The opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) suspended campaign activities in the Mfantsiman Constituency after the gruesome murder of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) Member of Parliament for the area, Ekow Kwansah Hayford.
Mr Hayford is reported to have been killed Friday dawn when some armed robbers attacked his convoy on the Abeadze Dominase-Mankessim road in his constituency.
The NDC said in a statement that the decision to suspend campaign activities in the area is to show honour to the late Hayford.
“We write to communicate the decision of the NDC PC for Mfantseman –Odziifo James Essoun – to suspend his campaigns in the Constituency until Monday in honour of the death of the sitting NPP MP/PC”, a statement from the NDC read.
“[We] strongly call on the Police to do everything in their power to apprehend the perpetrators of this heinous crime and let the law deal ruthlessly with them”, the statement further continued.
“In expressing our utmost condolences to the good people of Mfantseman, we call on the NPP government of H. E. Nana Akufo Addo to arrest the poor security situation across the country”, it added.
