Self-styled godfather of Anambra State politics and senatorial candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in this year’s general election, Chief Chris Uba, has said he has had enough being godfather and has come out to contest to rescue his people.
Uba is contesting to represent Anambra South senatorial district in the red chamber.
He said in his town hall meetings in Orumba North and Orumba South at Umunze and Ajali on Tuesday that there was nobody in Anambra State, including governors and legislators who have not passed through him since 1999.
He stated, “I came out to contest the seat in anger because those who had represented my people had failed in their duties by abandoning them. Enough is enough,”
He said those who he had sponsored were not more experienced than he in politics, telling members of his constituency that they would not regret voting him into the Senate.
Uba said if voted into power, he would work with any president, adding that he would leave indelible mark at the Senate.
“Fear not, I have the resources for this election, I have the brain, I have the connection and I have the capacity to become your senator.
“I’m ready for this fight and ready to give my constituents what they had lacked in many years and I’m ready to sign an agreement with Orumba North and Orumba South local government areas to show my seriousness in this election,” he asserted.
He said he would canvass for votes in all the seven local government areas that make up Anambra South senatorial zone, and that he had started with town hall meeting before the main rallies next week.
He advised them not to sell their voter cards so as to be able to usher in a new dawn.
