The senator representing Anambra south, Ifeanyi Ubah, stated that approximately 80% of Igbo people accumulate their wealth due to the legacy of President Bola Tinubu in Lagos state. Ubah made this statement after officially joining the All Progressives Congress (APC) during an event in Abuja.
It should be noted that Senator Ubah had recently left the Young Progressives Party (YPP) due to irreconcilable differences, and his defection was announced during a plenary session by Senate President Godswill Akpabio.
During his reception into the APC by the National Chairman, Abdullahi Ganduje, and other party officials, Ubah praised Tinubu’s leadership qualities, expressing his belief that Tinubu is well-suited to govern Nigeria. He emphasized that Tinubu understands the challenges faced by Nigerians and possesses the ability to provide effective solutions.
Ubah also acknowledged the historical sentiment among Igbo people, making it challenging for them to align with a national party. He pointed out that a significant portion of Igbo people’s wealth is linked to the legacy that President Bola Tinubu has established in Lagos.
Furthermore, Ubah highlighted the significance of the appointment of Engr. Dave Umahi as the Minister of Works, despite the relatively low vote turnout for him in the southeast.
Senator Ubah’s decision to join the APC was driven by his desire to foster alignment between the southeast and Tinubu’s administration.
In response, Abdullahi Ganduje expressed his confidence that Senator Ubah’s defection would pave the way for the APC to gain influence in other southeastern states. He emphasized the potential for a political revolution in the region.
Ganduje described Ubah as a “swing politician” whose presence often leads to electoral success, and he anticipated that this swing effect would extend throughout the southeast, particularly in the three states that are not yet part of the APC.
