Member of Parliament for Tema East, Daniel Titus-Glover, says he will beat his main rival in the November parliamentary elections, Kemis Nii Ofosu-Ware, by 3,000 votes to retain his seat.
The New Patriotic Party MP beat the former Tema Municpal Chief Executive, who is running on the ticket of the National Democratic Congress, by just three votes in the 2012 elections. This earned Mr Titus Glover the title ‘MP3’.
Mr Ofosu-Ware is making his third attempt at the Tema East seat having failed to win it in the 2008 and 2012 elections, which he came close to securing.
But speaking on Onua FM during its outdoor broadcast in Tema, the incumbent MP vowed to close the gap with a whooping 3,000 votes in the polls scheduled for November 7.
He argued his good leadership, honesty and humility and the service he has rendered to the people in the constituency are what would help him beat Mr Ofosu-Ware.
He again said considering the development he has brought to the area, the people would give him an overwhelming victory in return to enable him continue with the good work.
He boosted of how accessible he has made himself to the constituents, noting he relocated to Tema Community Two in order to get closer to the electorates, adding he shares public facilities with the people in the area.
Mr Titus-Glover said he has built bathrooms, toilet facilities and a four-bedroom accommodation at the market, and tiled the market floor with concrete bricks all of which he said are aimed at making life there favourable for the people.
He said he has also fixed all old sewage pipes in the area, as well as fixed majority of the toilet facilities that were in poor condition.
The MP accused Mr Ofosu-Ware of being incompetent, alleging that he mismanaged funds when he was municipal chief executive of the area, which he claimed, was the reason why President John Mahama relieved him of his post.
Meanwhile, Mr Titus-Glover has appealed to the government to construct the port yard and its environs with the 53.8 million dollars loan it secured for the project.
