APC Congress: Ayariga rubbishes claims of minors as delegate
Flagbearer of the All People’s Congress(APC), Hassan Ayariga has discounted claims that he brought minors to fill his congress grounds after running short of the expected number of delegates billed for yesterday’s National Delegates Congress at the Accra International Conference Centre.
The newly formed APC party held its national delegates congress at the Accra International Conference Centre on Monday and among the delegates were people suspected to be minors.
They were seen wearing delegate tags, which many say was a poor spectacle condemning Ayariga for what has been described as a “kids affair” congress.But Ayariga interacting with Fiifi Banson on Anopa Kasapa on Kasapa 102.5 FM said it will be absurd for any person in his/her right frame of mind to assume that the APC will engage minors to an important occasion like its national congress, criticizing the Daily Guide newspaper as trading in cheap journalism.
“The APC is very serious party,” he noted, adding that “Even if I come to the streets and I want thousand people to come, it’s very easy for me to get them, even if I don’t have members I will not bring children. We don’t want the negative propaganda and politics”
“I went to the congress grounds with my children and my children were beside me because they are on mid-term and most people came with their children because they can’t leave their children home,” the APC leader said. By-kasapafmonline.com
