The senator-elect representing Anambra South, Senator Ifeanyi Ubah, has finally reacted to the report of his defection from the Young Peoples’s Party to the ruling All Progressives Congress.
Recall that Ifeanyi Ubah won the Anambra South senatorial district ticket on the platform of the Young People’s Party announced that he was dumping the party for the All Progressiives Congress (APC) on Monday.
The All Progressives Congress National Chairman had informed members and the APC senators who were gathered for a dinner with President Muhammadu Buahri that Ubah was now with the ruling party as he had was in attendance at the get together.
However, Ubah in a statement said he is just caucusing with the ruling party which offers him value than being a YPP Senator.
Ubah explained on why he attended the meeting with President Buhari and APC caucus, Ubah said he went to the meeting in order to seek solutions to the problems Igbo traders are having in Lagos.
The statement reads: “Yesterday I was in Lagos with the Leadership of the Senate and over 20 other senator-elect to brief the press. After the briefing, I was invited by our trader brothers from Tradefair Alaba to meet the senators over the tussles our brothers are having with BPE over their assets and the rumours of privatizing the market.
“Luckily, Senate Leader and by God’s grace the incoming Senate President was the chairman that resolved BBA issues in 2011 with BPE( bureau of public enterprise) and made the recommendations that they are enjoying till date and he promised to swing into action immediately to resolve their current issues again and we left Lagos to Abuja for a dinner with Mr. President and APC Senators and their caucus.
“In the dinner, the APC Chairman introduced me as a potential APC incoming Senator. This was his quote and his view of which he’s doing well in marketing me but I know my mission and has not changed from my last statement of last week.
“The most important thing is that I’m caucusing with the ruling party and presently has more value as a YPP senator.”
