Sen. Andy Uba dumps PDP, joins APC



The Peoples Democratic Party caucus in the Senate was further depleted on Tuesday when the lawmaker representing the Anambra-South senatorial district, Senator Andy Uba, officially announced his defection from the PDP to the All Progressives Congress.

Uba had written to the President of the Senate, Dr. Bukola Saraki, about his defection and the letter was read to lawmakers during the plenary.
The PDP caucus, however, said Uba would lose his seat in the chamber since the mandate belonged to the opposition party.

The Minority Leader, Senator Godswill Akpabio, while making the demand on behalf of the caucus under Order 43 of the Senate Standing Rules, also called for Uba’s removal as Chairman, Senate Committee on Public Accounts.

The committee, which is the only one recognised by the constitution, is traditionally occupied by the opposition.

Akpabio, therefore, urged the Senate President to sack Uba from the office within 24 hours.


He said, “That position belongs to the PDP and it (PDP) was the party that contested the election in Anambra. This is a notice of our intention to go to court to reclaim that seat. I just want to let you know that, automatically, since the party is not in dispute, his seat is in peril.”

The Niger Delta As A Microcosm Of Nigeria | Eugene Abels | TEDxPortHarcourt

Despite being abundant in human and natural resources, violence and decline in development prevail in the Niger Delta region of Nigeria. In this talk, Eugene Abels invites us to stop pointing fingers at governments, unite and reflect on our history and also, to change our thought patterns, attitudes and habits in order to create the community/nation we want.

A deliberate Change Agent and technocrat committed to international best practices who has in three decades traversed the Real, Banking and Public Sectors of the Nigerian Economy, Eugene Irefa Abels was born, bred and schooled in Port Harcourt, Rivers State, Nigeria. He hails from two oil producing Communities, Nembe and Finima and believes that they are a microcosm of the Niger Delta Region.

An exponent of the need to exorcise our Colonial past from the souls of our public servants and elected officials, he believes the art of governance has been reduced to the single person pronoun ‘I’ whereas ‘we the people’ holds no relevance.
