Late MP’s wife files nomination to contest Mfantseman Constituency seat

The wife of the late Mfantseman MP, Ophelia Hayford has filed her nomination to contest the seat in the upcoming parliamentary election on the ticket of the NPP.

This follows a decision taken by the party’s National Executive Committee (NEC) after a meeting held on Sunday, October 18, in line with Article 12 of the NPP Constitution.

According to NEC, the party had extensive consultations with all stakeholders including the constituents of Mfantseman before Mrs Ophelia Hayford was selected to be the parliamentary candidate.

Clad in black with a party-coloured scarf around her neck, the widow was on Tuesday escorted by some party executives and supporters to file her nomination at the EC’s office.
