THE Constituency Secretary of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) for Tano North in the Brong Ahafo Region, Mr Kwaku Adoma, has defected to the New Patriotic Party (NPP).
He announced his defection at the offices of the Bantama Constituency of the NPP in Kumasi last Tuesday.
Mr Adoma, who owns a business in Kumasi, said he was in the process of formalising his registration with the Bantama Constituency of the party.
He said his decision to join the NPP stemmed from the achievements chalked up by the NPP government over the past seven and a half years, as well as the laudable campaign message of the presidential aspirant, Nana Akufo-Addo.
"I have realised the good works of the NPP and I think that it is good to join them to move the nation forward", Mr Adoma said.
He also stated that he decided to register with the Bantama Constituency of the party because of the visionary leadership exhibited by the MP, Ms Cecilia Abena Dapaah.
Mr Adoma promised to work hard with other NPP members to ensure a resounding victory for the party in the December elections.
The Bantama Constituency Chairman of the NPP, Mr H.K. Kokofu, who welcomed the former NDC member, said it was refreshing that the good works of the NPP had been recognised by Mr Adoma.
He said the truth could not be hidden, and that people like Mr Adoma must be congratulated.
He said Nana Akufo-Addo was the only person amongst the presidential candidates with the capability to lead the nation to success, and urged the electorate to vote massively for him as well as NPP parliamentary candidate for the December polls.
