- 50 members of the NPP in the Eastern Region have allegedly joined the NDC
- Allegedly led by two men, Asuo Peprah and Sam Tuga, they stated that the NPP has failed to develop their communities
- They added that most of the developmental projects in their area were provided by the NDC .
About 50 members of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) have reportedly switched camps to the National Democratic Congress (NDC).
Their decision, YEN.com.gh understands, is based on economic hardship and bad governance.
A number of the defectors claimed that they played various roles, including polling station agents while others were instrumental in grass root mobilization for the party.
The defectors, allegedly led by Asuo Peprah and Sam Tuga. set fire to 2016 campaign T-shirts of the sitting president , Nana Akufo-Addo, to signify their disappointment in his administration.
At short ceremony at Asamama to usher the defectors into NDC by the Eastern Regional Executives, Sam Tuga said they have never liked nor voted for NDC before because they are members of the NPP.
However, upon reflection, they have noted that the NPP is only using them and their communities as election winning machines and have failed to bring development to improve their living standards.
He added that most of the developmental projects in Atewa were provided by the NDC .
