The Civil Society on Movement for Good Governance, Wednesday in Abuja, took a swipe on those alleging that Senator Andy Uba (Anambra South) was in­volved in school certificate forgery and described their action as uncalled for and a mere distraction.
The group in a statement signed by its Chairman, Dr Ajibade Sunday, stated that all the schools attended by the senator are listed in his official profile for investiga­tion and confirmation by any serious-minded Ni­gerian, adding,” It is based on this reason that the lawmaker has not joined is­sues with anybody over the baseless allegation.”
He added that more laughable was the fact that some political jobbers in Anambra State particularly within the Southern Sena­torial District threatened to recall Sen Uba from the Senate on alleged poor performance within the last two years forgetting that Uba as far as the 8th Senate is concerned, has sponsored the highest bills in the Senate as symbolised through the award given to him in November last year by the Senate Press Corps.
“To us in the Civil Societ­ies on Movement for Good Governance (CSMGG), all these moves by those that can be rightly categorised as political detractors of Sen Uba are nothing but mere futile efforts to get him distracted from his qualitative representation of the people of Anambra South in the Senate.
“It is also geared to­wards distracting him from offering himself to the en­tire people of the state as credible alternative for the governorship position of the state at the next guber­natorial poll.
“The earlier they realise that all their antics cannot stop a performer and high­ly focused strategic politi­cal player like Andy Uba, the better”, he said.-The Authority
