The Founder and Leader of All People’s Congress (APC), Hassan Ayariga will be acclaimed as the flagbearer of the party on Monday, August 24, at its National Delegates Congress in Accra.
The Party will also unveil its ticket for the 2020 elections with the announcement of its running mate at the Congress.
According to the General Secretary of the Party, Mr Mordecai Thiombiano, the founder was the only individual who picked up nomination forms to contest for the role.
“Nobody came, It was only the founder and leader who picked up a form… Per our underground work that we did, even though we have very capable men in the party but everybody feels that Mr Ayariga is popular and vibrant and must be given the opportunity to lead the state,” Mr Thiombiano said.
He added that the party was poised to become the third force in Ghanaian politics with Mr Ayariga as its leader.

Ghanaians fed-up with NPP & NDC
“Ghanaians are now fed-up with these two parties (NPP and NDC), gone are the days that if it’s not NPP it’s NDC, we have grown past that level. Ghanaians were only waiting for a third force. They were waiting for a leader that will be able to lead Ghana aside the NPP and the NDC and God has chosen a young and vibrant leader in the person of Hassan Ayariga”.
He also accused the two parties of neglecting deprived communities whenever they win power.
Mr Thombiano said the party’s manifesto which is crafted based on its all-inclusive idealogy would soon be unveiled after the Congress.
“We want an all-inclusive government that will be run based on who has the best skills or ideas and not who has a party card. We would always do what is best for the country and not what serves the parochial interests of the few. The date of the manifesto launch would be made known at the congress”.
