Hundreds of mourners, including President Akufo-Addo, Vice President, Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia, Speaker of Parliament, Professor Mike Oquaye; have thronged the Mfansteman Constituency in the Central Region to pay their last respects to the late Member of Parliament for the area, Ekow Quansah Hayford.
The legislator was killed by armed robbers in October while he was returning from a campaign trip.
The General Secretary of the New Patriotic Party, John Boadu, who read a tribute on behalf of the party, said the best departing gift would be to win the Mfansteman seat for the NPP.
In paying her last respect to her departed husband, wife of the late MP and now NPP Parliamentary Candidate for Mfansteman, Madam Ophelia Hayford, said she was still devastated by her husband’s passing.
He “did everything thing to protect the children and me,” she said,
She also recalled that he was always “full of smiles and unconditional love,” in her tribute.
