During the Anambra governorship election debate hosted by Arise TV on Monday night, November 1, aspirants Charles Chukwuma Soludo and Andy Uba fired shots at one other.
During the discussion, Soludo, the candidate of the All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA), alleged that Andy Uba, the candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC), done nothing substantial for his people while he was a senator.
Uba responded by saying he’mentioned’ Soludo’s name to Obasanjo as governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN).
You were implying that I did nothing in my eight years in the Senate.
What did you do? I mentioned you as the central bank governor. What have
you done so far?” the APC candidate asked.“You haven’t done anything. They
brought you to me.
My brother brought you. How can you say what you don’t know?”Responding to Uba’s comment on the CBN job, Soludo said the APC candidate was not instrumental to his emergence as CBN governor, adding that Uba was a “domestic staff” in the presidential villa.
“I know Andy was a masseur in the US.
He was a domestic staff in the villa, who cleans the president’s shoes,” he said. “If throwing up my name gives Andy Uba a CV, then I will concede that too.
Soludo also alleged that the APC candidate forged his senior secondary school certificate which was presented to the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC).“You don’t have a certificate. You forged it. I will show you here.
Do you have a secondary school certificate?” Soludo queried.“When did you graduate? You have a secondary certificate in 1974? You had SSCE in Enugu? It is a forgery! Your history is here.
