Senator Andy Uba said that he made Prof Charles Soludo Governor of Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN)
Senator Uba made this known during the Anambra gubernatorial debate on ARISE News Channel Supported by Enough-is-Enough.
Candidates who were present during the debate have already been cleared by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), including Mr Andy Uba of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Professor Chukwuma Soludo of the All Progressive Grand Alliance (APGA), and Mr Valentine Ozigbo of the People's Democratic Party (PDP).
This was not the first time Senator Uba has alluded such claims that he was instrumental to Prof Soludo’s emergence as the Governor of CBN during the administration of former President Olusegun Obasanjo tenure.
He made similar remarks in Lagos whilst briefing journalist last week.
In a reaction from Prof Soludo, he raised a gray area about secondary status.
“when did you graduate from secondary,” Soludo threw jab.
“I graduated in 1974,” Uba responded.
Recall that Ubah was recently taken to court over a school diploma that he reportedly provided for the election.
According to a suit filed in the Federal High Court, Abuja, on October 8, 2021, with the case number FHC/ABJ/CS/1211/2021, Uba's Form EC9 to INEC was full of incorrect information.
The statement of result for the Senior School Certificate Examination May/June 1974 apparently issued by Union Secondary School, Awkunanaw, Enugu, Enugu State, under the Enugu State School System and allegedly bearing the name of Uba Emmanuel Nnamdi with Candidate Number 05465/089 is fraudulent.
The WAEC did not hold exams in 1974, when Uba graduated from secondary school, according to the report Senior School Certificate Examination (SSCE).
In a rebuttal by Prof Soludo, "you cannot lie against someone who is alive.
He said, “I know Andy was a Masseur in the U.S.
“If throwing up my name gives Andy Uba a CV, then I will concede that to him.”
Uba in a reaction said, “When he (Soludo) became the CBN Governor, he came to my house to say thank you."
