More setback for YPP in Anambra as top chieftain defects to APGA after Ubah’s move to APC

The Young Progressives Party (YPP) in Anambra State is encountering a significant setback as indications emerge of the imminent departure of Dr. Chinedu Umeadi, the party’s Senatorial candidate for the Central District in the 2023 general elections.

His anticipated move to the All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA) signals further erosion of the YPP’s influence in the state’s political landscape.

The development comes on the heels of Senator Ifeanyi Ubah’s switch from YPP to the All Progressives Congress (APC).

Dr Umeadi’s anticipated defection to APGA signifies a critical blow to the YPP, with reports suggesting that many of its members have already deserted the party, seeking affiliations elsewhere.

Meanwhile, despite the YPP’s minority representation in the state Assembly, its members have refrained from joining Sen. Ubah in the APC or leaving the party en masse.

Confirming his intentions to join APG, Umeadi, during a visit to him by the state Chairman of APGA Chief Ifeatu Obiokoye, at his county home in Abagana Njikoka local government area said that after due consultations with his team, it would certainly be expedient to join Governor Charles Soludo in ensuring the Anambra state remain a liveable and prosperous Homeland.

Speaking during the meeting, Chief Obi-Okoye, who was accompanied by the State Youth leader, Dr Tochukwu Obiadi, said that his purpose for the visitation was in consonance with the directive principles of the state leadership of APGA, to reach out to like minds with a genuine interest of achieving agenda of Governor Soludo.

Responding, Chief Umeadi commended the state chairman of APGA for his for-trite approach and positive disposition towards increasing and broadening the cost of APGA to accommodate all shades of interest.

He noted that under Governor Charles Soludo, Anambra State has suddenly become a vast construction site, building and developing sectors hitherto neglected by previous administrations.
