In other news, the first wife of the late Member of Parliament for Mfantseman constituency, Ophelia Quansah Hayford has finally filed her the nomination forms at the Electoral Commission office.
She would be duly representing the ruling New Patriotic Party(NPP) as the parliamentary candidate the upcoming December polls if given the nod.
In a report filed by Peacefmonline.com, she urged party members and supporters to help her win the election to retain the seat for the party, as she cannot do the work alone.
She however promised to put in her best to win the seat and complete every developmental project to honour her late husband.
“I promise to work hard to ensure that the NPP wins the seat and honour the memory of my late husband and continue with his developmental agenda for Mfantseman. I will ensure that all my husband’s unfinished business in the constituency is completed when I win,” she said.
