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

the National Democratic Congress (NDC).

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.

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.
