ANAMBRA 2021 FOR PROGRESSIVES: SENATOR ANDY UBA IS GOOD AND THE BEST
By, Onyekachi Adaoba Okafor.
Andy Uba

Yes ! Senator Emmanuel Nnamdi Uba ( Andy Uba ) is not only good, but the best option for a progressive Anambra.

Here is talking about a man, man enough to lead Ndi Anambra ( people of Anambra ) to the progressive light.

Why Andy Uba ?
Andy Uba is a Nigerian. Andy Uba is experienced. Andy Uba has contributed to national and state development. Most importantly, he has served and still serving humanity.
Therefore, Andy Uba is not just qualified, but eminently qualified to sail the progressive boat for Anambra state, this 2021.

 

Progressives do not concern themselves with primordial sentiments, but consider reality and humanity in taking a moral stance.
Progressives set goals and achieve goals.
Andy Uba is not just a progressive by party. Andy Uba is a progressive by person, records and achievements.
Andy Uba is experienced too.

 

Andy Uba, the true son of Uga in Aguata Local Government Area (LGA) of Anambra state has garnered many years of working experience in Finance and Health services.
He has also served in different capacities.

 

He has presented and projected Anambra in good light.

From the history of Senator Andy Uba’s life, one obvious constant is the fact that he is a goal-oriented man of character.  For instance, his zeal and dedication to the people of Nigeria in Diaspora earned him the recommendation of the Chief Olusegun Obasanjo who invited him to serve in Nigeria having noticed his deep sense of loyalty, beliefs, and originality. Subsequently, he was appointed Special Assistant to the President on Special Duties and Domestic Affairs.

In 2007, Andy Uba contested for and actually was declared winner of a gubernatorial election in Anambra State of Nigeria. However, a challenge of the election in court by Peter Obi had the entire process truncated, as the court held that there was no vacancy in the Anambra State Government House to warrant the election in the first place.

In April 2011, Andy Uba contested for and won election as PDP candidate for Anambra South Senatorial district, winning same seat again in 2015.

 

He has served as Senate committee chairman on Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) and Public Accounts and served as chairman Senate Committee on Interior.

He promoted four prison reform bills which aimed at the reforming the Nigeria’s Prisons service in order to reflect modern realities and accommodate present day needs.

In June 2017, the Senator, in one of his outings in the Senate, moved a motion against the increasing rate of dropped calls and other unwholesome practices by telecommunication network operators in Nigeria that have robbed Nigerians of their hard earned billions, and as a result of that motion, the Senate asked the Nigerian Communications Commission (NCC), to immediately invoke the appropriate provisions of the law and other extant agreements to protect consumers.

The Senate also sought ways for customers to get refund for disrupted calls caused by network issues and also allow them have more control over their usage of data bundles as practised by telecom operators in countries like Kenya (Safaricom), South Africa and others.

Senate also urged the NCC, the Consumer Protection Council (CPC), Standards Organisation of Nigeria (SON) and other regulatory agencies to carry out effective supervision of telecoms service providers to ensure regulatory excellence; operational efficiency and sterling service delivery.

Ndigbo in general will always remember one of the motions he moved in the Senate, that sought  for the commencement of immediate action on the Second Niger Bridge;

Ndi Anambra will always remember the motion for national recognition of the deaths of Dim Chukwuemeka Odumegwu Ojukwu and High-Chief Edwin Umezeoke.

 

He has consistently put smiles on the faces of Anambra people through his scholarship programmes to students. Many unemployed youths are now into the tricycle  business which Dr. Andy Uba facilitated by giving them motorcycles and tricycles free of charge. Equally, many widows can now smile because Senator Andy Uba granted them loan to start up businesses.
Hospitals and orphanages cannot forget in a hurry how Senator Uba’s infrastructural assistance made them more efficient in the discharge of their duties to humanity.

 

Nze Philip Uba Endowment Building for Mass Communication, named after his late father at Nnamdi Azikiwe University, Awka; the building of multipurpose hall for the people of Uga and his numerous donations stand to be remembered.

Andy Uba has done much for Nigeria and Anambra state, and has more for Ndi Anambra.
