Anambra South senatorial candidate of the All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA), Prince Nicholas Ukachukwu in the forthcoming general elections says he would focus on sponsoring bills that would favour industrialisation and commerce in the senatorial zone if elected.
Ukachukwu who made the pledge at his ward, Osumenyi ward 2, while concluding his tour of the 119 wards in all 77 communities in the senatorial zone, added that he had already served as the first legislator of eastern extraction in the northern part of Nigeria and intended to use his experience to strike deals with senators of other parts of the country which would favour Anambra South and the South East in general.
Ukachukwu said that, as an individual, he had already made significant positive impact through infrastructural development and youth empowerment which he said are evidence that he has a heart for his people.
The APGA senatorial candidate, however, exonerated Dr Okey Chidolue, the plaintiff who filed the case against him which was recently upturned by the Abuja Division of the appeal court saying that he was only used by his opposition who are scared of losing the election to him.
Ukachukwu, while applauding the judiciary for “standing for justice” said that he held no grudges against Chidolue who he said was only used as cat’s paw by his opposers.
Recall that the Abuja Appeal Court presided by Justice Abdullahi Aboki,, last Thursday, said that Apo High court which had earlier invalidated the APGA Anambra South senatorial primaries, lacked the territorial jurisdiction to hear the matter and that the matter was filed out of time. It therefore upheld Ukachukwu’s candidature.
Ukachukwu said that he was not distracted by the earlier verdict but had continued reaching to Anambra South constituents to sensitise them on why he is the best candidate to represent them at the Federal House of Senate.
