THE All Progressives Grand Alliance on Sunday mocked the candidate of the All Progressives Congress in the November 6 poll, Senator Andy Uba, saying he was duped by defectors.
APGA said Uba should thank “his stars” for even winning his ward in the election.
National coordinator of APGA Media Warriors Forum, Chinedu Obigwe, stated this at a press conference in Awka, the Anambra State capital.

He said Uba’s decision to challenge the outcome of the poll in court would compound his woes.
Uba had after a stakeholders’ meeting in Awka, on Saturday, said he had discovered that besides having enough grounds to challenge the declaration of Prof Charles Soludo as governor-elect by the Independent National Electoral Commission, the entire election was not conducted in substantial compliance with the rules governing the exercise.
He said, “Investigations showed that there are sufficient grounds for me and the party to challenge the declaration of the APGA candidate, Soludo as winner of the election by INEC and that the ideal thing to do in the face of such discovery, is to approach the tribunal for redress.
“We will be heading to court with the discoveries we have, which shows that the declaration of Soludo as the governor-elect is faulty.
