Sekuo's defection to NPP will not make a difference - Analyst

Political Scientist and Lecturer at the University of Ghana, says Dr. Sekou Nkrumah's move to the New Patriotic Party (NPP) will not make any impact.

Evans Aggrey Darko has said Ghanaians must interrogate Sekou’s level of influence and his reasons for moving to the NPP.

“Usually when a defection takes place the party is faced with the challenge of the number of supporters he will take away. However in such cases, we must look at the nature of person who has defected” he told Citi News.

He opined that Dr. Sekou’s defection will not tilt the political power over to the opposition parties.

Dr. Sekuo resigned from the NDC last year following his several public criticisms of the Mills administration.**
