Dr. Patrick Ifeanyi Ubah Chairman and Chief Executive of Capital Oil and an aspirant for Anambra–South senatorial seat in the 2019 general elections has said that he will remain in the All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA) even if he lost in the forthcoming APGA primary elections.
Ubah who was reacting to Senator Stella Oduah’s defection to the Peoples Democratic party (PDP), told journalists on Monday that Oduah’s decision to leave APGA was totally uncalled for.
He said whichever way the pendulum swings at the primaries, he will not defect from APGA, stressing that he was back home and APGA remained the only political party with Igbo interest and ideology.
The oil and gas magnate posited that from all indications, he was the best qualified to fill the vacancy for Anambra–South senatorial district noting that the senatorial district required one with pedigree, impeccable character and reach in terms of capacity as Anambra-south was important to Anambra state.
The renowned philanthropist and benefactor of the downtrodden in the society expressed confidence that he has an edge over his co-contestants in the Anambra-south senatorial race saying that he has done what humanity can attest to especially as it concerns better life for all and sundry.
The business mogul said he loves the people of Anambra-south and has equally demonstrated it in practicality through genuine philanthropy and other human interest ventures pointing out that the senatorial district needs the likes of him for people-oriented representation at the national assembly.
Furthermore, Ubah disclosed that he has gone for APGA screening but according to him, the committee has the final judgement even though he exhibited a lot of confidence that he would scale through the screening process and await the primary elections where he hopes to obtain the party’s ticket.
