This significant decision was communicated through a formal letter addressed to the President of the Senate, Godswill Akpabio. The letter was subsequently read aloud in the Senate Chamber during the proceedings on Thursday.
Senator Ubah, who had been serving his second term as a YPP member following his re-election, cited irreconcilable disagreements within the YPP as the primary motivation behind his party switch. This move signals a notable shift in the political landscape, as Senator Ubah aligns himself with the APC, one of Nigeria's major political parties.
Ubah said, “I am willing to formally notify and inform the Distinguished Senate President and our colleagues of irreconcilable differences between me and the leadership of my party.
“I, therefore, resolved to move from the Young Progressive Party (YPP) to the most important party in Africa, the All Progressives Congress.
“After careful considerations and due consultations, the members of my community, my constituents, and critical stakeholders of Anambra State.”
Ubah noted, “After a thorough evaluation of the political landscape in Nigeria particularly, the good works being done by the All Progressives Congress since the emergence of Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu as the president of Nigeria.
“I have come to realization and conclusion that the All Progressives Congress is better suited to champion the ideals and principles that are known.
Ubah added that the APC’s commitment to good governance, economic development, and social progress resonates deeply with his conviction and the alignment of each member on key national issues making a choice for achieving the promises of any decent politician and particularly the promises that he made to my constituents to better the lots of all of them.
