The All People’s Congress (APC) says it would not allow its presidential candidate, Hassan Ayariga, to participate in the IEA presidential encounter because the latter has exhibited “nonsense partiality” towards some participants.
The party said IEA appears “confused” when it created a platform for presidential candidates with representation in parliament in a “much respected conference room with Air Condition”, whilst the rest were hosted in an open space “full of mosquitoes”.
A statement issued by the General Secretary of APC, Razak Kojo Opoku described the move by the IEA and its management as “disrespectful” and “bogus”.
“All People’s Congress (APC) is a very serious Registered Political Party with structure bigger than the IEA, and we SHALL NEVER authorized our Noble Leader and 2016 Presidential Candidate to participate in the bogus 2016 Presidential Debate organized by the worthless IEA,” the statement said.
Below is the full statement
IEA PLATFORM IS A SERIOUS JOKE TO APC
The platform of the IEA for the Presidential Candidates and Vice-Presidential Candidates has totally become irrelevant to the Ghanaian electorates.
The Board and Management of IEA are very confused. IEA now has “IEA EVENING ENCOUNTER” for Parties with Representation in Parliament and “IEA CONVERSATION” for Parties without Parliament Representation.
Presidential Candidates for NPP, CPP & PNC are being hosted in a much respected conference room with Air Condition whereas Presidential Candidates for Parties without Representation in Parliament are hosted in a much disrespectful venue precisely IEA Garden full of mosquitoes.
This is clearly a nonsense partiality been demonstrated by the IEA to Nana Konadu Agyemang Rawlings(NDP 2016 Presidential Candidate)
All People’s Congress(APC) is a very serious Registered Political Party with structure bigger than the IEA, and we SHALL NEVER authorized our Noble Leader and 2016 Presidential Candidate to participate in the bogus 2016 Presidential Debate organized by the worthless IEA.
The IEA Platform is too tiny to Dr. Hassan Ayariga to market himself as well as project the policies and programmes of APC to the Ghanaian Voters.
Lastly, I pity Nana Konadu Agyemang Rawlings for her very poor delivery at the IEA Conversation. Madam, with all the noise and vilifications against your husband Party, we thought you are going to be the best alternative to NDC but surprisingly your analysis and response to the questions at IEA shows that you and your NDP are not really serious for political power.
You couldn’t utilizes 19years of Political Power as a First Lady to transform Ghana and positively change lives, What can you use 4years of political power to achieve?
