I pulled out due to insults – E.T Mensah
A former lawmaker of Ningo-Prampram, E.T Mensah,
has disclosed he pulled out of the Council of
State race in the Greater Accra region because of
the insults hurled at him.

The former Minister of Sports announced his
withdrawal a few hours before polls opened
nationwide, citing “personal reasons.”

However, in an interview with Accra-based Citi FM,
Mr. Mensah revealed his grandchildren could no
longer stomach the invectives coming at him
through social media, and had to prevail on him to
withdraw.

“When I read that thing [threats and insults from
the Ga-Dangbe Youth] I was appalled and because of
it my grandchildren sent me a plea to review [my
decision],” the former Mayor of Accra remarked.

The leading member of the opposition National
Democratic Congress, however, denied reports in a
section of the media that he is bitter, having
lost an internal poll prior to the 2016
parliamentary elections.

“Don’t mind the rumours going round,” Mr. Mensah
opined. According to him, he had the backing and
endorsement of the party, specifically the “NDC
Greater Accra Regional Council of Elders” during a
meeting before going public with his intention.

Meanwhile, the Chief Executive Officer of the
Ideal Financial Holdings Dr. Nii Kotei Dzani has
won the Greater Accra region Council of State
election.

Dr. Dzani who was voted the Banking & Finance
Entrepreneur for the year 2015 at the sixth Ghana
Entrepreneur Awards polled 20 votes followed by
Nene Kanor Attiapah with 12 votes.

The other candidates failed to attract a single
vote.
