The New Patriotic Party says it will announce a replacement for the slain Member of Parliament for Mfantseman Constituency, Ekow Hayford who was killed last week tomorrow, October 15, 2020.
First Vice-Chair of the NPP in the Constituency, Yaw Berchie Nuako made this known when he spoke to Accra based Citi FM today.
Already, the wife of the late MP has been tipped as the deceased’s replacement as the parliamentary candidate for the party in the constituency but Mr. Nuako said the executives of the Party will meet today to decide who gets the nod.
“The executives of the constituency met yesterday, and we haven’t finished our conversation. All decisions will, however, be finalized today. And we will know whether it will be the wife of Ekow Hayford or someone else because his wife has not yet been confirmed and whether she would like to succeed her husband or not.”
He added that “we are still having consultations with the wife so by tomorrow which will be the one-week celebration of the death of our dear MP, we will know the answer”.
The MP passed on last week after he was shot by unknown assailants believed to be armed robbers.
Meanwhile, a special police team has been deployed to the Central Region to investigate the murder case.
