APC fights over who to endorse in December polls

Hassan Ayariga’s All People’s Congress appear to be in shambles over which presidential candidate to endorse ahead of the December 7 polls.

While the founder prefers the NDC’s candidate, President John Mahama, some top executives of the party have settled on the main opposition party’s Nana Akufo-Addo.

At a press conference, the party executives said "The National Executive Committee, the ten regional executive committee and the majority of the Parliamentary candidates of the APC declare support for Nana Akufo Addo of the NPP for the December 7 general elections.

"This endorsement has become necessary considering the high level of incompetence, corruption, mismanagement of the economy, high rate of unemployment, killer taxes, collapse of private sector business, high utility bills, nepotism , tribal politicking under the eight year rule of the NDC.

"Enough is enough and the trending song is the change of the incompetent Mahama presidency. We strongly believe that only the Nana Akufo-Addo can offer a more credible, incorruptible and transformational leadership than all the other presidential candidates contesting the December elections”.

Meanwhile, Mr Ayariga who has announced the suspension of the defiant executives is set to publicly endorse the President Monday.
