Anambra South: Uba’s dynasty shattered, says Amachree, YPP chairman

National chairman of the Young People’s Party (YPP),  Emmanuel  Amachree, has expressed satisfaction over Tuesday judgment of the Court of Appeal in Enugu which upheld the victory of his party candidate in the last February national assembly election in Anambra south senatorial district, Senator Ifeanyi Ubah. The appellate court dismissed the petition filed by Chief Chris Uba of PDP and Senator Andy Uba. Speaking with newsmen in Abuja,  Amachree said the victory of Senator Ubah has shattered what he described as the dynasty of the Uba brothers in Anambra south.

He said:”Before now, people believe that the Uba brothers are the only people that could win election in the Anambra South senatorial district. The dynasty has been shattered. The Uba brothers are no where to be found. If they are very popular Ifeanyi Ubah wouldn’t have enjoyed the landslide victory with over 37, 000 votes ahead of them . How can you challenge such victory?  Their mentality of being the owner of the game has been demystified.

I thank my party for standing for me and giving me the necessary support.It was a contest and I know my input in the state. I believe it is a case of no Victor, No Vanquish.

I want them to join me so that we would collectively give value to our people. We are in politics to give value to our people. So, I’m extending my hands of fellowship to them.“My party is behind me and I’m going nowhere. It is going to be a wonderful thing for Nigeria. I have tasted other parties .
