Frimpong, Brong-Ahafo Deputy Regional Propaganda Secretary of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), has denied a newspaper publication that 11 members of the party in Tain constituency had defected to join the New Patriotic Party (NPP). He said the publication in the "Chronicle" newspaper "is a blatant lie aimed at deceiving the NPP".

Mr. Frimpong told the Ghana News Agency investigations conducted by NDC regional executives in the constituency had revealed that the publication was unfounded.

He cited that the same paper "deceived Ghanaians of numerous defections by NDC members before the 2008 general election". "It is a strategy used by the paper as a propaganda machinery to canvass for votes for NPP in the 2012 general elections", Mr Frimpong added.

He urged supporters of the NDC not to panic over such publications as the party was working tirelessly to retain power in 2012 so it could continue with its good works towards the socio-economic development of the country.

Mr. Frimpong assured members of the NDC in the constituency as well as in the region to remain steadfast and not to panic but to remain committed to the party.
