Revealed: See Why Andy Uba Cannot Challenge Soludo In Court


Recall that the governorship election of Anambra state took place on the 6th day of November, 2021 and the winner vof the election was declared. It was the former governor of Central Bank of Nigeria Charles Soludo that won the election under the platform of the All Progressives Alliance, APGA.

Many people across Anambra state congratulated Charles Soludo but one of the opposition party, Andy Uba of the All Progressives Congress, APC rejected the election and has promised vto challenge the result in court.

However, Anambra State government on Tuesday, said that Senator Andy Uba who came a distant third in the November 6 governorship election in the state has not moral justification to approach election petition tribunal on the outcome of the poll because he was never a candidate of the All Progressives Congress, APC.

A number of Anambra people, including people from his hometown of Uga in Aguata local government area, have been advising the Senator against carrying out his threat of going to the tribunal so as to build on the existing culture of social harmony which the state had created since 2017 when the candidates of the major parties congratulated Governor Willie Obiano on his reelection and the need to maintain judicial integrity.

Uba had threatened to drag the winner of the election, Professor Charles Soludo to the election petition tribunal, citing irregularities in the conduct of the election.

However, the state Commissioner for Information and Public Enlightenment, Mr. C Don Adinuba said in a statement that Anambra people need not worry about Uba’ s threat as he is alone.

He said: ” Much as the concerns of the people are legitimate and much as it is acknowledged that Uba can ordinarily sue in a democracy if he is genuinely dissatisfied with the process or outcome of an electoral exercise, Anambra people need not worry about any likely antics by the former senator.

” He has no locus standi to approach the election petitions tribunal as he was never the APC candidate in the November 6 election.

Uba himself knows this to be the fact in his heart, hence he instructed his lawyer, Abubakar Magaji Mahmud (SAN), to do everything within his power to stop Mr. Justice Inyang Eden Ekwo of the Federal High Court in Abuja from delivering judgment on November 4, 2021, on a case brought by Chief George Moghalu, Managing Director of the National Inland Waterways Authority, and a founding APC member who sought the party’ s ticket to contest in the governorship election. Chief Moghalu is suing the party for forwarding Uba’ s name to the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) as its nominee in the election.
