Senator Andy Uba has described as ‘miscarriage of justice’ the High Court Judgment voiding his participation in Anambra gubernatorial election.
Andy Uba was the Candidate of the All Progressives Congress, APC in the November 6 governorship election in Anambra.
Earlier in the day, a federal high court in Abuja had declared the emergence of Andy Uba as APC candidate as illegal, hence cancellation of his candidature.
The presiding judge, justice Inyang Ekwo, had said the plaintiff, George Moghalu, was able to prove that APC primary election was a charade.
He said he would approach the appellate court to appeal the judgment of the high Court.
In a statement by The Deputy Director, Andy Uba campaign organisation, Mr Ikechukwu Onyia, Uba said the development will not deter him from challenging the victory of Professor Chukwuma Soludo, APGA candidate, at the polls.
According to the statement, APGA was doing everything possible to take him and the APC out of the tribunal, after knowing they have a bad case.
Onyia said: “The Senator Andy Uba Governorship Organisation(SAUGCO) will appeal the judgement of Justice Inyang Ekwo of the Federal High Court that nullified his nomination as the candidate of All Progressive Congress (APC) for November 6, Anambra governorship election.

Speaking on the actions of the ruling party in the state, All Progressives Grand Alliance, APGA, regarding the court pronouncements, Andy Uba said APGA turned itself to the mouthpiece of the court with a view to mocking and disparaging the APC because they APGA would be the direct beneficiaries of judgement.

”The APGA part in this script appears very glaring. Of course, they are aware that they have a bad case in the tribunal and are doing everything possible to take Andy Uba and APC out from the tribunal, but they will fail.
“We are not surprised that APGA members are celebrating Justice Ekwo’s judgement like a child that received Christmas clothe from his father. They believe that the judgement will stop Andy Uba from proving his petition at the tribunal. The good thing is that this is not the last court in this instant. We are heading to appeal court to prove them wrong.”
