Widow of Mr. Ekow Quansah Hayford who was shot dead on Friday dawn by some unknown assailants on the Abeadze Dominase–Abeadze Duadzi–Mankessim road has been picked as replacement for the upcoming December elections.
Ophelia Hayford according to Accra-based Asempa FM has been approved by the leadership of the New Patriotic Party (NPP).
Already, the Speaker of Parliament, Prof. Aaron Mike Ocquaye has led a Parliamentary delegation to commiserate with the family of the late MP.

Some security analysts believe the state should work at improving security in the county instead of providing MPs with personal police security.
