Senator-elect, Dr. Patrick Ifeanyi Ubah, has braced himself ahead of the 9th Senate having been part of the orientation programme organised for elected members of the National Assembly.
The Capital Oil boss was among the ‘BATCH A’ members who took part of the exercise aimed at acquainting newly elected legislators as well as furnishing them with expected roles and responsibilities.
The program also prepare lawmakers on the basics of parliamentary practices, procedures and serves as a refresher course for returning members.
“Having completed the scheduled programme, I was presented with my Certificate of Participation alongside other Distinguished Members-Elect,” the Chairman FC Ifeanyi Ubah Football Club said.
“The major policy thrust of my senatorial ambition is hinged on the Economic recovery of the Igbo nation and building upon the foundation already laid by our founding fathers to strengthen the weak pillars and fill the cracks in the process.
“My vision is to also entrench the virtues of transparency and accountability in parliamentary politics and build a structure where the legislative arm and the people will in turn enter a new era of probity, understanding and cooperation.
“I am counting on my constituents, family, friends and numerous well-wishers for prayers, ideas and moral support as we gallantly embark on this journey to steer Anambra South and the Igbo nation at large to the shores of the Promised Land.
Ubah who ran under the platform of the Young Progressive Party (YPP), polled 87,081 votes beating his closest rival, Mr. Chris Uba of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and his younger brother the incumbent Senator for the area, Sen. Andy Uba who both polled 52,462 and 13,245 respectively.
