- Two wives of the late MP for Ayawaso West Wuogon, Emmanuel Kyeremanten Agyarko, are reportedly fighting for his seat in parliament
- A group of people are allegedly campaigning for the first wife, Naana Agyarko and are resisting attempts by the second wife, Lydia, to take up the seat
- The request has however been rejected by the NPP
Information available to YEN.com.gh shows that the two wives of a deceased Member of Parliament (MP), Emmanuel Kyeremanten Agyarko, are both contesting for his seat.
The late Agyarko represented Ayawaso West Wuogon during his time as an MP, and the question of who takes over his seat has become a thorny issue.
A group of people are reportedly against the decision of the second wife, Lydia Agyarko, to contest in the upcoming by-elections.
They are allegedly in support of the decision of the first wife, Naana Agyarko, to solely stand for the position.
A group of people have reportedly massed up at the headquarters of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) to demand that the opportunity be given to the first wife.
Presenting a petition to the national chairman of the party, Freddie Blay, dated December 10, 2018, they stated their reasons.
According to them, they are a group of over 500 delegates from 11 electoral areas and 137 polling stations in the constituency.
Meanwhile, the petition has been rejected by the party. They have been asked to go back and tell their leadership because what is happening is putting both the party and the wives in a bad light.
The late MP passed on November 21, 2018, at a hospital in the United States after a protracted ailment.
It is however unclear when the by-election to select a new MP for the area would take place.
