The widow of the late Member of Parliament (MP) for Mfantseman, Mrs. Ophelia Mensah Hayford, has sailed her way through the 2020 parliamentary election.

The leadership of the New Patriotic Party in October 2020 confirmed Mrs. Hayford’s nomination to replace her husband.

Mrs. Hayford retired from the Ghana Police Service following the confirmation after her husband, Ekow Kwansah Hayford, was shot and killed by some armed robbers while on campaign duties.

She polled 36,021 which is 51.93% of the total vote cast against her competitor, James Odziifo Essoun who had 32,438 votes.

According to the party, Mrs. Hayford, though not a politician, was a grassroots person who is loved by the constituents.
