Weeks after he won the Anambra South Senatorial seat in the February 23rd National Assembly election, oil magnate, Ifeanyi Ubah, has dumped the Young Peoples Party YPP, and has now defected to the ruling All Progressives Congress APC.
APC Natonal Chairman, Adams Oshiomhole, announced Ubah’s defection to their party at a meeting President Buhari had with APC senators-elect in Aso Rock on Monday March 25th.
“I am not yet ready to defect from the YPP. I am still in the YPP. In party business, you can’t determine what would happen next. Sometimes you wake up and you will start seeing one problem or the other. For me today, I am in the YPP and I hope to remain in the party.
“The YPP is bringing a revolution of change to Nigeria. I must join a progressive group in the Senate since I cannot be alone. The YPP is the party to beat in this country. I won my election without the party having an office in any part of Anambra State.” he said
