ANAMBRA ELECTION: Why We Are Supporting Ifeanyi Ubah – Hausa Community


Hausa community in Anambra South district, Anambra State, has reiterated their resolve to support Senator Patrick Ifeanyi Ubah in the forthcoming governorship election in the state.

Secretary General of Hausa community in Anambra South Senatorial District, Sali Suleiman, gave the assurance during a rally in Nnewi, organized by the senator to thank his senatorial district for their support towards achieving his senatorial bid, and to inform them of his intention to join the November 6 governorship election in the state.

Suleiman described Senator Ubah as “a detribalized Nigerian, who does not see the difference among Hausa, Igbo Yoruba and other tribes in Nigeria,” adding that “Ubah sees all Nigerians as a people, who must co-exist in peace and unity.”

“Even before his election into the senate, he had been doing a lot of things that benefited Hausa people and other Nigerians resident in Anambra South. He dug boreholes and provided transformers at different Hausa quarters, and other residential areas in Anambra South with the intention of ensuring regular power and water supplies. While at the senate, he had been extending employment and empowerment opportunities to our people in this senatorial zone.

“As governor of Anambra State, it is our belief that he would come up with programmes that would benefit all Nigerians resident in Anambra. We are sure that 25,000 population of Hausa people in this senatorial district will be a great boost to his governorship bid,” concluded Sali Suleiman.

Speaking, Senator Ubah informed the gathering that he had joined the governorship race under the platform of the Young Progressive Party, YPP.

“My decision to contest under the aegis of the YPP is that the party has Igbo agenda and interest. Everything about the YPP is Igbo. This is a continuation of my aspiration that started in 2014, when I contested under the platform of the Labour Party, LP, but lost to the All Progressives Grand Alliance, APGA. If we succeeded under this platform, we shall have achieved a milestone towards enthroning Igbo interest in our dear state; and I will continue on my stride to provide better life for Anambra people,” he said.

Earlier, chairman of YPP in Anambra State, Prince Moses Obi, assured the people that YPP would provide good governance in the state if voted into power.
