The former People’s National Convention National Youth Organizer and the current Deputy National Disaster Management Organisation (NADMO) coordinator, Abu Ramadan, has said President Nana Akufo-Addo inspired him to join the New Patriotic Party.

“I’m not a medical doctor or a lawyer; I’m a politician by career so I had to select where best would shoot my career as a politician. And I felt my home was with the NPP and Nana Addo being my biggest inspiration to want to ever be in NPP and he being the frontrunner to be president, I think I didn’t make a wrong decision,” he said.

Speaking on Citi FM’s “Point Blank” show Friday, the junior brother of the second lady, Samira Bawumia, said in transitioning from the PNC to the NPP, the then governing National Democratic Congress should have been his natural home but noted that the party was unattractive and riddled with corruption.

“The NPP presented a more people friendly policies…and at that time the NDC was so unattractive and still unattractive to up thinking and moral upright people because of the issue of corruption, they way and manner the government was run, the way and manner they didn’t care about the plight of the people moved me closer to the NPP than it should have taken to the NDC,” he said.

Mr Ramadan joined the NPP at its last rally in Accra during the 2016 election saying his former party had no chance of winning political power.

“The problem was that at that time the PNC had lost traction on the ground. Until today the fortunes of the party keeps dwindling by the day and it looks as if any other day I look at the party again and I always tell myself I made the right decision, leaving at that time moving to a more formidable party to enhance by political career.”
