According to Accra-based UTV, hundreds of Progressive People’s Party (PPP) members in the Bono Region have switched parties to the major opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC).
On October 18, 2023, the defection ceremony was held in Sunyani, the capital of the Bono Region, with Johnson Asiedu Nketiah, the national chairman of the NDC, and PPP representatives from the area also present.
A PPP leader gave an explanation of the reasons why the 900+ member group decided to switch to the NDC.
“PPP cannot help us retrieve Ghana from the NPP, this governance is not going well (be it) in the education, health, agric and economic sectors. Things are going south and there is the need for a new leader, hence our change of mind to join the NDC because PPP cannot win power,” he said.
