About four hundred members of the national Democratic Congress (NDC) in the Ejura/Sekyedumasein in Ashanti Region have crossed carpet to the Npp.
This happened during the Ramadan tour of Ashanti Regional Nasara coordinator Alhaji saalim Bamba in the municipality.
Speaking with the leader of the defectors, Mr. Abdul Jalil A.K.A Obour said they have played various roles, including polling station agents and also were instrumental in grassroot mobilization of the party in the 2016 general elections in the constituency for the Former president John Mahama and the current Member of parliament Hon. Bawa.
He hailed the Npp for developing the Ejura Constituency than the NDC government hence changed their minds to join the Npp.
He added that most of the developmental projects and jobs in Ejura were provided by the Npp most especially planting for food and jobs, Nadco , Free Shs , electrification in the rural areas,Toilet facilities and water projects etc.
According to Mr. Abdul Jalil a.k.a Obour , they have noted that the NDC is only using them and their communities as election winning machines and have failed to bring development to improve their living standards, He said.
However, the Ashanti Regional Nasara coordinator Alhaji saalim Bamba blessed the four hundred defected members and with the help of Municipal chief executive Hon. Salisu Bamba and the Constituency Executives welcomed them in peace and promised to fulfill their grievances.
