The Member of Parliament (MP) for Tema East Constituency, Daniel Nii Kwarrtei Titus-Glover has assured his constituents that he will convincingly defeat Robert Kempes Ofosuware, the National Democratic Congress (NDC) parliamentary candidate in this year’s general elections.
According to him, Mr Ofosuware, who has been re-elected to represent the NDC at Tema East in the November 7 elections, would not be a match for him.
“I used about 45 days to campaign before the 2012 contest and I managed to beat Kempes who used not less than four years to campaign including using his office as Metropolitan Chief Executive (MCE) for Tema. This shows clearly that the people of Tema East were not pleased with his administration.
“Can you imagine the disgrace I will give him in November 7 elections because I have done a lot of visible work for my constituency and my people can attest to the fact that I’m a hardworking MP and not a joker and I will retire Kempis in this year’s election,” he boldly stated.
They met at Manhean, a suburb of Tema Newtown where the Tema Metropolitan Assembly (TMA) inaugurated Unit and Council Committees of the Tema East sub-metro District.
According to him, “Kempes is a joke. He says those things to make himself happy. I’m coming like a sub-marine and I want to assure my brother Kempes that I will beat him and retire him in this year’s election.
“I will bring him onboard after giving him a resounding beating to assist me build the constituency,”
But in a quick rebuttal, Mr. Ofosuware added that the MP should start preparing his handing over notes to him after the November 7 elections.
He expressed excitement about meeting his political opponent at the function, adding that he was working hard to win the Tema East Parliametary seat for the NDC for the first time.
According to him, he would give Titus-Glover and the NPP a fierce contest after learning from his mistakes.
It would be recalled that in 2012, the NPP in the Tema East Constituency voted Mr. Titus-Glover as their parliamentary candidate after their earlier candidate, Kofi Brako moved to contest for the same position unopposed at Tema Central after the Electoral Commission (EC) created new constituencies in the country.
