Ifeanyi Ubah defects from YPP to APC after winning senatorial seat

Ifeanyi Ubah, a senator-elect on the platform of Young Peoples Party (YPP) has defect from the party for the All Progressives Congress (APC).

Okay Nigeria recalls that Ubah denied dumping the party four days ago.

Ubah said at a press conference on Friday: “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.

However, Adams Oshiomhole, APC national chairman, announced Ubah’s membership at a meeting President Muhammadu Buhari had with APC senators-elect in Aso Rock on Monday night.

Governors present at the meeting with the president 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 (Osun).
