The opposition New Patriotic Party (NPP) in the Bole-Bamboi Constituency of the Northern Region has been hit hard following the sudden defection of the constituency campaign chairman, Braa Prex-doe.
The incident occurs less than 90 days to the December 7 Polls where the country’s two largest parties-the NPP and NDC have tipped themselves as victors.
He disclosed that one of the reasons he left the NPP is because of Nana Akufo-Addo’s One Village One Dam policy he described as the most ridiculous promise by a modern politician.
On Bole-based Nkilgi FM, Prex- doe said politics is a game of ideas and so if one agrees with the ideas of another, he support’s him. According to him President John Mahama has worked hard to bring development to all corners of the country and so there is no need for anyone to support NPP. He believes the legacy of John Mahama will be felt for over 30 years.
The former NPP man said NPP is not ready for power considering the inner wrangling where all those sympathetic to former President J.A. Kufour’s have been sacked from the party. He said Akufo-Addo has no enough experience like John Mahama and will be a bad ruler should Ghanaians make a mistake to vote for him as President.
Prex- doe also disclosed that one of his reasons for joining the NDC is the good leadership and humble nature of Alhaji Issifu Sulemana, the NDC parliamentary candidate for Bole- Bamboi. He commended Alhaji Issifu Sulemana whom he also described as his role model for playing a crucial role in making him cross from NPP to NDC.
He said Alhaji Issifu is an inspirational leader and therefore encouraged the people of Bole- Bamboi to give him a massive support to win the Bole- Bamboo seat.
Earlier Braa Prex-doe a very bold and former staunch supporter of NPP and the fiercest critic of President Mahama from Bole wrote on his Facebook timeline that, it took him a lot of time to meditate, ponder over the issues on the ground before making his final judgment, and hence his decision endorse President Mahama.
