Over 1000 members of Progressive People’s Party (PPP) in the Upper West Region have crossed carpet to join the National Democratic Congress(NDC) on the 4th of July 2022.
The defected members involved the entire membership of the PPP in the 11 constituencies of Upper West Region.
They announced their decision at a welcome ceremony held by the NDC at the assembly hall of Wa Technical Institute.
According to them, they have thrown their support for the largest opposition party to rescue the country from the hardship imposed on Ghanaians by the ruling New Patriotic Party(NPP).
Speaking at the gathering, spokesperson for the defected members, Adams Yaaga Ganiu explained among other reasons that the NDC has developed the country more than any other party while touting the NDC for being the champions of democracy and principles of accountability.
The former secretary of the PPP urged all PPP members across the country to join in full support for the NDC to assume power to salvage the country.
“I would use this opportunity to inform all Ghanaians that banks have been collapsed, market women cannot even be granted loans, insecurity everywhere.” he stated
Addressing the 1000 defectors, general secretary of the NDC, Johnson Asiedu Nketia called on all progressive parties to unite and focus on the interest of Ghana
He explained the need to forget about names, slogans and personalities and work with principles and and policies.
Asiedu Nketia indicated that the NDC is the hope if all parties should believe in the principles of unity and national development and equal opportunities for all.
He accused the NPP of collapsing the PPP and the GN Bank both established by Dr Paa Kwesi Ndoum.
He therefore urged Dr Ndoum to declare that the PPP believed in social democracy and for which reason they must all follow the example of the PPP in the Upper West Region to build a formidable force to be able to defeat NPP and to rescue the country.
