Senator Andrew Uchendu, an APC stalwart in Rivers State, said he has thrown in the towel against my elective position or office in the country.

Senator Uchendu disclosed these facts during the week, when he spoke with our correspondent at the Port Harcourt International Airport, Omagwa, on arrival from Abuja.

Speaking with our man at the airport, Senator Andrew said he has drowned the curtain against any elective position in politics in the country.

According to the party stalwart, who was answering question about his future ambition, said he had come to the conclusion to draw the curtain but would continue to serve in an elder statesman capacity.

“Yes for now, I will not contest any elective position or office in future but will mentor the young generation as an elder statesmen.

Senator Andrew Uchendu said he was calling it a quite for elective position because he has served enough in that capacity and want to remain as a statesman.

Answering further questions, the Senator said he was satisfied with the quality of services he has rendered to his people of Ikwerre ethnic nationality, the state called Rivers State and Nigeria in general.

 “Yes, I am satisfied and happy with the services I have rendered to this nation and my people right from the 1994 constitutional conference in this country”.

On the rejection of the nomination form by the former President, Dr. GoodLuck Jonathan, Senator Uchendu, called on Nigerians to learn to respect those that have served them meritoriously well.

The purchased form for the further President, he noted, was insulting.
