Defeated Member of Parliament for Lower Manya Krobo Constituency Michael Teye Nyaunu has said that he does not have any regrets for the stance he took against the late Professor John Evans Atta Mills.
He explained that his stance was an expression of truth.
Mr Teye Nyaunu, who lost the 2012 parliamentary elections to Deputy Eastern Regional Minister Ebenezer Okletey Terlarbi, was speaking to ace broadcast journalist Bright Nana Amfoh on TV 3’s late news broadcast programme News @ 10 on Monday, December 10, 2012.
Michael Teye Nyaunu, who is popularly known by his initials, MTN, stated that he disagreed with the late Professor Mills because he did not “walk his talk.”
“After winning, the late president appointed those who didn’t work,” he added.
He said Professor Mills failed to acknowledge the hardwork some members of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) put in his campaign during the electioneering period of 2008.
He disclosed that on a campaign platform in his consituency in 2008, the late President Mills promised to reward their efforts.
He said his posture, which was seen by his support for Nana Konadu Agyemang-Rawlings, was a way of “speaking the truth.”
“I have no regrets at all,” he told Bright Nana Amfoh.
Regarding his defeat in the just-ended elections, Mr Nyaunu said it was free and fair.
“It has been peaceful, orderly and I thank the security agencies for doing such a wonderful work.”
MTN stood as an independent candidate in his constituency after losing the primaries to Mr Terlarbi.
He polled 3,658 votes to come third behind MP-elect Terlarbi and New Patriotic Party’s Dedo Agyarko Kusi, who polled 16,181 representing 35.21 per cent of the total votes cast in the Constituency.
