The Senator representing Anambra South Senatorial District on the platform of the All Progressives Congress, Andy Uba has assured his constituency that he stands a chance of becoming the next Senate President if reelected.
Uba stated this at a rally in Oko, Orumba North Local Government area of the state on Saturday.
He said through hard work, the APC had gained acceptability nation-wide.
“I have a better chance to become the Senate President, having been in the Senate for eight years and attained the status of a ranking senator,” he said.
Uba added, “President Buhari in 2015 was ready to make an Igbo man the Senate president, but he could not find a ranking Igbo senator from the area in the APC, then.
“We urge you to vote for President Buhari, and also for me as the senator of this district. Senate Presidency is a bigger position than even the governor of a state.
“So, if we get the Senate presidency, it will mean having something more than a governor in our district.”
The Senator who doubles as the Anambra State Chairman of President Muhamadu Buhari Campaign Council predicted a landslide victory for Buhari and the APC in the February 16 poll in the state.
He said, “In 2015, did you see this kind of crowd converge on any part of the state for APC? It did not happen. The people were aloof and not ready to listen to anyone then who would talk to them about the APC or Buhari, but today the story is different.
“Just look around and see the number of people who have converged here today. This is very significant. It did not just happen, it was through the efforts of some of us who joined the party. The people know us, and when we approach them and tell them that APC is the best place to be, they don’t argue about it.”
Uba who is contesting the Anambra South Senatorial seat for the third time said,” I don’t see what will stop us from winning Anambra State for Buhari and the APC.
He also expressed optimism that he would win the district’s election in the February 16 poll.
