Founder of the All People’s Congress (APC), Hassan Ayariga, has jabbed Ghana Union Movement’s (GUM) Reverend Christian Kwabena Andrews over his third position.
In a report sighted by YEN.com.gh on Myjoyonline, Mr Ayariga asked Osofo Kyiri Abosom to stop claiming the third position in the just ended 2020 polls because it was no different from the last position.
Ayariga went on to add that all the other smaller parties have failed since they could not even secure one percent of the total votes cast in the December 7 polls.
“I want the GUM leader to know that we have all failed. We the smaller parties didn’t even get one percent of the votes. It is a disgrace and the worst results ever. For all the huge monies we have spent during the campaign and we didn’t even get one percent is not something that I am happy about,” Hassan Ayariga said while granting an interview to Adom FM.
He added that the smaller parties had to be ashamed of themselves and asked GUM's flagbearer to stop claiming the third position because it was not something to be proud of.
Akufo-Addo won the presidential election with 51.59% of votes cast while John Mahama placed second after securing 47.36% of the total votes cast.
Osofo Kyiri Abosom obtained 105,565 votes while Ayariga polled 7,140 votes.
In another election-related report, YEN.com.gh earlier reported that actress and staunch New Patriotic Party supporter, Bibi Bright, has had her plush car vandalised by some men wearing National Democratic Congress-branded t-shirts.
In a photo sighted by YEN.com.gh on Instagram, a car which had its side window damaged was shared by the actress and she claimed it was her car.
Bibi Bright went on to narrate all that had happened and how she got her car destroyed by the men.
