) governorship primary in Anambra State, Andy Uba, has urged his rivals in the election to join hands with him to work for APC victory in the November 6, 2021 election.
Uba, who spoke with journalists during a media briefing at his campaign office, said he has extended the olive branch to all aggrieved contestants even as he appreciated all the APC faithful for the confidence reposed in him.
He reminded party members that the road to fix Anambra State would not be an easy task, insisting that he was prepared to build a strong movement that would guarantee victory for APC in the polls.
The former representative of Anambra South Senatorial District reassured the people that he would run an all-inclusive government, stressing that there were a lot of things that needed to be fixed in the state.

He solicited the support of APC members and Anambra people across the senatorial zones to realise his quest to lead the state.
