Senator Andy Emmanuel Uba representing Anambra South Senatorial District today (Thursday) urged members of the public, particularly the people of Anambra State to disregard insinuations that the verdict of the Supreme Court delivered today in the case of Ejike Oguebego and other Versus People’s Democratic Party (PDP) and other, affected his seat in the National Assembly.
Senator Uba in a statement from his office in Abuja said he was not a party to the suit just as his name or his seat was not mentioned at any stage of the suit which commenced in 2014 at the Federal High Court.
He added that the issue in contention in the case decided by the Supreme Court was on the chairmanship of the Anambra State chapter of the PDP and the constitution of its State Executive Committee.
He noted that the wrong and false interpretation being given to the verdict of the apex court was a calculated mischief planned by certain politicians in Anambra State who are simply interested in confusing issues.
“They are just raising a false alarm. National Assembly election matters do not get to the Supreme Court. The Court of Appeal is the terminal point. Also, there are no pre-election issue concerning my candidacy. Those who think they can get through the back door what our party members and the electorate did not give them are the ones giving this wrong interpretation to the verdicts delivered today.
“I have directed my lawyers to engage the Supreme Court so as to clear this mischievous information being peddled by some politicians”, Uba said,
