Some members of the governing New Patriotic Party (NPP) in the Ketu North Constituency of the Volta Region who formally defected to the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) yesterday have explained that their abandoning the NPP for the NDC is due to the failure of the NPP to govern the country into prosperity as they had promised while in opposition.
The new NDC members expressed confidence in the ability of the NDC to turn things around for the better when it wins the 2024 General elections, pledging to work hard to help the NDC win come December 7, 2024.
A former NPP Youth Organizer of the Constituency, who spoke on behalf of the defected members, lamented the bad governance the NPP has brought upon the people of the country.
“Already, I have declared my total support for John Mahama and the NDC. We will campaign for them. And we will make sure that we win the presidential election, and we will form the Majority in the Parliamentary election. I was the polling station youth organiser, formerly polling station organiser. I was constituency youth organiser as well…So I’ve served this party for about 27 years now. Everybody knows me very well in the Volta Region here.”
He continued: “The leadership of the party in the region also knows me. They know how hard-working I am. This government is not ruling us well. So it is because of that I took this decision to join the NDC,” Bernard Akpabli Agbeli explained in an interview with Citi News.
Over 200 members of the NPP joined the NDC yesterday. The NDC has welcomed into their fold happily.
