President Muhammadu Buhari Tuesday told Senator Andy Uba, the candidate of All Progressives Congress (APC) in the Anambra State governorship election that he was anxious to see him elected.

The election is scheduled to hold November 6 election.

President Buhari, who spoke at State House, Abuja while formally receiving Senator Uba, said: “I am happy to formally welcome you. I certainly wish you the best of luck. I’m anxious for your success, and will closely follow.”

The candidate was accompanied to the State House by the party’s caretaker committee chairman and Governor of Yobe State, Mai Mala Buni; Governors Gboyega Oyetola of Osun, Yahaya Bello of Kogi, Hope Uzodinma of Imo, who is also Chairman, Campaign Council, Babajide Sanwo-Olu of Lagos, Boss Mustapha, Secretary to the Government of the Federation, and George Akume, Minister for Special Duties and Intergovernmental Affairs.

Governor Buni said APC daily receives new entrants from Anambra State, citing the recent decamping of Senators Stella Oduah and Joy Emordi, adding that “Anambra is ripe for us, and we will work together for victory.”

Gov Uzodinma assured the president that the message of the party would be taken to the people of Anambra, “which will translate to victory for us in November.”

He also thanked the president for making the job easier, “because of the integrity and honour you have in Nigeria. Your name opens doors for us, and lots of people come into our party today because of it.”

“By the grace of God, we will be successful,” Gov Uzodinma said in a statement issued by presidential spokesman Femi Adesina.
