Over 50 Youth from the New Patriotic Party (NPP) in the Cape Coast South Constituency in the Central Region has crossed carpet to the opposition National Democratic Congress over the passage of Electronic Levy (E-Levy) by the Nana Akufo-Addo led government.
The defected youth are NPP members in the Ekon Electoral Area in the Cape Coast South Constituency.
According to them, they are very disappointed in the Government for passing the Electronic Levy bill upon all the concerns raised by a large section of Ghanaians.
The defecters say they least expected that the Akufo-Addo government will mismanage the country as it is doing now.
They said, they have regretted campaigning and voting for the New Patriotic Party during the 2020 general election.
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 National Democratic Congress because of the hardship Ghanaians are going through. He continued that he’s poised to campaign massively for the NDC to wrestle power in 2024.
He also appealed to Ghanaians and NPP members who are fed-up with the Akufo-Addo administration to join the NDC as it’s the only party which can save Ghanaians from current economic hardship.
Receiving the over 50 defeated New Patriotic Party Youth into the National Democratic Congress, the Member of Parliament for Cape Coast South Constituency Hon. Ricket Kweku Hegan thanked the Youth for acknowledging the economic hardship Ghanaians are going through.
He 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.
The deputy Central Regional NDC Youth Organizer Botchway Bright on behalf of the party’s youth Wing accepted and welcomed them into the great party.
He promised to support them if NDC wins the upcoming 2024 General election, which he’s confident the party will win.
