Ubah, Stop Distracting Soludo- Anambra PDP Cautions

Sen Ifeanyi Ubah

The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Anambra State has accused the member representing Anambra South Senatorial Zone at the National Assembly, Senator Ifeanyi Ubah of All Progressives Congress (APC) of playing to the gallery, hitting up the polity and causing distractions to the governance of the state.

The party’s remarks followed Ubah’s recent outbursts against the state governor, Prof Charles Soludo, where he, among other things, expressed disappointment that the government of Soludo had not shown the capacity and capability to bring economic growth to Anambra State.

Ubah had also added that the general outcry in the state was that the APGA government had failed; hence he needed to succeed Charles Soludo of APGA to bring in a direction-driven leadership.

But, speaking to newsmen in Enugu, where he came for consultations with stakeholders of his party, the Anambra state Chairman of PDP, Chief Chigozie Igwe insisted that Ubah’s attacks on Soludo and statements suggesting his interest to replace him as governor was ill-timed and unwarranted.

Igwe said, “Ubah is only playing to the gallery and unnecessarily heating up the polity. Soludo is not yet up to two years in office and so his performance cannot be roundly assessed at this time. Although he is not doing well at the moment, he could make amends within the remaining years and perform better. It is when he fails to do better that one can begin to proffer alternatives.

“The opposition can only help the people to improve governance at early stages of the regime by providing platforms for constructive criticisms which will help a proactive government in self-evaluation. That is not what Ubah is currently doing.”

Going further, Igwe said, ‘Where did Ubah derive the power to declare himself candidate of APC when party primaries have not been conducted? He only joined the party a couple of weeks ago and immediately started conducting himself in a queer manner suggesting that he had the APC ticket in his pocket, neglecting many stakeholders who laboured over the years to sustain the party.

“His grandstanding is actually a big insult to major stakeholders of the party like Dr Andy Uba, a two time Senator, Dr Chris Ngige, an ex-governor, ex-Senator as well as former Federal Minister, Dr George Muoghalu, an ex-National Auditor of the Party including Chief Johnbosco Onunkwo and Chidozie Nwankwo among others.

“That is not how party politics is designed to work. A serious political party is not supposed to be personalised by an individual. It is inimical to the sustenance of democratic norms.”

Igwe also queried the basis for the Senator’s quest to be governor of Anambra state when according to him, Ubah’s performance at the upper chamber has been woeful.(Nation)
