I Dumped YPP To Give Igbos Sense Of Belonging In Nigeria — Ifeanyi Ubah

Must read

Senator Dr. Patrick Ifeanyi Ubah, the lawmaker representing Anambra South in the Senate, has given the reason why he dumped the Young Peoples Party—YPP and moved to the All Progressive Congress—APC.

According to the Anambra lawmaker, he joined APC so that the South-East region can benefit from the President Bola Tinubu’s government.

Ubah said this when he visited the APC National Chairman, Dr Abdullahi Ganduje, in the company of Senate President, Godswill Akpabio, at the party’s National Secretariat in Abuja on Thursday.

He was quoted by the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) as saying, “Our president is rewarding even those who didn’t vote for him, for that it will be very difficult for any man with a conscience not to look at the direction of the centre party.

“I don’t see anyone who will come against my coming into the APC,” he said.
Before defecting to the APC, Ubah said he talked extensively with his political family and key stakeholders in the South-East.

He continued, “It is not all about talking, it is about doing, I believe in action, Mr President just take it from me, I am going to deliver.

“I have made my complaints to President Tinubu in front of the Senate President and he has graciously given me his words that he will support me.


“I want to be sincere, it has always been difficult for the Igbo people to key into the national party because of our sentiments and emotions.

“Our president is a politician who understands how it pains and how to console everybody. He has that capacity,” he said.


Ganduje while receiving Ubah, said he was the biggest politician that had joined the party since he assumed office as the APC chairman.

“This is the biggest fish I have gotten,” Ganduje said.

He expressed optimism that with Ubah’s defection, the party would soon take over the South-East in the coming elections.
