Labour Party flag bearer on the forthcoming Governorship election in Anambra state has cartooned his colleague in All Progressive Congress (APC), Dr. Chris Ngige and Governor Babatunde Fashola of Lagos state alleging that the duo unanimously planned and executed the deportation for selfish reason.

According to the campaign fliers Ubah always distribute to his fans, Gov. Fashola earlier communicated Senator Ngige on his bids to repatriate Southeasterners and the later accepted it in order purposely to have his governorship ambition financed.

In the piece, Lagos state Governor told the Anambra's APC governorship candidate: " Ngige, your people must gooo!" and he replied: "I agree with you and will ever stand by you as long as my campaign is funded".

Also, the Labour party's propaganda sketched picture's of the Senator in his popular white attire and black beret and big tummy while Babatunde Fashola wore black trousers and a top ( light brown polo).

Similarly, Onitsha Direct Bus with women stepping out of it and protesting men bearing placards inscribed "We are not aliens, we are igbos from Anambra", "Ewooo, ndi-igbo igbo efuela. Even our own brother Ngige betrayed us becos of election money", appeared on the picture.

The Dr. Ifeanyi Ubah's fliers have gone far and near Anambra state as a result of his desire to emerge victorious on the November 16th governorship poll which is 11 days from now.

Analysts believed the election may not be free and fair due to the personalities on the race including the capital oil magnet, Dr. Ifeanyi Ubah of Labour Party; Dr. Chris Nwabueze Ngige Who is also the incumbent senator representing Anambra Central zone(All Progressive Congress -APC) and Dr. Willie Maduabuchi Obiano of All Progressive Grand Alliance (APGA).

Other top contenders are Mr. Godwin Chukwuneyne Ezeemo, a renowned Philanthropy and candidate of Progressive Peoples Alliance (PPA) and Comrade Tony Nwoye of Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) among 18 others jostling to wear the crown.
