The Founder and Leader of the All People’s Congress (APC), Mr. Hassan Ayariga says he will fight corruption if voted as the president of the Republic of Ghana in the December 2020 presidential elections.
Ayariga who was acclaimed as the flagbearer for the party on Monday, August 24, 2020, said his government will not buy cars for any of his ministers.
”Ghanaians are hungry but we prefer wasting money on toys like Landcruiser. My government will not buy cars for any minister, you’re paid a salary, use your salary to buy your cars, use your salary to educate your children”, he said.
Mr. Ayariga who left the People’s National Congress (PNC), which he represented at the polls in 2012 to form the APC ahead of the 2016 election, has been the party’s only flagbearer contestant.
This year, he was the only aspirant who picked up presidential nomination forms in the APC.
Mr Ayariga further said that his appointees will have their bank accounts periodically checked in order to curtail corruption in the country.
”I will check the accounts of my ministers periodically so that if they are buying huge cars and houses that their salary can’t afford, they will account to us,” he said.
He also said the party will create more job opportunities for the youth while cloth allowances will be given to young people who cannot afford them.
On health, Mr Ayariga said the party will build ultra-modern hospitals across the country and also invest in equipment for health facilities.
Mr Ayariga said there will be free delivery and free dialysis for Ghanaians who are in need of it. ”Building hospitals is not enough, we need to equip them. And we shall continue to give free dialysis to Ghanaians that need them. There will be free delivery and government will pay for every Ghanaian born in the country”, he stated.
