The candidate of the All Progressives Grand Alliance in the Anambra State November poll, Chukwuma Soludo, has mocked his All Progressives Congress counterpart, Senator Andy Uba, over his inability to kick off his governorship election campaign.

Soludo, in a statement by the director of media of his campaign organization, C-Don Adinuba, said the delay for Uba’s campaign inauguration was because he was afraid of meeting the people of the state to answer questions about his past actions.

Uba had twice rescheduled the inauguration of his campaign, citing the insecurity in the state. On another occasion, he suspended it in honour of Dr Chike Akunyili, husband of former information minister, Prof Dora Akunyili, who was killed alongside eight others at Nkpor, near Onitsha.
