Isaac Ashai Odamtten
The National Democratic
Congress (NDC) has issued a two-week ultimatum to Isaac Ashai Odamtten, the
party’s parliamentary candidate for the Tema East Constituency of the Greater
Accra Region, for relinquishing his position.
He has been asked to avail
himself to his constituents before February 18, 2019 to carry out his duties to
avoid serious action against him.
Information gathered by DAILY
GUIDE from sources within the party indicates that the former Chief
Executive (MCE) of Tema Metropolitan Assembly (TMA) reportedly left the shores
of the country to further his education immediately after winning the party’s
last parliamentary primaries.
He is said to be in the US for
the past year where he is said to be currently
schooling at Oral Roberts University.
Fearing the repercussions of
his absence, the party has issued an ultimatum to him in a statement signed by Theophilus Tetteh–Cha,
the Greater Accra Regional Secretary, which was sighted by DAILY GUIDE, directing
him to make himself available to start campaigning.
Members of the party through
the Concerned Youth of Tema East Constituency (CoYTEC) have also expressed
concern about his absence.
According to them, the attitude
of the aspirant MP is disrespectful.
“We are compelled under the
circumstances to demand from the constituency executives to prevail upon Hon.
Odamtten to avail himself to the duties consistent with his office with all
sense of seriousness and urgency, lest we advise ourselves appropriately.
Failure to do this will leave us with no option but advise ourselves
appropriately,” the party branch executives stated.
