An online news portal known as Capital.ng has retracted its published false story, that said the former senator who represented Anambra South in 7th and 8th Senate, and the  All Progressives Congress (APC) frontline governorship aspirant for the forthcoming guber election in  Anambra state, Senator Emmanuel Nnamdi Uba, (MFR), popularly known as Andy Uba, had a closed door/secret marriage with Hon. Nnenna Elendu Ukeje of Abia state, who represented Bende Federal Constituency for 12years.

The online portal had not only published the said fictitious marriage but also drew inferences on possible dilemma on who would be Uba’s first lady if he wins the election from three women it alleged to be in Uba’s life, and one of them, Nnenna Ukeje.

Andy Uba Campaign Council (AUCC), had refuted the fake news and described it as smear campaign, considering the absence of fact in the false news and asked for retraction, also threatened legal action if the story is not retracted within 72hours.

 

In retraction, The Capital.ng  wrote: “Our attention has been drawn to a factual inconsistency in our last story that Hon. Nnenna Ukeje is now married to Senator Andy Uba, a hot contender for the forthcoming gubernatorial election in Anambra State.

“We have since been informed that the said article is totally false. We sincerely apologise to Hon. Nnenna Ukeje and Senator Andy Uba, their family and friends for the inconveniences the said article has caused them and we hereby retract the article in its entirety. There was no intention whatsoever to malign or disparage them.
” Errors highly regretted”.
