It is now a divided house as APC endorses Nana Addo while their leader, Ayariga insists his endorsement of Mahama is final!
Chaos has erupted in the house of the All People’s Congress (APC) following a recent endorsement of the New Patriotic Party’s flagbearer, Nana Dankwa Akufo-Addo by the party’s executive without their leader, Hassan Ayariga’s support.
This move by the APC was made known to the general public through a statement signed by the APC General Secretary and Vice Presidential Candidate, Razak Kojo Opoku and Emmanuel Carl Bartels respectively, on behalf of the party’s leadership.
In the statement released Sunday morning, the APC endorses Nana Addo, stating that they “strongly believe 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 APC pledged an unequivocal support for Akufo-Addo, stating that they shall ‘seriously’ campaign for the NPP throughout the remaining days of electioneering. The party made it clear that their reason for choosing NPP against NDC is because of 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 in the statement, called on all APC members across the country to support and campaign vigorously for the NPP to win the election. They also wished their leader, Hassan Ayariga well in his personal decision to support Mahama.
Meanwhile, founder and flagbearer of the APC, Dr Hassan Ayariga is expected to officially declare his support of the NDC flagbearer, John Mahama today, being Monday the 28th of November, 2016 at the Social Aviation Centre.
After being disqualified with 12 other presidential candidates from contesting the 2016 presidential elections by the EC for some anomalies in their nomination forms, Ayariga and some others challenged their disqualification in the court which subsequently led to the court ordering the EC to extent the nomination period to enable the affected candidates make necessary corrections. But Ayariga was unable to meet the EC’s candidacy requirements within the given period.
Ayariga has however, rejected the recent endorsement of the NPP by his party, describing it as propaganda which should be ignored.
Read below, the full statement of the APC declaring their support for Nana Addo.
APC DECLARES SUPPORT FOR NANA AKUFO-ADDO FOR THE 7TH DECEMBER 2016 PRESIDENTIAL ELECTION
The National Executive Committee(NEC), the 10 Regional Executive Committees(REC) and the majority of the Parliamentary Candidates of the All People’s Congress(APC) declares support for Nana Akufo-Addo of the New Patriotic Party(NPP) for the 7th December 2016 general election.
This 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.
Enough is Enough and the trending song now is CHANGE OF INCOMPETENT JOHN MAHAMA PRESIDENCY.
We strongly believe 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.
We shall seriously campaign for the Victory of Nana Akufo-Addo and the NPP for the remaining days to the general election.
We shall provide Ghanaians with interesting revelations within FIVE(5) Days to the 7th December 2016 general election that shall cause the massive defeat of John Mahama and the NDC.
We are equally entreating all APC members across Ghana to campaign vigorously and vote massively for Nana Akufo-Addo, the only credible Presidential Candidate for the 2016 Presidential Election.
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 Dr. 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.
Finally, we are passionately appealing to Ghanaian voters to honour Nana Akufo-Addo with their votes in accordance with Deutronomy 5:16 so that all of us can be guaranteed of financial and economic healing in accordance with Acts 5:16.
#Vote Nana Akufo-Addo as President
For and on behalf of the Leadership of All People’s Congress(APC).
Razak Kojo Opoku.
(APC General Secretary)
Emmanuel Carl Bartels.
(2016 Vice-Presidential Candidate)
