Many activists of the governing National Democratic Congress (NDC) in the Jaman North Constituency of the Brong Ahafo Region have defected to the opposition New Patriotic Party (NPP).

The NDC supporters, including former financiers, cited the neglect of the district and criticized the sitting Member of Parliament (MP), Alexander Asum Ahensan for failing to develop the district.

According to the, the Jaman North District is one of the most deprived areas in the country with bad roads, no access to quality water and electricity, deplorable health and educational facilities, among others.

The former NDC kingpins noted that the MP, who doubles as a minister of state, failed to champion the development of the district.

The aggrieved NDC supporters, numbering about 500, said when they attempted to express their dissatisfaction with the plight of the plight of the people in the district, the MP ordered his bodyguard to shoot them, an incident which gravely harmed one of the NDC supporters in the area.

They criticized the Chieftaincy and Culture Minister and appealed to their friends in the NDC to join them to vote against the MP and the corrupt NDC government from power.

The leadership of the group described Nana Akufo-Addo as the right man for Ghana due to his ambitious dream for the economic transformation and free education policies.

They argued the people in the constituency to vote for Nana Akufo-Addo as president and the NPP parliamentary candidate of the area, Siaka Steven as MP to ensure the rapid development of the district.

The people of Sampa noted that road projects in the town, which were awarded on contract by the NPP, had been abandoned.
