Nigerians have reacted to the decision of Ifeanyi Ubah, the Anambra South Senator-elect on the platform of the Young Peoples Party (YPP) to decamp to the All Progressives Congress (APC).
The National Chairman of the APC, Adams Oshiomhole, had announced during the party’s National Working Committee (NWC) meeting with House of Representatives members-elect on the platform of the APC that Ubah was currently with the ruling party.
He had said, “YPP Senator-elect from Anambra South has decided to pitch tent with the ruling party in light of the fact that he felt progressively alright with the triumphant group.”
Oshiomhole, nonetheless, added that other issues identified with Ubah’s defection would be perfected on a later date.
Meanwhile, Nigerians took to social media to air their thoughts on Ubah’s defection as follows:
@hon_ceejay: “Do you know that Anambra man that contested and won under the platform of YPP for Senate? I mean the oil mogul, IFEANYI UBAH. He has joined the ‘winning team’
Nigerian Politics abi politics in Nigeria is a bastard. You will see, he will be the next Deputy Senate President .”
@beedemi: “Did Ifeanyi Ubah just use and dump YPP? Are political parties only platforms to contest elections. Where is the ideology? Many questions.”
@julietkego; “My constituency had a great opportunity to have BIANCA ONOH as our Senator. She’s a lawyer, had proven her leadership skills as an ambassador to Spain, spoke out and rallied youth to vote during the height of IPOB boycott notice in Anambra Guber elections. We got Ubah instead.”
@Ikenna_____: “If Ifeanyi Ubah joined PDP, It would have been a wise decision, abi? These Nigerian youths truly deserve the looters. They always vote for!”
@iykimo: “I hereby commend Ifeanyi Ubah for dumping Third Force YPP for APC. APC crumbled Ifeanyi’s businesses. If you can’t beat them, join them. The joke is on the people that voted him as a third force candidate.
@Sidac06: “Ifeanyi Ubah is getting his politics right. My only fear is I hope his people will not turn against him now that he is aligning with the APC. Aligning with the mainstream is the best way to go.”
@UNCLE_AJALA: ‘Ifeanyi Ubah from PDP to APC, to Labour party to APGA, to YPP & now to APC. You see why trusting these politicians, fighting for them, making enemies because of them is stupid right?. They’re not loyal to anyone than themselves, anywhere belle face people, no integrity, no class.”
