Ever since the 2015 NDC primaries there has been no love loss between the two Ningo-Prampram legislators, with rumors circulating that Mr. Mensah allegedly funded Sam George Nartey's opponent's campaign; a member of the opposing political party.
Speaking to Nana Ama Agyarko on Accra News on Wednesday February 15, 2017, Sam George said that although party executives had not met concerning ET Mensah's bid for the Council of State, he personally wished his former "teacher" well.
“As far as I am aware, the NDC in Ningo-Prampram have not met to take a position that we are unhappy with Mr ET Mensah’s decision to contest,” he said.
“[ET Mensah] is very experienced in politics and knows the ins and outs. Being human, you weigh the positives and negatives of the decision you take. And, so, if by his assessment it would help his legacy by contesting for such a position, all I, as Ningo-Prampram MP, can do is to pray to God for His favour on him. And if it is the will of God, who enthrones, he gets what he asks for.”
“It is his decision, so, we can only wish him the best of luck. As to what people say about it, they are entitled to that view. I am a party member, what the leadership of the party says about it is what we will go with.”
