President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo has assured the family of the murdered Member of Parliament for Mfantseman Ekow Quansah Hayford that he will take care of his children following the gruesome murder of their father.
He said this when he paid a visit to the family of the slain lawmaker Monday October 12 at Mankessim in the Central Region.
Speaking to the family members, party supporters and the people of Mankessim, Mr Akufo-Addo also assured that the perpetrators of this heinous crime will be arrested and be dealt with.
“For as long as I remain in Ghana I will do everything possible to bring those involved this crime to book,” he said, adding that “I have asked the security agencies to investigate the matter and arrest the culprits.”
He added “Ekow Quansah Hayford was a very hard working Member of Parliament, I had planned to make him a minister in my next government if I win the upcoming elections but unfortunately this development has come in.
“I will take care of the family, especially the widow and children as well I am still the president of this nation.”
“Due to his hard work I had to stop whatever I was doing to visit the family to console you. I promise I will be present during his funeral as well”.
