I Left YPP To Ensure South East Benefits From Current Administration, Senator Ubah Says

Sen. Ifeanyi Ubah (YPP-Anambra) says he decided to defect to the All Progressives Congress (APC) because he wanted to ensure that the South-East benefits from the Central Government of President Bola Tinubu.

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 appreciated the party’s leadership for accepting him into its fold.

Ubah commended President Tinubu for appointing Mr Dave Umahi as the Minister of Works, in spite of the party recording low votes in the South-East at the 2023 presidential election.

Ubah added that he consulted widely with his political family and critical stakeholders in the South-East before defecting to the APC.

Ubah yesterday announced his defection from the YPP to APC through a letter read by Senate President Godswill Akpabio during a brief plenary session. Ubah in the letter says his defection was due to irreconcilable differences in the YPP.
