Abdullahi Umar Ganduje, the National Chairman of All Progressives Congress (APC), has hailed the defection of Senator Ifeanyi Ubah to the ruling party.
Ganduje described Ubah as the biggest fish he caught since he assumed the position as Chairman of the party.
Ganduje said this during the official presentation of the senator representing Anambra South by the Senate President, Godswill Akpabio, at the party’s National Secretariat in Abuja.
Addressing newsmen at the party secretariat, the APC Chairman described Ubah as a man who has enormous political clout in Anambra politics.
He said, “This is the biggest fish we caught since I became the chairman. Let’s see what is happening in the South-East. With five states, three are controlled by different political parties. We have the PDP, Labour Party and APGA.
“The remaining two are the APC states. Now, where is the sense of unity in a geopolitical zone with five states controlled by four political parties? Is this a sense of collective decision to participate in national politics? No.
“Now we have started seeing the answer. We will start a revolution. Already, we have two states in the South-East and with this timber and calibre and political juggernaut (Ubah), I think we have found the answer, an answer to liberating the South-East geopolitical zone.
“I describe him as a swing politician because wherever he is, that party wins. And we expect this swing will swing throughout the southeast, especially to the other three states.”
