Shadrack Opoku, a defector from NDC to NPP has revealed the big difference between the two major political parties. Shadrack was the immediate past Bodi Constituency Organizer for his former party, NDC. He left his party after supporting and serving them for a little over 20 years.
Explaining reason for his defection, Shadrack Opoku revealed that there is a big difference between NPP and NDC. He stated that the vast difference is in pro-poor policies, infrastructural development and social intervention policies.
Shadrack stated, “I defected to New Patriotic Party because the government of Akufo-Addo has really proved that the NPP is pro-poor. They have better policies to alleviate the suffering the poor. I live in a very poor farming community and I have seen the impacts of the government on farmers. Cocoa farmers have been supported with government policies, as well as the poor and everyone in the community.”
“Talking of youth employment, many youths in my constituency have been recruited into the government’s youth in afforestation policy.”
Moreover, he commended Nana Akufo-Addo for his initiatives for his community and Ghana as a whole. “You check the developmental initiatives of Akufo-Addo’s NPP and their policies and you just have to commend President Akufo-Addo. The big difference between NPP and NDC is that just after one week of defecting to the NPP, I have been able to assist some youth from the constituency to get work as forest officers. Hence, I fully support the current government,” Shadrack said.
In conclusion, the former NDC Constituency executive urged the public to support Nana Akufo-Addo with their votes.
