About 36 members and supporters of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) in Seketia in the Jaman North constituency of the Bono region have defected to the governing New Patriotic Party (NPP).
Speaking to the Media the members said, they are beneficiaries of numerous interventions of the NPP government which include health insurance, free SHS among other.
They attributed their firm decision of joining the party due to the unexpected and unprecedented achievements by the Member of Parliament in the constituency and H. E Nana Addo Dunkwa Akufo Addo in the District.
They added that, NDC only challenges good policies of the NPP but cannot provide some to seek the welfare of the youth hence, their defection to NPP.
They pledged to work hard to maintain the seat for the New Patriotic Party.
Meanwhile, the NPP chairman for Jaman North, Seidu Adams welcomed them the defected NDC members and said their defection will boost the chances of both Siaka Stevens, their MP and Nana Akuffo Addo.
He encouraged them to work hard to maintain the MP and the government.
