Reports do indicate that about 200 members and die hard fans of the incumbent National Democratic Congress (NDC) in the Daboya-Mankarigu constituency of the Northern region have denounced their party to join the opposition New Patriotic Party.

The statement explained that "is intended to give the public an insight into the focus areas of the 2016 NDC Manifesto".

"The event, arranged as a prelude to the main launch of the Manifesto on Saturday September 17, in Sunyani in the Brong Ahafo Region will also be attended by representatives of International Organisations, the Diplomatic Corps, Business Associations and Youth Groups," the statement continued.

There have been some allegations by the New Patriotic Party concerning the manifesto of the incumbent NDC. According to some NPP stalwarts, the NDC was stealing NPP ideas to include in their manifesto.

President John Mahama has, however, made rubbish of the claims, maintaining that NDC ideas are original.
