The flag bearer of the All People’s Congress (APC), Mr Hassan Ayariga, has asked the electorate to vote for the APC come December 7, so that they can enjoy an all-inclusive governance.
According to him, Ghanaians are polarised and, thus, need a leader who believes in uniting them to ensure their collective interest as people with a common destiny”.
“The National Democratic Congress (NDC) and the New Patriotic Party (NPP) have failed to unite us as a country, hence the need to vote for the APC come December 7, for the party to implement pragmatic policies for our collective interest and a viable economy,” he explained.
Mr Ayariga made the appeal when he paid a courtesy call on the Chief of Madina in the La-Nkwantanang-Madina municipality, Alhaji Baba Seidu, at his palace last Saturday.
The visit, the APC leader explained, was to inform the chief of his victory in the case against the Electoral Commission (EC) at the Accra High Court last Friday.
The EC disqualified 12 presidential aspirants, including Mr Ayariga, based on some errors in filing their nominations.
However, the court, presided over by Ms Justice Barbara Teteh-Charway, last Friday quashed the EC’s decision to disqualify Mr Ayariga from contesting the December poll, describing the commission’s act as “unfair” and “unreasonable”.
Consequently, the court ordered the EC to give the APC flag bearer the opportunity to rectify the errors on his nomination forms.
Subsequently, Mr Ayariga addressed a crowd at the Madina market and explained his policies.
He spoke of his intentions to refurbish the market and ensure the market women receive financial boost to expand their businesses.
