An Association called ‘Nana and Bawumia Movement (NABA)’ has thrown its support behind Lydia Alhassan, wife of the late Member of Parliament (MP) for the Ayawaso West Wuogon Constituency in the Greater Accra Region, to win the parliamentary seat on the ticket of  the ruling New Patriotic Party (NPP) in the upcoming by-election following the demise of the MP.

The Chairman of NABA, Paul Amaning, explained that the Association aims at supporting all parliamentary candidates to win elections in every constituency.

“We visited Lydia Alhassan to motivate her. We will support her during her campaign. We will do everything possible for her to win the seat,” he stressed.

Vera Owiredu, Communications Director of the Association, also pleaded with party supporters when they visited the family at their Ayawaso residence to support the family to give the late MP a befitting burial. He stressed the need for them to come out in their numbers to make sure Lydia Alhassan wins the by-election.

A patron of the group, Edward Agyekum Kufuor, asserted that with the majority rallying behind Lydia Alhassan, she is the right person to lead the party, adding that they would provide her with all the support she would need since their priority at Ayawaso West is to protect their seat.

The widow, who has been tipped by many to lead the NPP in the by-election, pleaded with Ghanaians to pray for her deceased husband and the family and asked for their continuous support before, during and after the funeral which is slated for January 26, this year.

The Ayawaso West Wuogon Constituency is seen as a safe seat for the governing NPP since it first took the seat in 2000. Three successive MPs from the NPP namely George Isaac Amoo, Akosua Frema Osei-Opare and the late Agyarko have all won the seat previously.
