Sen. Ifeanyi Ubah (YPP-Anambra) has attributed his decision to dump his party for the ruling All Progressives Congress, APC to the different actions President Bola Tinubu has taken so far since he assumed office.

Ubah spoke wh when he visited the APC National Chairman, Dr Abdullahi Ganduje after he announced his defection to APC during Senate Plenary at the party’s National Secretariat in Abuja on Thursday.

The Anambra Senator who was accompanied on the visit by Senate President Godswill Akpabio added that he also decided to join the ruling party because he wants the South-East to align with the Central Government of President Bola Tinubu.

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.

“Our president is rewarding even those who didn’t vote for him, for that it will be very difficult for any man with conscience not to look at the direction of the centre party.

“I don’t see anyone who will come against my coming into the APC,” he said.

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

“It is not all about talking, it is about doing, I believe in action, Mr President just take it from me, I am going to deliver.

“I have made my complaints to President Tinubu in front of the Senate President and he has graciously given me his words that he will support me.

“I want to be sincere, it has always been difficult for the Igbo people to key into the national party because of our sentiments and emotions.

“Our president is a politician that understands how it pains and how to console everybody. He has that capacity,” he said.

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

Ganduje while receiving Ubah, said he was the biggest politicians that had joined the party since he assumed office as the APC chairman.

“This is the biggest fish I have gotten,” Ganduje said.

He expressed optimism that with Ubah’s defection, the party would soon takeover the South-East in the coming elections.

“We will start a revolution, already we have two states in South East and with this timber and calibre, juggernaut, I think we have found the answer.

“We thank you for coming. I describe him as a swing politician because wherever he is that party wins.

“And we expecting this swing will swing through out South-East, especially to the other three states that don’t belong to APC,” Ganduje said.
