“Our noble MP is gone, and we need somebody who will replace him in Parliament. Therefore, in our constitution, when somebody pass on, we open nominations for those who are interested in the constituency to pick forms. After the picking, they will submit, and we do vetting, and then we will do elections. This morning, I came here to open nominations. Nomination forms is GHC3,000, when you are coming to submit it, you pay GHC35,000”.
