APC backs NPP ahead of Ayariga's endorsement of Mahama

The leadership of the All People’s Party (APC) has declared support for the NPP Presidential candidate Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo ahead of the December elections.

At a press conference held by the Party’s General Secretary Razak Opoku and Mr. Ayariga’s running mate Emmanuel Bartels, the APC stated that their endorsement had become necessary due to the ‘high level of incompetence, corruption, mismanagement of the economy, high rate of unemployment, killer taxes, nepotism among others under the rule of President Mahama.

Denying any internal party wrangling, the general secretary said the party wished their flagbearer Dr. Ayariga well for his personal decision to endorse President Mahama for the polls.

Dr. Hassan Ayariga is expected to endorse a presidential candidate on Monday.

He was disqualified from the presidential race by the Electoral Commission early this month after some anomalies were discovered on his nomination forms.

The APC added that they strongly believe that only Nana Akufo-Addo can offer Ghanaians a more credible, incorruptible and transformational leadership than all the other presidential candidates contesting the 2016 general election.

They promised to seriously campaign for the victory of Nana Akufo-Addo and entreated their members and supporters to support the NPP flagbearer.
