The senator representing Anambra South Senatorial zone, Andy Uba, on Tuesday reacted to the call by a group known as the Dynamic Youth Organization of Nigeria (DYON) for his recall from the Senate chamber describing the group as a faceless, organisation.

Speaking through a statement titled, “Purported Recall of Sen. Dr. Andy Uba” and signed by his media aid, Uchem Obi Esq in Awka, the Senator accused the group of lacking knowledge of legislative functions adding that as legislators, their duty is to make laws and not to build roads.

It would be recalled that last week, DYON briefed journalists in Awka, where they berated Uba.

They accused the Senator of not representing the zone well adding that they were working towards his recall from the Senate.

In his reply to the group, Uba denied knowledge of moves to recall him from the Senate, as he had not been confronted with any allegation of wrong doing.  

The statement reads: “The process of recall is a serious democratic check on failed representatives of the people and not a weapon in the hands of desperate sycophants who are not motivated by moral or ethical values, but by the monetary compensation of those who hired them.

“By exhibiting a total lack of knowledge of the function of the Senate and the activities of Senators, the organisation has exposed itself as ignorant, unserious and visionless.

“How did they become ignorant of the fact of Sen. Andy Uba’s record as the Senator with the highest numbers of Bills in the Senate?

“How did they become ignorant that Sen. Andy Uba was easily re-elected from the 7th Senate to the 8th Senate by proud and satisfied constituents of Anambra South Senatorial Zone? Why did they not know, that by that re-election Sen. Uba set an unprecedented record as the first and only Senator from Anambra State to have contested and won a second tenure in the Senate?”

The statement further reads: “They were ignorant of these facts because the organisation is not credible and it’s so called members are the usual faces in every election in Anambra State, who sell cock and bull stories to foolish politicians for fees.

“The organisation, their paymasters and ignorant members of the public should be educated that Senators are not elected into the Senate to construct roads or to provide electricity and water.

“These are the constitutional responsibilities of the Executive arm of government. Any citizen, corporate or individual, who has issues with the non-provision of these amenities, should direct their anger and frustration to either the President of the Federal Republic or Governors of their states and not to Senators, who are strictly elected to make laws.”
