Some polling executives in the Ayawaso West Wuogon Constituency have picked nomination forms for the widow of the late Member of Parliament for the Ayawaso West Wuogon Member of Parliament Emmanuel Kyeremanteng Agyarko, Madam Lydia Alhassan Agyarko.
They argue that she has paid her dues to the party in the constituency and is the best person to step into the shoes of the late MP who passed on in the United States of America a couple of weeks ago while receiving treatment for an ailment.
The Polling station secretary for the Accra Girls Vocational Institute polling station, Kojo Annor Fosu who led the delegation that went to pick the forms for Mrs. Agyarko, said on Accra based Asempa Fm that they number some 500 polling station executives in the constituency who are backing the widow based on her track record in the party and the constituency.
According to him, even though Mrs. Agyarko has not accepted the pressure mounting her to contest the seat, they believe she will yield to their demand soon.
He noted that they got together and contributed the amount of 1 thousand Ghana Cedis to pick the forms, adding that they are almost at the verge of raising the 10 thousand Ghana Cedis to cater for the filing of the nomination which is due on Sunday, December 23, 2018.
He said market women and the youth in the constituency are all yearning for Mrs. Agyarko to lead the party into the by-election and are contributing various sums to see to the attainment of the goal.
