A group of 50 “serial callers” of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) in the Greater Accra region has defected to the opposition New Patriotic Party (NPP), it has been reported.
The activists used to call into radio and television programmes and say positive things about the government.
But they have now quit to join the NPP, the Daily Guide reported on Tuesday.
They cited what they called the poor state of the economy as the reason for joining the NPP.
The leader of the group, Bugri Mohammed Akayere, said he had witnessed the collapse of many businesses, including his own meat business.
“In the past I slaughtered up to 35 livestock made up of cattle, sheep and goats but today I can hardly sell the five I kill,” he said.
He said the group had reached the conclusion that the NPP stood a better chance of transforming the economy for the benefit of all Ghanaians.
