STATEMENT BY CHIEF CHRIS UBA OF ANAMBRA STATE
GUBERNATORIAL ELECTIONS IN ANAMBRA STATE IN FAVOR OF DR. CHRIS NGIGE
Anambra issue is being gradually revealed and denials and lies are being traded,
I believe that as one of the main activists in the whole issue, the moment of
truth and remorse has come.
First of all, let me express my heartfelt regret for my error and the activities
involved with others in Anambra to put Ngige in power as the governor of the
remorse, I sincerely ask for understanding and forgiveness of all our people in
Anambra state and those Nigerian leaders and citizens who have been affected and
insulted by the Anambra issue.
My mistake for
which I ask for understanding stemmed from my belief that election is like a
battle and since all is fair in war, I believe the end justifies the means in an
election. We did everything possible, to put Ngige in power. In the presence of
the President of Nigeria, Chief Olusegun Obasanjo, I asked Dr. Chris Ngige
whether he actually won the election, he confirmed he did not win the election.
The President drove us out. As from that point, he did not want to listen to our
occasion after that, I had the opportunity, when Chief Audu Ogbeh invited Dr.
Chris Ngige and myself to his house to tell the same story. Again Dr. Chris
Ngige confirmed before Chief Audu Ogbeh that he did not win the election, when I
asked him the same question. Because he was more attentive than the President, I
told him that even the certificate of return of the Governorship Election was in
my custody and at the appropriate time, I will make the copies available to the
press. Chief Audu Ogbeh advised that we should all keep quiet on the issue of
governorship election in Anambra. I obeyed.
As time goes on,
the truth will be more and more exposed and I can only hope that justice will
Once again, I
deeply regret my error and some of my actions in winning the election which in
the end have caused some people inconvenience.”
