Mr. Andy Uba has been declared winner of the APC primary election which was conducted at the Golden Tulip Hotel, Agulu Lake, Awka on Sunday. The poll was more or less a walkover for him as he rode to victory with total ease. He defeated more than ten other aspirants to clinch the ticket of the party.
Mr. Dapo Abiodun, who led the party electoral committee, said that Andy Uba scored more than 200,000 of the over three hundred thousand votes cast in the said election to emerge victorious. The Ogun State governor further explained that option A4 was used to pick the candidate of the APC for the Anambra State gubernatorial election.
With the victory recorded in the primary election, Mr. Andy Uba is a step forward in his concerted efforts to rule Anambra State. He was once the state governor, but he was removed following a court judgment that the said the tenure of Peter Obi was still running.
Now that he has won the party primary election, Andy Uba should visit Mr. Chris Ngige, the current minister of labour and productivity. Ngige remains the pillar of the APC in Anambra State and he can't be sidelined if the party wants to record success in the election.
Ngige himself will like to see the APC rule Anambra State. The All Progressives Congress has been struggling to endear itself to the Igbo people who dominate the southeastern part of the country. It will be a pride for Ngige to lead the party to victory in the November 6 election. Hence, Andy Uba should have a meeting with Ngige.
Outside Anambra State, Mr. Andy Uba should have a critical meeting with Mr. Dave Umahi, the Ebonyi State Governor. There are two things Uba will benefit from meeting Dave Umahi in Abakaliki, the Ebonyi State capital.
Meeting Dave Umahi is necessary because the governor is vast experienced when it comes to winning elections. He understands how a party is run because he himself had served as the chairman of the People's Democratic Party in Ebonyi State and he was once a deputy governor of the state.
Andy Uba can beg Dave Umahi to be the chairman of the APC campaign committee for the Anambra State election. Of course, Dave Umahi just joined the APC and he will want to prove himself as a worthwhile and strong politician that the APC can make use of. Hence, Andy Uba should have a meeting with Dave Umahi.
The third leader that he should meet is Bola Ahmed Tinubu. So persons may wonder why Tinubu should be involved in the Anambra State matters. The national leader of the APC knows how to convincingly win elections in the country. Once he is involved in any political matters, he will surely bring out success.
Tinubu was instrumental in the success of APC in far away Kano State. When it was clear that Umar Ganduje would lose the gubernatorial election, Mr. Tinubu came in and he saved the day for the APC by leading the party to victory and Ganduje was able to retain his seat.
