The Andy Uba faction of the Anambra State chapter of the All Progressives Congress (APC) finally held its Caucus meeting in Abuja passing a vote of confidence in Andy Uba.

Prime Business Africa learnt that the Chris Ngige faction’s could not hold as planned because the APC national leadership gave tacit support to the Andy Uba faction.

Both Senator Chris Ngige and Andy Uba had planned to hold separate Caucus meeting at 10 am in Abuja today (Friday) in what would have been a public show of the divisive tendencies within the ruling political party.

It would be recalled that Ngige, a federal Minister of Labour and Employment could not openly support Uba’s governorship quest in Anambra an he (Uba) lost in a distant third position on November 6, 2021.

All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA) won convincingly with its candidate Professor Chukwuma Soludo, while the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) candidate, Valentine Ozigbo, came second.

The APC caucus meeting, which was originally scheduled to begin at 10 am today (Friday), could not start until 5pm. As at 7.40 pm, the meeting was still ongoing. It finally ended at about 8.15pm.

In attendance were Senator Ikechukwu Obiora, Hon Lynda Ikpeazu, Chuma Nzeribe, Hon Ralph Okeke, former Minister John Emeka, Hon. Nsofor, among many others.
