Dr Ifeanyi Ubah a senator who would be representing the people of Anambra south in the 9th Assembly has left his party, Young Peoples Party (YPP) for the All Progressive Congress (APC), MERIDIAN SPY can reliably report. 

The National Chairman of the APC Mr Adams Oshiomhole announced Uba’s defection from YPP to APC at a meeting President Muhammadu Buhari had with APC senators-elect in Aso Rock on Monday night.

This is coming barely four days after Dr Ubah denied plans to dump the party for any other party.

At a press conference on Friday, Ubah had said: “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.”

Governors present at the meeting were Akinwunmi Ambode (Lagos), Nasir el-Rufai (Kaduna), Yahaya Bello (Kogi), Simon Lalong (Plateau), Atiku Bagudu (Kebbi) and Abdulaziz Yari (Zamfara).

Others were Badaru Abubakar (Jigawa), Ibrahim Gaidam (Yobe), Kashim Shettina (Borno), and Gboyega Oyetala

Uba had defeated the famous Uba brothers; Andy Uba and Chris Uba of the APC and PDP respectively to clinch the Anmabra south senatorial seat in the  February 23 Presidential and National House of Assembly elections.
