Anambra state governorship aspirants, Charles Chukwuma Soludo, and Andy Uba threw shots at each other during the Anambra governorship election debate organised by Arise TV that aired Monday night, November 1.
During the debate, the All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA) candidate, Soludo, claimed the All Progressives Congress (APC) candidate, Andy Uba did not do anything meaningful for his people when he was a senator.
Responding, Uba said he ‘mentioned’ Soludo’s name as governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) to Obasanjo.
“You were saying that in my eight years in the senate I did not do anything. 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. I can show it to you from INEC.”
