Ubah celebrates YPP’s victory in Anambra Federal Constituencies rerun elections

Sen. Ifeanyi Ubah, member representing Anambra South Senatorial District in the National Assembly, has expressed gratitude to the electorate for ensuring victory for the Young Progressives Party (YPP) in the Feb. 3 rerun elections in parts of the state.

Ubah made this commendation while reacting to the outcome of the rerun elections in Nnewi on Sunday.

Recall that in the rerun election for Nnewi North/Nnewi South/Ekwusigo, YPP candidate, Mr Peter Uzokwe, displaced Mr Uche Elodimuo of the All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA) to emerge the lawmaker representing the constituency.

In Orumba North/Orumba South Federal Constituency, YPP’s Chinwe Nnabuife defeated Mr Okwudili Ezenwankwo of the Peoples Democratic Party to retain her seat.

Ubah, who described the election as a foretaste of the 2025 governorship contest, said it was a show of how much people believed in his contributions to the development of Anambra as a private citizen and a Senator.

He said even though he was now a member of the All Progressives Congress (APC), he was able to help his former party, the YPP, to win two Federal Constituencies in an APGA-dominated state.

“I am delighted with the result of the rerun election in Anambra, it was  double victory for me but more importantly, it shows we are a force to reckon with.

“Winning election is not about deploying resources on election day, as a private citizen I have always been with my people, as a senator I am working for them, my impact is all over the place,” he said.

Ubah commended the security agencies for their roles in ensuring that the rerun election went peacefully.
