A large number of key stakeholders from the Tema East Constituency in response to the rising dissatisfaction in the leadership of the current Member of Parliament of the area, Hon. Daniel Nii Kwartei Titus-Glover, has made declarations to support the return of the current Greater Accra regional minister.
The Regional Minister in the person of Hon. Ishmeal Ashitey who served as Member of Parliament for Tema East from 1996 to 2008, and was appointed as Minister of State for Fisheries from 2001 to 2003 by former President John Agyekum Kufuor.
In recent past, the Tema East MP who doubles as Deputy Minister for Transport and new entrant Carlos Kingsley Ahinkorah, also Deputy Minister for Trade, deliberately used their political clout to foil evacuation exercises authorized by the general assembly with impunity.
Reports suggest that, not only did Mr. Titus-Glover refuse the evacuation to be carried out at the Community 1 market “Kwasia dwaso” after the highest decision making body of the Assembly had given approval, he also abused the Metropolitan Chief Executive verbally, before traders and the Restoration Works Crew of the Assembly.
According to the youth, there have been no infrastructural project since Titus-Glover occupied the seat. He has been good at disrespecting authorities and the opposition as well as promoting disunity among his own NPP members.
Sources within the constituency hinted that, the decision of calling back the 63 years old Hon. Ishmeal Ashitey was because of the great leadership skills he showed during his time in office. Reports reaching Tema Politics can confirm the interest of the regional minister in coming back for the seat though we are yet to hear from the horse’s own mouth.
