Businessman Ifeanyi Ubah, senator who won the Anambra south election on the platform of a new party, Young Peoples Party (YPP), has dumped the party for the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC).
This is coming four days after he denied plans to dump the new party.
APC national chairman, Adams Oshiomhole announced Ubah’s membership of the ruling party at a meeting President Muhammadu Buhari had with APC senators-elect in Aso Rock on Monday night.
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.”
