A leading aspirant of the APC in the forthcoming Anambra governorship election, Senator Andy Uba, recently showed his soft side while on a campaign trail.
Uba, who has been touring local governments in the state, showed that the welfare of the people is much more important than politics.
NAIJ.com gathered that Senator Uba dinned with locals at a restaurant in Oye-Uga market square in Aguata local government area to the surprise of many.

While interacting with the locals and selling his candidacy to them, the senator sighted a physically challenged man struggling to move, he stood up from his chair and helped wheel the man to the car.
Despite his busy schedule, the senator is said to always make out time to be with his people, including youths and children.
The senator's actions have endeared him to his people, who describe him as epitomizing the true essence and respect for humanity.
Last week, Senator Uba decried the lack of development in Anambra state while speaking with ward chairmen and other APC stakeholders in the state.
He faulted the government of incumbent, Chief Willie Obiano, stating that it lacked direction, while assuring his audience that he was in the governorship race to bring about tangible developments to the state.
Senator Uba has since kick-started his sensitization tour to various local government areas in Anambra state.
