The National Leader of Young Progressive Party (YPP), Senator Ifeanyi Ubah has called on his supporters to disregard the rumor of his defection to the All Progressives Congress (APC).
Senator Ubah who described the rumor as lies from the pit of hell said it was a plot by a frightened opposition who are trying to whittle down his popularity in Anambra State.
Ubag who spoke through the Head, Media and Stategic Communication, Mr Kemen Chuks Ognonna, said that he was resolute as YPP remains the vehicle for the people.
The statement reads in part: “My attention has been drawn to the news making the rounds that the Distinguished Senator Dr Patrick Ifeanyi Ubah, who is the National Leader of Young Progressives Party, has defected from YPP and pitched tent with All Progressives Party (APC
“I would have laughed this off for what it is , which is the usual pranks of a frightened opposition that is almost running out of fresh ideas, having tried several evil plots , propaganda and hatchet stories, all deliberately planted in the hope that it will reduce or whittle down the massive appeal that the Distingushed Senator currently commands in the State.
“Unfortunately we have received several calls from our friends, political allies and well wishers all trying to find out the veracity or otherwise of the story hence this rebuttal.
“I wish to categorically state, that the Distingushed Senator, Dr Ifeanyi Ubah is the National leader of Young Progressives Party (YPP) and has no intention whatsoever of leaving the party for any other platform .
“YPP is the next vehicle that Ndi Anambra has zeroed in on, and Senator Dr Ifeanyi Ubah is the driver of that incoming status quo change, poised to trigger the economic revival of Anambra.
“One may ask at this juncture, what can a Senator, who was denied the ticket of the ruling party in the state barely two months to a Senate election, but who took up a then little known YPP and still won the Senate election with a landslide, will be looking for in another platform?
“I call on our teeming supporters to disregard this latest attempt by an obviously frightened opposition to trigger confusion amongst our ranks by peddling false stories .
“The Senator’s pact with Ndi Anambra remains sacrosanct and unshakeable and the YPP remains the vehicle for this emancipation”.
