Senator representing Anambra South senatorial district, Andy Uba, has accused Victor Uwajeh of spreading falsehood against him.
The senator who warned Uwajeh to desist from maligning his name, however dismissed the allegation that he is after the life of Uwajeh.
Uwajeh, had about two weeks ago alleged that Sen Uba is after his life because he alleged that the senator forged his academic certificate.
But the senator, through his aide, Chief Chike Okeke, in a statement made available to LEADERSHIP, described Uwajeh’s allegation as unfounded adding that they are false and misleading.
”We want to state in categorical terms that these allegations are unfounded, false, misleading; and refuted and denied by Senator Emmanuel Andy Uba.
“Contrary to Mr. Victor Osita Uwajeh’s villifying claim, he was never at any time or event engaged by Senator Emmanuel Andy Uba to deal with anybody or government agency in U.K and US on his behalf.
The Distinguished Senator and family are seriously embarrassed and outraged at these false and injurious publications against his academic qualifications”, Okeke said.
He said his boss observed that Uwajeh first came out with the allegation of fake West African Examination Council (WAEC) certificate after the senator declared intention to contest the last governorship election in Anambra State.
”However, it has become necessary to rebut these bunch of falsehood and confront Mr. Victor Osita Uwajeh by all civil and lawful means. For purposes af rebuttal and clarifying these allegations, Senator Emmanuel Andy Uba was a Special Assistant to former President Olusegun Obasanjo between 1999 to 2007.
“He was also a former governor of Anambra state. He is presently serving as a two time Senator representing Anambra South Senatorial District.
“For the avoidance of doubt, in all of Senator Emmanuel Andy Uba’s private and political career, he has consistently used the WAEC Certificate obtained from Union Secondary School, Awkunanaw, Enugu in 1974 with Examination No: 05465/089; his degree certificate from California State University, Los Angeles for the award of Bachelor of Arts in Geography and Urban Analysis and his certificate of honourary Doctorate degree in Public administration from Nnamdi University, Awka”, he said.
