Uba had emerged as the flagbearer for the All Progressive Congress (APC) in the recently conducted primaries.

Receiving him at the State House, Abuja, on Tuesday, the president said he will monitor the election closely.

He said; “I’m happy to formally welcome you. I certainly wish you the best of luck.

“I’m anxious for your success, and will closely follow.”

Speaking to reporters at the end of the meeting, Uba said: “I was surprised at the endorsement of Mr President and what he said to me today came from his heart. You know everybody was shocked at what he said.”


In respect of the tension between him and two of his brothers, Chris and Ugochukwu, who will also be contesting, Uba said; “I will tell you for sure that we are not divided. At the end, everybody will see that we are not divided.

“We’re going to win Anambra state. APC will win Anambra state under me.”
