30 members of the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) at Miremano community in the Jaman South Constituency in the Bono Region have defected to the ruling New Patriotic Party (NPP).
At the inauguration of the youth wing in the area, they said they are now part and parcel of the elephant fraternity and there is no way they will retreat to the vindictive and wicked party that drailed them so long in poverty and darkness.
The leader of the defectors Mr Moro said their decision to join NPP was informed by the massive development within three years of President Akufo-Addo’s government.
He said the ruling government had done far better than the NDC administration especially the numerous social Interventions like the free Senior High school (SHS), which gave children from poor backgrounds the opportunity to access secondary education.
The leader said the fragile economy inherited from the opposition NDC was reversed and now Ghanaians were reaping the benefits of good governance.
The defectors were introduced during the launch of the Youth Wing in the area as part of activities of the Bono Regional Secretariat led by Chairman Kwame Baffoe Abronye to kick start election 2020 campaign in the region.
