The former Member of Parliament for Lower Manya Krobo constituency will be playing a major role as the chairman of President John Mahama's 2016 campaign team in selected constituencies in the Eastern Region.

The firebrand former MP who once broke ranks with the party has been tasked by the regional and national executive committee of the NDC to garner votes for the President.

Popularly known as the ‘Political Maradonna’, Teye Nyaunu's foremost responsibility is to lead a team of NDC executives on an outreach program in Lower Manya Krobo, Yilo Krobo, Upper Manya Krobo,  Akropong and other constituencies in Akuapem-Krobo enclave.

The idea of the outreach program is to sensitize the grassroots on the upcoming limited registration exercise and to explain government policies to its membership.

Speaking after an NDC stakeholder meeting in Koforidua, Nyaunu, a staunch follower of ex-president Rawlings, founder of the party expressed satisfaction with his inclusion in the campaign.

According to him the top hierarchy of the NDC met with him in Accra to deliberate on his role in the 2016 campaign.

"We had a meeting last Thursday or so in Accra with the national chairman, General Secretary and the vice president. We discussed a lot and they welcomed me, “he stated.

“I have a role to play to ensure that the party I belong to win the elections. In fact I’m back to ensure that my good friend John Mahama, the ‘political Ronaldinho’ is elected again as the president. I have decided to campaign for my friend because I can see that he's really performing. The evidences are there for you to see expect that he inherited a bad legacy so people may think he caused some of the problems but he didn’t,” he explained.

The former third deputy speaker of ECOWAS Parliament explained that he will not hesitate to tell the president and the leadership of the NDC the realities on the ground, should he find it necessary.

“I am not going to sing anybody's praises when I shouldn't sing. I am going to tell them what the grassroots are saying and that is going to help us win massively because if you shelve it’s going to create problem," he explained.

The former Lower Manya Krobo MP came under intense scrutiny from top officials of the NDC for among other actions, endorsing the candidature of Mrs Rawlings when she broke away from the party to form the NDP.
