The candidate of the Young Progressive Party, YPP in the Saturday’s National Assembly elections, Dr. Patrick Ifeanyi Ubah, has emerged winner of Anambra South Senatorial seat.
Dr. Ubah who polled 87,081 votes defeated the candidates of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, All Progressive Congress, APC, All Progressive Grand Alliance, APGA, Chiefs Chris Ubah, Andy Ubah and Nicholas Ukachukwu, who polled 52,462, 13,245 and 51,269 votes, respectively.
Speaking to Newsmen shortly after the results were announced at the secretariat of Nnewi North Local government, by Professor M.N Umenweke of the Faculty of Law, Nnamdi Azikiwe University, Senator Ubah dedicated his victory to the people of the senatorial zone as he pledged his best for the task ahead.
Ubah left APGA for YPP after the leaders of the party disqualified him for the primary election of the party to pave way for the wife of the late leader of the party, Amb Bianca Ojukwu, who also showed interest in the seat.
Ubah also made history by contesting on a relatively unknown party to sack an incumbent senator, Andy Uba of APC who also doubled as the state chairman of President Buhari campaign council in Anambra.
