NDC did not celebrate E.T. Mensah enough – Cousin


Asafoanye Odzadan III, a relative of the late former Ningo-Prampram Member of Parliament (MP) Enoch Teye (E.T.) Mensah, has voiced dissatisfaction with the National Democratic Congress (NDC), claiming that the party has failed to fully honor Mr. Mensah despite his years of loyal service.

She highlighted that the NDC, as a founding member that worked with Nana Konadu and Chairman Jerry [John Rawlings], should have taken the initiative in planning his funeral.


She lamented, however, that this had not been the case.

Asafoanye Odzadan III expressed her dissatisfaction with the party’s handling of the funeral arrangements after formally alerting them.

She discussed the discrepancy between the NDC’s attendance during grieving and their absence when the family needed their help in an interview with Accra-based Citi FM on Friday, during the former Education and Sports Minister’s burial at the State House forecourt.

According to her, the NDC did not actively engage in the family’s sorrow and merely came to meet them.

She attributed the state burial to President Nana Akufo-Addo’s intervention, claiming that without his engagement, the NDC was uninterested in funeral plans.

She said that, despite Mr. Mensah’s lengthy involvement with the NDC, he is only now being praised because of his position as a Council of State member, meaning that the party did not sufficiently honor his legacy.

Enoch Teye Mensah died on October 1, 2023, at the age of 77, in South Africa, following a protracted illness.

The burial service at the State House drew mourners from all around the nation and from all political parties. The information was provided by Citi FM.
