The disqualified presidential candidate of the All People’s Congress Hassan Ayariga has thrown his weight behind President John Dramani Mahama, declaring unflinching support to ensure that 54% of vote is secured for a one-touch victory in the upcoming 2016 elections.
According to Dr. Ayariga, there is only one candidate who has extraordinary traits of leadership and character much to the extraordinary demands of this moment in history, which is no other than the President of the Republic of Ghana.
Describing President Mahama who’s the flag-bearer of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), as a listening leader and calm hence the suitable person to lead the nation.
“No matter how people try to knock him down, he never quits. That is the man I know so well. His actions inspire others to dream more, learn more, do more and become more,” Dr. Ayariga noted.
Ahead of today’s endorsement, there was confusion in the camp of the APC as Ayariga’s executives gave their support to opposition leader Nana Akufo-Addo.
While the founder – Ayariga – preferred the NDC’s candidate, some top executives of the party tipped 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”
