2015:Chris Uba Sets To Take Over Senate Seat From Brother Andy Uba

TWO brothers,  Chief Chris Uba and Senator Andy Uba, are set to fight for the Anambra South seat.
Andy, the eldest, who represents the district at the National Assembly, is facing a stiff battle from Chris.
The brothers have pitched their tents with different camps of the state’s Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) after purchasing forms at the cost of N11 million each.
It was gathered yesterday that Chris, regarded as the godfather of Anambra State politics, has vowed to stop Andy.
Already, the youth, women, traders and businessmen are invading Chris’ residences in Enugu, Awka and Uga in Aguata Local Government Area to urge him on.
It was learnt that they were angry that since Andy went to the Senate, he had not made any meaningful contribution in the chamber.
They also alleged that he had done nothing for the people, except about two weeks ago, when he came with some vehicles and other equipment to empower a few people.
One of their relations, who spoke yesterday under anonymity, said since both declared their interests “they have not been seeing eye-to-eye.”
The source added: “Andy is our brother, likewise Chris. But the senator does not help anybody. Chris may have his deficiencies, but he carries everybody’s problem, fights for people and does not like suppression or oppression.
“Everybody is happy that Chris has come out to contest this election. He had been crowning people in Anambra State and one of the beneficiaries is his elder brother, Andy.”
Efforts made to speak with Senator Uba proved abortive as his phones were said to have been switched off.
But Chris said it was true that he purchased PDP senatorial form. He, however, denied being at war with his brother.
He said: “This is politics; everybody has his own interest. I think I have tried for so many people in this state. I want to go there and help the less-privileged in the seven local government areas in my zone.
“I have vowed not to touch my salaries at the National Assembly for the next four years.
“But my constituents will meet to decide the way they want to share it throughout my stay there. I want to go there to speak for the Ndigbo.”
