Three hundred defect from NPP to NDC 9/24/2007
Accra, Sept 21, GNA - Mr Samuel Ofosu-Ampofo, National Organiser of the National Democratic Party (NDC) on Thursday welcomed 300 defectors from the ruling New Patriotic Party (NPP) to the NDC in the Odomeabra/Obom Cons tituency in the Ga West District of the Greater Accra Region.

Fifty of the defectors who claimed they were former executive members of the various wards and constituency executives in the NPP, among other grievances, said they were defecting because the promises made them for employment was not fulfilled.

Their spokesman, Mr Samuel Asamoah, former Constituency Secretary said although after the 2000 elections they continued to stay with the NPP and campaigned for it to win the elections they were abandoned and the MP for the area, Mr Daud Anum Yemoh who they had stood against was the only official who was helping and interacting with them.

Mr. Ofosu-Ampofo said Ghanaians were seeing "things" for themselves and they did not need any "angel" to tell them the political situation and direction of the country under the NPP government.. He asked them to embrace the "house to house" campaign the NDC flagbearer, Professor Jphn Evans Atta Mills had embarked on and to remain true and faithful to the party.

He said the confidence of the electorate was growing in the NDC, especially after its successful fund raising dinner held recently in Accra.

Although he came short of giving the actual amount realised at the dinner, Mr Ofosu-Ampofo said pledges people made to donate bicycles, motor-bikes and vehicles to the NDC were "huge and encouraging." Mr Yaw Boateng Gyan, Deputy National Organiser of NDC asked the people to vote for Professor John Evans Atta Mills to win the 2008 elections and to remain vigilant at the polls.

Mr Akwei Thompson, NDC Greater Accra Regional Organiser asked the people to compare their living conditions that had called for a change and how they lived now and decide on the election of a suitable government, come 2008.

The party officials later inaugurated the NDC ward office at Obom. 21 Sept. 07Source:
