Tension is brewing in the camp of the All People’s Congress as its 2016 Presidential aspirant has denied the party or himself has endorsed the New Patriotic Party (NPP) flagbearer, Nana Akufo-Addo ahead of the December polls.
233livenews.com sighted a statement signed by the General Secretary and 2016 Vice Presidential nominee of the party where the party supposedly declared its support for the NPP candidate.
The statement said, “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 8years 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,” the statement said.
The founder of the party, Hassan Ayariga is yet to comment publicly on the issue but the two members of party accused him of taking a personal decision of endorsing the National Democratic Congress’ (NDC), John Mahama, which they disagree with.
Ayariga was disqualified from the 2016 presidential race by the Electoral Commission because some persons who endorsed his nomination forms also subscribed to other presidential candidates in the race.
