A member of the National Assembly, Senator Ifeanyi Ubah, has emerged the candidate of the Young Progressives Party (YPP) in the November 6, 2021, governorship election in Anambra State.
Ubah, who is the senator representing Anambra South Senatorial District, emerged the party’s governorship candidate yesterday in Abuja with a pledge to defeat whoever emerged the candidate of the All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA).
He recalled that he defeated candidates of the People’s Democratic Party and the APGA in the last national Assembly election in his senatorial district.
He said: “We gave them a hot chase in the Senate and I am going to defeat them again.”
The YPP’s candidate absolved his party of the crises rocking the APGA and PDP chapters in the state.
“If other parties are having crisis, it means their processes are not right. As you can see in the YPP we are moving with the speed of light.
“We are unique in the YPP and Anambra will see a new ray of hope. We are expecting a smooth election and are ready to take over the governorship seat in Anambra,” he said.
Ubah believed that forthcoming governorship election in his state would not be truncated despite the violence in certain states in the South-east that was instigated by hoodlums bent on burning facilities of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC).
He said: “Election is a constitutional process that must be met and the election will be conducted without chaos. The YPP has the blessing of God and we meant well for Anambra.”
