Allow me to bury my husband; Agyarko’s second wife speaks on by-election

Lydia Alhassan, the second wife of the late MP for Ayawaso West Wuogon constituency Kyeremateng Agyarko, says she is still in a “state of shock”, and has as yet not developed interest in contesting the upcoming by-election in the area.

She confirmed that though some members of the NPP have approached her in that regard, she said she is more interested in finding rest for the late husband.

“Yes, several members of our party in the constituency in general have approached to suggest that I consider the idea and my response to them have remained the same, that I be allowed to bury the father of my children in peace, and that the time is quite inappropriate for me now to engage in any such discussions,” Lydia Alhassan said in a statement on Tuesday.

Lydia, the mother of five of Mr. Agyarko’s seven children, says the way people are pushing the two wives of the late MP to contest the by-election beats her imagination.

Below is Lydia Alhassan’s statement

I wish to clear the air and state that I have not expressed interest in the upcoming by-election in the Ayawaso West Wuogon constituency.

I have remained in a deep state of shock and mourning following the sudden demise of the father of the seven beautiful children of EK, five of which I bore with him.

I believe I can say same for Naana and her beautiful kind and hearted Jane and Sonny.

Why anybody will want to do this to a family in mourning beats my imagination.

Yes, several members of our party in the constituency in general have approached to suggest that I consider the idea and my response to them have remained the same, that I be allowed to bury the father of my children in peace, and that the time is quite inappropriate for me now to engage in any such discussions.

I have also encouraged all to take the matter of the by-election in our constituency to the Lord in prayer.

I have heard of agitations from sections of the constituency for my candidature and I have sought to discourage those actions believing that at the right time the rank and file of the party shall decide on a candidate that we should all support.

I appeal to the NPP family to tone down on the politics a bit in honour of a man, who sacrificed and paid his due to the party at this time as the family prepares for a befitting buria

Let us join the family mourn a brother, a father, a husband, a gentle soul who loved humankind extremely.

Signed
Lydia Alhassan
