A support group of the governorship candidate of the All Progressive Congress (APC) in Anambra state, Sen. Andy Uba, I stand with Andy Uba, has warned against any form of insults on the personality of Governor Dapo Abiodun of Ogun State.
A group of APC chieftains under the aegis of the All Progressives Media Team had called on the party leadership to sanction Sen. Andy Uba and Ogun state Governor Dapo Abiodun over their roles in the recently conducted governorship primary of the party, describing the exercise as a charade.
The group, through its spokesperson,
Hon. Jude Oruola insisted there was no primary election in the state, adding that the party was still waiting for the electoral committee to carry out its assignment for the party.
It regretted that Abiodun’s action was a disregard to the leader of the party, Sen. Chris Ngige, and other long committed members of our party in the state.
But the Director General of I stand with Andy Uba, Onyekachi Adaoba Okafor dismissed the group as fake, saying it was not recognized by the party both at the state and national levels.
She insisted that any further insult on the Ogun state governor would no longer be tolerated.
She said, “First and foremost there is nothing like all Progressive Media group both in the state, and that of the national leadership of the party who don’t know who they are and the agenda they are working for.
“Also, there is no time all aspirants made a notice that all their media aides should align together to form the so-called progressive media group. If it was so, why were the media aides to senator Andy Uba not inclusive to the so called group?
“We write to enlighten the general public that the so-called alignment was done out of envy for senator Andy Uba. Why was the so-called group formed after the primaries? If it was genuine, why wasn’t it formed months before d primaries?
“We will not tolerate any form of insult on the personality of Gov Abiodun of Ogun State. Enough is enough. “
