NDC Group In Volta Region Threatens Defection

A group calling itself Volta Youth for Justice is threatening to leave the National Democratic Congress (NDC) party following the voting out of Voltarians from the Executives of the party.

A spokesperson for the group, Jerry Agbesi, said members of the party in the Volta Region are tired of playing second fiddle in the party.

“Our leaders have failed to focus on us so we are giving them some weeks to think about how they have taken us for granted else we would advise ourselves by defecting to another political party,” he said on Neat FM monitored by Adomonline.com.

His comment comes after a defeated National Organiser contestant, Anita De-Sosoo said the defeat of many Voltarian candidates who were aspiring to frontline positions meant that Ewes had been sidelined from the game.

Mr Samuel Ofosu Ampofo, an Akan, is the newly-elected Chairman of the NDC after beating Dan Abodakpi who is from the Volta Region and three other contestants at the Congress.

Mr Agbesi believes the development is part of a grand scheme to ensure the founder of the NDC, Jerry John Rawlings, becomes redundant in NDC.

He also accused former President John Mahama of sponsoring delegates in NDC to vote for his preferred candidates ahead of the 2020 polls.

“We have learnt with shock how assigns of former President Mahama ran helter-skelter, vigorously campaigning for the aspirants who won against our candidates. The NDC is ungrateful and we shall punish them for disrespecting us” he warned.
