Confusion in APC: Ayariga endorses Mahama, executives endorse Akufo-Addo

There is a full-blown crisis in the All People’s Congress led by disqualified presidential candidate, Hassan Ayariga.
Following his inability to be on the ballot for the December vote, Mr Ayariga decided to endorse President John Mahama, presidential candidate of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), without recourse to party structures.

The APC’S ten regional executives, the National Executive Committee and the majority of its aspiring MPs have also thrown their weight behind Nana Akufo-Addo, presidential nominee of the New Patriotic Party.

In a statement, the party’s General Secretary, Razak Opoku, said: “endorsement of Nana Akufo-Addo has become very necessary considering the high level of incompetence, corruption, mismanagement of the economy, high rate of unemployment, killer taxes, collapsing of the private sector businesses, high utility bills, nepotism, tribal politicking etc. under the 8 years rule of John Mahama NDC.”

The party says it believes strongly that only Nana Akufo-Addo can offer Ghanaians a more credible, incorruptible and transformational leadership than all other Presidential Candidates contesting the 2016 general election.

The party, thus, has pledged to campaign vigorously to get Akufo-Addo elected.

The party statement also noted that: “Nana Akufo-Addo agenda for jobs creation is the only solution to the socio-economic transformation of Ghana. Upon sober reflection, we strongly believe in the 1 District 1 Factory, 1 Village 1 Dam, 1 Constituency $1million  as doable and feasible Policies.

“However, we wish Hassan Ayariga (APC Founder & Leader) well for his personal decision to endorse John Mahama for the Presidency on the 28th November 2016 at the Aviation Social Centre.

“We are urging all Ghanaian Voters to vote against the NDC and reject John Mahama in accordance with Revelation 3:16. ”

It said voters should honour Nana Akufo-Addo with their votes in accordance with Deuteronomy 5:16 so that all of us can be guaranteed of financial and economic healing in accordance with Acts 5:16.
