N/R: Former NDC Chairman accuse party of neglect as he defect to NPP
A veteran politician and member of the largest opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) Alhaji Abu has defected to the Governing New Patriotic Party (NPP).
According to him, the defection was as a result of several years of neglect and lack of respect for the aged in the party and sidelining persons believed to belong to the Rawling’s camp.
Alhaji Abu is believed to have been a member of the party since the PNDC era. Alhaji until now was a former chairman of the NDC at Nobisco, in the Sanarigu constituency.
In an interview on Sagani Tv monitored by Saganitvonline.Com, the defector disclosed that, ‘’the NDC has not treated me fairly at all. After using my cars to campaign for the party to win power, none of the national and regional executives remembered how much resources I have put into the party’’ he said
He also described his defection as a sign of victory for the NPP; edging his family and former colleagues of the NDC to vote for Akufo Addo and Dr. Bawumia for four more years.
It is sometimes difficult to determine exactly what motivates member(s) of a political party to switch camps.
Meanwhile, Alhaji believes despite the neglect and disrespect, NDC is in his a blood. ‘’ the party gave birth to all of us through Rawlings, if they realize their mistakes and buy me my car, why not, I will return back home’’ he assured
He also disclosed that, the NPP has not promised him a car and that his decision to defect was due to neglect and lack of care from the party’s (NDC) rank and file.
With barely 70 days to the December polls, the governing New Patriotic Party (NPP) in the northern region appears to be gathering momentum ahead of the general election.
Earlier this year, the Northern Regional Chairman of the ruling New Patriotic Party Mr. Adam Bantama Samba declared ‘Operation Win 15 Seats’ and urged all his party executives to work towards achieving that objective for the NPP on December 7, 2020.
