Election 2016: APC suspends campaign

Hassan Ayariga during his campaign

Disqualified presidential candidate for the All People’s Congress (APC) Hassan Ayariga has suspended campaigning as presidential nominee for the 2016 December polls.

The move, according to him, is to pave way for the court to clear him of all the claims leveled against him by the Electoral Commission.

Mr. Ayariga, however, added he will only campaign for his parliamentary candidates across the country.

Addressing a press conference in Accra Thursday, Mr. Ayariga said: “I will not campaign for myself but I will continue to campaign for my parliamentary candidates until justice is delivered.

“I will not sit at home, neither will I sit in the office, I will go round the whole country to support my candidates to win the elections and their seats”.

Mr. Ayariga further appealed to the judges of the Supreme Court to look into the issue “very well” to avert chaos ahead of the December polls.

“I appeal to all the judges to look into the matter very well so that the EC does not plunge the country into chaos and discourage our voters, it’s not about me, but the rule of law which I believe in and I believe in multi-party democracy”.
