PPP regional and constituency leadership, members defect to NDC

Several hundreds of members of the Progressive People’s Party (PPP) from various parts of Bono, Bono East an Ahafo regions have defected to the largest opposition party in Ghana, the National Democratic Congress (NDC).

“Today, the regional Chairman, the regional executives, constituency executives and fearless party members do declare our solemn defection from the Peoples Progressive Party (P.P.P) and declare our unwavering support for the National Democratic Congress (NDC) and we pledge to abide by all the rules and regulations of the party and high the flag of the NDC in our struggle to build a better and prosperous Ghana so help us God.”

“The NPP will even agree with itself that this level of deterioration and rot has been unprecedented. Corruption, nepotism, insensitive leadership, clueless economic management, excessive borrowing and wanton wastage of limited state resources and pilferage of state cash has been the hallmark of this current administration”, Lucious Sanfaa, the Bono Regional Chairman of PPP, on behalf of the defectors, said in Sunyani last Sunday at a programme to officially announce their defection.

It was a well-attended ceremony witnessed by the Chairman of the NDC, Johnson Asiedu-Nketia, the Bono Regional NDC Chairman, Kwadwo Nyamekye-Marfo and several other executives and high-ranking members of the NDC.

Retrogression

According to Mr. Lucious Sanfaa, the decision to cross carpet is also because of the “unbearable economic challenges, democratization of corruption among NPP appointees and the brazen oppression and suppression of free speech.”

Mr. Sanfaa stated that the various sectors of the country’s economy have witnessed some retrogression “including the heightened educational crisis, poor healthcare system and non-functional National Health Insurance Policy, collapsed agriculture which has led to the shortage of food and for that matter high food prices.”

He was of the view that their defection to the NDC will give meaning to the sacrifices of the forefathers of the country, adding that Ghana would not be left to rot in the hands of a few self-seeking individuals who only came to steal, kill and destroy.

“Our dream is to take over the political mantle from the NPP by breaking the chains of political and state captivity to free the masses.

“Owing to the foregoing, the people of the Progressive People Party in Bono region have decided to partner with the biggest opposition party, the National Democratic Congress to achieve this mission.

“The ideological disposition of the party and its expression of same in deeds is an inspiration to the young generation of politically conscious youth and for that matter holds the torch for progressive action moving forward. The NDC have shown great levels of selflessness, respect for human dignity, social, cultural and ethnic inclusion, solidarity and sensitivity to the plights of the vulnerable”, Mr. Lucious Sanfaa further said.

The Chairman of the NDC, Johnson Asiedu-Nketia, on behalf of the party officially received and welcomed the defectors into the NDC and encouraged them to work hard to ensure a massive electoral victory in next year’s general elections.
