Senator Ifeanyi Ubah Shuts Down Nnewi with Uzodimma, Ganduje and others for Mega Empowerment




Senator Patrick Ifeanyi Ubah CON has paid his dues politically. Even his detractors have realized that he is indeed a political figure who cannot be shoved aside with the wave of a hand. He is indeed a political force to be reckoned with in Anambra State politics. For him, taking a moribund Young Progressive Party YPP to relegate the top political party by going on to win the Anambra South Senatorial district in 2019 is indeed a political statement that will forever be referenced in the political space.

The seasoned businessman and Oil mogul has indeed wanted to serve his people in various capacities but he got the avenue and he is not taking any chances as one of his core mandates is to see Anambra rise to its true potential as the Lion of the South East region. In the last election, while campaigning and giving his score card; all his campaign promises within a short while he has fulfilled which makes him a voice that cannot be silenced. Despite several attempts to cut him short; he has continued to grow like wildfire. Despite several attacks which led to the ambush and death of his aides and police escorts, Ubah has refused to back down and has reiterated his commitment to making sure he achieves his goals even if it requires him dying for the cause of his people.

This we gather further secured the confidence of many people and backed his quest for a more secure Nnewi. He has invested a lot in security as he has, barked on a massive instalment of CCTV cameras within the Nnewi metropolis and has also empowered youths with vans, cars, motorcycles and other gadgets to ensure rapid response to emergencies. He is also working assiduously to stop the every Monday Sit-at-home order currently disrupting economic activities within the region.

Last year, when the news of his defection came it didn’t come as a shock to many as those in the know are aware that Ubah and President Bola Tinubu have had a long-standing relationship outside politics. Ubah shares in the political ideology of President Tinubu and his renewed hope agenda and instead of admiring from afar he decided to join the ruling party to further solidify his political base in Anambra to wrestle power from the incumbent Governor at the next election. Despite stiff opposition from some top political forces in Anambra to fursturate Ubah’, he has remained resilient and dogged in chasing his dreams with much gusto.
