ANAMBRA YOUTHS AND ELDERS STORM NATIONAL ASSEMBLY IN SOLIDARITY AND DEMAND AN END TO THE SPONSORED BLACKMAIL AGAINST SENATOR DR. EMMANUEL ANDY UBA
A of group young and old alike, including women from Anambra State and the southern senatorial district today staged a peaceful demonstration at the National Assembly Complex to express their distaste for the recent protest by some unscrupulous elements posing as Anambra youths which was aimed at blackmailing one of their amiable representative in the person of Senator Dr. Emmanuel Andy Uba, they termed the recent deliberate campaign of calumny against the Senator as evil and a campaign that is aimed at smearing the image of their performing Senator.
They trooped out in their numbers bearing different placards with messages to express their dissatisfaction, and in solidarity for Senator Dr. Emmanuel Andy Uba.
Speaking with Comrade Engr. Chidi Orji, who led the group of Anambrarians to the National Assembly, he said that their sole mission was to speak against the incessant hiring of hoodlums to protest against Senator Andy Uba, to spread falsehood that the Distinguished Senator had no School Certificate.
We are proud that Andy Uba is representing us, his certificates are there with INEC, at the Code of Conduct Bureau and also where he attended his Secondary School in Awkunanaw High School Enugu. The WAEC (West Africa Examination Council)’s head office is in Abuja and anyone who wishes to verify his credentials can go there, for confirmation rather than engage in false propaganda.
Engr. Orji further stated that:
The proud people of Anambra State want Sen. Dr. Emmanuel Andy Uba to come and salvage the people in the forth coming governorship election, we know vividly well that it is those who wants to contest the governorship election with him are behind the blackmail, but we will not relent.
