Below is the Tweet by the President:
I am shocked and saddened by news of the murder of the Member of Parliament for Mfantseman, Hon. Ekow Quansah Hayford, by suspected armed robbers in the early hours of this morning. It is a sad day for Mfantseman and for Mother Ghana.
My last encounter with him was on 30th June, this year, when I commissioned a water supply project at Anomansa, in his constituency.
By all accounts, he was very much appreciated and loved by his constituents, and I expect the police to bring the perpetrators of this gruesome, cruel act to book as soon as possible.
My deepest condolences to his family, to the Mfantseman constituency, to the New Patriotic Party, and to Parliament. May his soul rest in perfect peace.
Ekow was reportedly shot on the Abeadze–Mankessim Road when returning from a campaign event.
