Anambra South Senator-elect Ifeanyi Ubah has dismissed rumours that he is plotting to dump the Young Progressives Party (YPP) for the All Progressives Congress (APC).

Naija News recalls that the senator-elect had attended a “caucus” meeting of APC senators with President Muhammadu Buhari.

Speaking to newsmen, Ifeanyi Ubah said caucusing, horse trading and lobbying” were normal in legislative practice seeing that he had the approval of his party to do so.

“As for APC, no, I did not join APC, I was only caucusing with them and caucusing is normal in politics all over the world,” he said.

“In America, Joe Lieberman is an Independent candidate that caucuses with the Democrats, Benny Sanders is another test case in America.

“So, there is nothing that says I should go to Senate and stand alone and wait for people to come and give me food because I went there on the ticket of YPP.

“I need to mingle with people I can share ideas with and see how I can be of value to my constituency, that is why I am caucusing with the APC and I have the backing of my party.”
