The two “quarrelling” parliamentary aspirants for the Weija-Gbawe constituency, Tina Mensah of the NPP and Obuobia Darko-Opoku of the ruling NDC have decided to put Ghana and the constituency first.
The two were seen in a photo making rounds on social media supposedly praying for peace.
The image which has gone viral shows the two feuding candidates holding hands and facing each other in a prayer mood at the Mendskrom Presbyterian Church of Ghana in Accra. The two were reportedly invited for the Harvest of the church.
They have both accused each other of unfair politicking with Tina often raising issues of incumbency abuse against her rival, who is deputy head of the Ghana Free Zones Board.
A recent case of tension between the two was a donation of an ambulance to the general hospital within the constituency by Obuobia on her birthday. Tina and her supporters have attacked her for the move, claiming the gift was sponsored by the government, an accusation she has flatly denied
