I wept, questioned God over my defeat – Former MP

Am still in pain over my defeat

Former Member of Parliament of Tema East constituency,

Daniel Nii Kwartei Titus Glover, has said he is still pained by

his defeat in the 2020 parliamentary elections.

According to the former Deputy Trades Minister,

even though he takes his defeat in good faith,

internal power play gave room for his defeat.

Monday, the former MP said he wept bitterly after his

defeat and even questioned God on why he lost

because he didn’t expect that.

 “Yes,  my  defeat  came  as  a  shock  because
people never believed I could lose the Tema East seat.
I was really hurt and cried. I even asked God why
I lost because I knew I would win that seat but
trust me, within days the pain I had in me just vanished,”
he narrated.

Am still in pain over my defeat

Even though most MPs would abandon their initiated

projects in the constituency after losing their seat,

Titus Glover said he was currently continuing road

projects he initiated before his defeat.

“I am continuing all projects I initiated.

The roads in Tema East constituency, we have done

almost 80% from the Tema to Tema Newtown,” he said.

Mr. Glover said he considers his business in parliament

as ‘unfinished’ hence, will work hard to correct the

wrongs during the next election in order to return.

The former Deputy Minister of Transport lost the

seat to former Metropolitan Chief Executive (MCE) of Tema,

Isaac Ashai Odamtten who contested the seat for the first time.


He managed to poll 31,956 of the votes whereas

Mr. Odamten, the National Democratic Congress (NDC)

candidate, polled 41,692. The Tema East seat which

happens to be a safe seat for the NPP was once

won by the NDC in the 2000 polls.
