All is set for Senator Ifeanyi Ubah’s defection to the All Progressives Congress (APC) from his party, the Young Progressive Party (YPP).
Ubah is a second term lawmaker on the platform of YPP.
A close source to the ebullient legislator told Top Trends Nigeria that the Anambra Federal lawmaker has concluded plans with his supporters and team to align forces with the APC.
Ubah has been embroiled in serious challenges with the assets of energy his firm, Capital Oil and Gas limited which have been taken over by the Asset Management Corporation of Nigeria (AMCON). The lawmaker has also been locked in legal battle to regain his assets and escape criminal charges.
Sources say that the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) has also been on his case for many years now.
Before coming to the Senate, Ubah was at the centre of Kerosene racketeering saga emanating from the now suspended petroleum products subsidy. The saga led to a plethora of economic sabotage accusations.
The lawmaker may declare on the floor of the Senate when it reconvenes after shelving plenary on Wednesday in honour of the Sokoto lawmaker in the House of Representatives that died on Tuesday night.
