Ahead Anambra State governorship election slated for November, Senator Andy Ubah, has donated 24 cars to the state chapter of the All Progressives Congress (APC) and boasted that nothing will stop him from wrestling power from incumbent Governor Willie Obiano.
Ubah, a former member of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), who represents Anambra South Senatorial District at the Senate, stated this on Friday at Uga, his hometown, when he handed the vehicles over to his new APC party.
According to Ubah, the cars should be distributed to the 21 APC local government chairmen in the state and the remaining three assigned to coordinators in the three senatorial districts of the state.
He went further to say he was going to also empower the 326 APC ward chairmen in the state in no distant time.
The aim of engaging in such venture, Ubah said was to ensure that the impact of the APC is felt in every nook and cranny of the state before the November 18 governorship election.
Ubah was once elected as governor of Anambra State but was later sacked following a court judgement that reinstated former Governor Peter Obi as the governor of the state.
Meanwhile, Ubah’s push to become the next governor of the state is coming at a period he is enmeshed in a West African Examination Council (WAEC) certificate scandal.
A report by an online porter claimed that Ubah who it said attended Union Secondary School (formerly Boys High School), Awkunanaw, a suburb of Enugu, has been parading a fake WAEC certificate result.
