The chairman of National Human Rights Commission, NHRC, has reacted to defection of Senator Andy Uba to the All Progressives Congress(APC) duringTuesday’s plenary.
It will be recalled that Dr Chris Ngige fell out with his political godfathers, Andy Uba and Chris Uba, while he was the governor of Anambra State.
The brothers allegedly made him sign all sorts of papers in addition to dragging him to Ulasi Shrine in Okija to take some oath of covenant.
When Ngige refused to do all their bidding due to the poor state of finance in the state, the Uba brothers kidnapped the governor and swore in his deputy.
All these were done with full support of then the President Olusegun Obasanjo, who told the embattled governor, who told him to go reconcile with the Chris and Andy Uba.
“We know how you became governor” Obasanjo said (Insider Weekly, Issue No 52, December 29, 2013″
