He said , “ I ’ ve a better chance to become the Senate President , having been in the senate for eight years and attained the status of a ranking senator . ”
“ President Buhari in 2015 was ready to make an Igbo man the Senate president , but he could not find a ranking Igbo senator from the area in the APC, then.
“ We urge you to vote for President Buhari , and also for me as the senator of this district . Senate Presidency is a bigger position than even the governor of a state.
“ So , if we get the Senate presidency, it will mean having something more than a governor in our district . ”
Uba who doubles as the Anambra State Chairman of President Muhamadu Buhari Campaign Council predicted a landslide victory for Buhari and the APC in the February 16 poll in the state.
He said , “ In 2015, did you see this kind of crowd converge on any part of the state for APC ? It did not happen . The people were aloof and not ready to listen to anyone then who would talk to them about the APC or Buhari , but today the story is different.
“Just look around and see the number of people who have converged here today. This is very significant . It did not just happen , it was through the efforts of some of us who joined the party. The people know us , and when we approach them and tell them that APC is the best place to be, they don’ t argue about it. ”
Uba who is contesting the Anambra South Senatorial seat for the third time said , ” I don’ t see what will stop us from winning Anambra State for Buhari and the APC.
He expressed optimism that he would win the district ’ s election in the February 16 poll.
