C/R: Dozens of NPP members defect to NDC over hardship

Over 50 Youth from the New Patriotic Party (NPP) in the Cape Coast South Constituency in the Central Region have crossed carpet to the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC).

The group said their decision was hinged on the passage of Electronic Levy (E-Levy) bill by the Akufo-Addo led government.

The defected youth who are known NPP members in the Ekon Electoral Area in the Cape Coast South Constituency said
they least expected that the Akufo-Addo government to mismanage the country as it is doing now and have regretted campaigning and voting for the NPP.

Speaking during the Launching of Ekon National Youth Wing in the Cape Coast South Constituency, the leader of the Youth who defeated, Stephen Quacoo an Educationalist, said he personally joined the NDC because of the hardship Ghanaians are going through.

“We are very disappointed in the Government for passing the Electronic Levy bill upon all the concerns raised by a large section of Ghanaians,” Quacoo noted.

He continued that his group is poised to campaign massively for the NDC to wrestle power in 2024.

Welcoming them to the NDC during the weekend,  the Member of Parliament for Cape Coast South, Mr Ricket Kweku Hegan thanked them and asked the party to work with them.

He acknowledged the economic hardship Ghanaians are going through and urged them to campaign for the NDC to win the 2024 general elections to enable the party implement policies and roll out programs which will improve the living conditions of Ghanaians.
