The All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA) has disqualified businessman-turned-politician, Ifeanyi Ubah, from contesting for the Anambra South senatorial ticket.

This came few days after a voice recording of the State Governor, Chief Willie Obiano, assuring Ubah of a senatorial ticket on the platform of the party, if he could stop working from the sideline and help to deliver the governor for the second term, was released to the general public.

Ubah’s disqualification was contained in a document signed by the APGA National Chairman, Chief Victor Oye, who said that Ubah was disqualified from running because he failed to get a waiver.

The document titled “Outcome of the National Screening of APGA in Anambra State” showed that while other candidates were cleared, Ifeanyi Ubah was disqualified.

Meanwhile, a member of the Board of Trustees of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Chief Chris Uba, defeated two other aspirants to emerge the party’s candidate for Anambra South senatorial zone.

He polled 931 votes to emerge winner against Chief Chuma Nzeribe, who scored no vote and Dr. Obinna Uzor at a distant second with twenty votes.

Uba’s brother, Andy Uba, a two-time serving Senator currently representing the zone at the Senate under the umbrella of All Progressive Congress (APC), also sailed through the primaries.
