Former Independent Parliamentary candidate rejoins NDC
Former Independent Parliamentary Candidate for the Tema East Constituency
in Election 2016, Theophilus Nii Ankamah Densu-Tetteh has rejoined
According to him, he resigned from the party in 2016 to prove a point
that the party structures at the time were not working.
“I actually returned to my mother party in the build-up to Election 2020
after Mr. Isaac Ashai Odamtten, the current Member of Parliament (MP)
for Tema East Constituency won the party’s primaries and sought my support.
“The MP reminded me that we are both from one mother and father so
why were we trying to divide ourselves in the Constituency; we can do
it better when we come together,” he explained.

Mr. Densu-Tetteh told the Ghana News Agency in an interview at Tema that
he had no intentions of contesting in any race like primaries while
Mr. Odamtten remained as the NDC MP.
“I may consider contesting only if the MP, Mr. Odamtten, decides not
to contest for the seat again,” he said.
In a related interview, Mr. Odamtten told the GNA that Mr. Densu-Tetteh
was coopted in the capacity as an aide; he has shown commitment to
the party’s cause and had been part of all activities of the party.
“If a party member is ready to serve, you must allow and I am proud
of the contributions, he is making and I am happy to refer to him as
my aide because the reality is he is giving me a lot of assistance,” he said.
“I came into the NDC Primaries from the background as a former
TMA Metropolitan Chief Executive Officer so I understood a few challenges
of the constituency and I didn’t have to be self-concerted to believe
that I can do it all so recognizing his track record I approached
him and smoked the peace pipe.
“I told him in the past if nobody saw your talent, I know what you
are made of, and you carry something that can help the cause
of the NDC in Tema East,” Mr. Odamtten noted.

According to Mr. Odamtten, his election as MP was won by the people as
God brought a lot of people his way to help and was grateful to them
for their support in capturing the seat and belief together,
the constituency would develop.
