A senatorial candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Anambra South Chris Uba has said his brother Andy Uba has overstayed at the Senate.

Chris said this on Friday in Awka the Anambra State capital where he noted that his brother who is going for a third term in the red chambers, should take a bow.

“My brother has been there for eight years and must take a bow now,” he said.

“I pray for my brother to go higher; he can become a governor or vice president but not a senator again.

“It is now my turn. I want him to throw in the towel because the fight is going to be very serious.”

He added that he wants to “run because we have been sponsoring politicians in Anambra State and across Nigeria.

“I have been doing that and a lot of people have passed through my school.

“But they call us godfathers, we have made case several times for the party to make some provisions in the party’s constitution to protect godfathers, but no way, no provision.

“The truth remains that godfathers are closer to the grassroots. A lot of people depend on us, a lot of families depend on us and many families today are hungry.

“But after sponsoring politicians, immediately they get to Abuja, you can’t get them on the telephone again, nobody will see them again, they buy all choice cars and the next thing they will blackmail you.

“Little thing, they will start fighting you, they will say they’ve known the President, they’ve known the party chairman and as a godfather, you are in trouble.

“So, now we need to occupy offices to protect our position and the positions of our people. That is why I am running for the Senate.”
