Andy Ubah still in the Cold


Are you a good scriptwriter? If yes, you may be interested in knitting a story around the political life of SenatorAndy Ubah, and you can be assured it will make a huge box-office success.

Over the years, his perpetual failure to clinch the number one job in Anambra State has remained an intrigue to many political observers, particularly as he is regarded as a political heavyweight. But with his series of political losses, many now doubt if he is really a gladiator as thought, but a mere paper tiger.

In 2007,  Ubah, a former Special Assistant to former President Olusegun Obasanjo was literally dusted by former Governor  Peter Obi  when his victory to the Anambra Government House was upturned.  Not one to easily give up on his hope, Ubah has jumped from one political party to the other to realise his ambition, all to no avail.

It will be recalled that he left his former political party, the Peoples Democratic Party, for the ruling party, the All Progressives Congress, to participate in the November governorship election.

The billionaire suffered another humiliation of his life when he lost the APC ticket to a young man, Tony Nwoye. His defeat shocked his friends who have since warned him to desist from contesting political post.  Though they had advised him to drop the ambition, Ubah didn’t seem to be bothered.

With his recent humiliation,  he has become a laughing stock in the state, while this has finally confirmed that he is not a gladiator.
