YPP National Chairman Responds to Defection of Party’s House of Assembly Members to Labour Party |  #NwokeukwuMascot

YPP National Chairman, Bishop Amachiri, has expressed his reaction to the defection of Abia House of Assembly Members to the ruling Labour Party in the state. Recall we have earlier reported the collapse of the Abia state Young Progressive Party (YPP) following the defection of Hon Iheanacho Nwogu and Hon Fyne Ahuama from their respective constituencies to the Labour Party.

The duo's expulsion from the YPP was a result of their open support for the administration of Governor Alex Otti, which was deemed as "Anti-Party Activities". The Speaker, Rt Hon Emmanuel Emeruwa, read out the correspondence conveying their expulsion during Plenary. Subsequently, both members sought refuge in the Labour Party, which was granted.

In response to the news of the defection, Bishop Amachiri expressed his surprise, stating that he had not been officially informed about it. He questioned why the House of Assembly Members would defect when there is no crisis within the party. However, Bishop Amachiri vowed to recover the mandate of the YPP if it is confirmed that the duo had indeed left the party.

His words: ” If indeed the story is confirmed to be true, i vow to recover the mandate of the party, but for now, let me still see it as rumour until there is an official correspondence”, he said.

During their explanations, Hon Iheanacho Nwogu, who is the Deputy Whip of the 8th Assembly, and Hon Fyne Ahuama pledged their unwavering support for the Alex Otti administration. They cited the Labour Party's foundation on the principles of justice and fair play as their reason for joining.

Mr. Chukwudi Jonah, a member of the Abia state YPP, clarified that there was no crisis within the party. He alleged that the purported suspension of the House of Assembly members was a ploy by them to use it as an excuse to defect to the Labour Party, as they had already planned their move months ago.

Efforts to reach the 2023 Governorship Candidate of YPP, Engr. Enyinnaya Nwafor, were unsuccessful at the time of filing this report. Stay tuned for more information on this developing story.
