Presidential candidate of the All People’s Congress (APC), Hassan Ayariga has sacked his general secretary, Razak Kojo Opoku and running mate Emmanual Carl Bartels from the party after they endorsed the presidential candidate of the New Patriotic Party, Nana Akufo-Addo.
Hassan Ayariga in an interview with CitiFM reveals that both party members seize to be members of the party.
“I don’t have a vice presidential candidate. What we have now is the leader and founder of the APC and that is me. Mr. Bartels and the General Secretary were relieved of their duties last Friday and they are aware of that so they are not members of the APC.The APC disregards such a statement. Such a statement cannot be coming from the All People’s Congress led by Hassan Ayariga. We in the APC we’ve made our mission clear that we are going to endorse a candidate on Monday, 28th November, 2016. As at now any statement or message out there is not coming from the APC nor the leaders of the APC hence should be disregarded and treated with the contempt it deserves,” he added.
The members argue 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”.
