Ashanti Region: Over 500 NDC Members Defect To NPP At Effiduase Asokore
Some groups believed to be loyalists of the main opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) in Effiduase Asokore Zongo in the Ashanti Region have dumped their party, for the New Patriotic Party (NPP).
The former NDC stalwarts, numbering over 500, announced their defection at a press conference in the constituency, earlier today, Tuesday October 27, 2020.
The group noted that their defection to the NPP was compelled by the good policies of the Akufo-Addo government, especially the flagship Free Senior High School policy among other developmental projects in their constituency which was lobbied by their Member of Parliament, Dr. Ayew Afriyie.
The group also vowed to ensure that President Nana Addo wins massively in their constituency as well as maintaining their MP with an overwhelming victory.
