Titus, Odamtten Smoke Peace Pipe

From Inusa Musah, Tema
Daniel Nii Kwartei Titus-Glover, Member of Parliament (MP) for Tema East, and Isaac Ashai Odamtten, Tema Metropolitan Chief Executive (MCE), have finally buried their long-standing difference, in order to help the development of Tema.

The reconciliation of the duo is also to strengthen unity and brotherliness. The Tema East MP and the MCE have not been on good terms for over two years, for reasons best known to them.

Their sour relationship led to the two going parallel on issues concerning the forward march of Tema East, as the accusations and counter-accusations from the two degenerated.

In fact, Daniel Nii Kwartei Titus-Glover never attended any function that had Isaac Odamtten in attendance, ever since the latter became the MCE for Tema.  However, history was written last Thursday at Tema Manhean, where the Tema Metropolitan Assembly (TMA) inaugurated members of the Tema East Sub-Metro District Council and unit committees of the 7th Assembly.

The gathering was flabbergasted to see Mr. Titus-Glover in attendance smartly dressed in his green fugu. The MP wore a huge smile on his face to receive and shake hands with Mr. Odamtten, who arrived at the function after Mr. Glover. The beauty of the function was capped, when Robert Kempes Ofosuware also showed up and moved to take a seat on the immediate right side of the MP.

It was a peaceful, relaxing and a joyous occasion, as the three – Robert Kempes Ofosuware, Daniel Nii Kwartei Titus-Glover and Isaac Ashai Odamtten – sat next to one another. The gathering could not stop applauding the two – MP and MCE – for the camaraderie displayed.

Kempes Ofosuware’s brief address to Mr. Titus-Glover was appetising and one that explained the beauty of politics. The three took turns to address the 90 Unit Committee Members and 30 Councils inaugurated that day. Each of them, in their address, advised the newly-inaugurated members to avoid usurpation, so that there will not be conflicts.

The members were also charged to work very hard to find a lasting solution to the sewer sanitation challenges of Tema Manhean. Mr. Titus-Glover observed that sanitation has been the major concern at Tema Manhean. He promised to team up with the assembly and the newly-inaugurated members to solve that challenge for good.

Mr. Kempes Ofosuware advised the members to work efficiently, devoid of politics and bickering. Mr. Odamtten said he had no doubt in the qualities of the members, and believed they will help the Assembly to continue to pursue excellence.

After Mr. Joseph Mc Ali Junior, a Tema Magistrate Court Judge, had sworn the members into office, The Chronicle caught up with Mr. Daniel Nii Kwartei Titus-Glover about the unity between him and the MCE.  He explained that he personally called the MCE on phone to schedule a meeting with him in his (MCE’s) office.

“So on Wednesday, I personally drove to Mr. Odamtten’s office at the TMA, where the two of us buried our differences. “Isaac is my younger brother, and for me, I did not think politics should divide us. We agreed with each other on our shortcomings, and today, you have seen me here, because we have buried our differences, and I can promise you of better times between the two of us,” the Tema East MP promised.
