Founder and leader of the All People’s Congress (APC), Dr Hassan Ayariga has said that he is very optimistic that his nomination to contest as the presidential candidate for the All People’s Congress (APC) in the 2020 general elections will be approved by the Electoral Commission.
According to him, his disqualification in 2016 by the then EC chair, Charlotte Osei was a deliberate attempt to bring him down.
Hassan Ayariga was one of 13 candidates disqualified from contesting in the 2016 presidential election.
Mr Ayariga’s disqualification was over failure to sort out some information regarding his nomination forms ahead of the election.
However, the APC presidential candidate says he is coming with full force to contest in the upcoming presidential elections come 2020.
He, however, added that he is confident and hopeful that he won’t be disqualified under the new electoral commission team.
Hassan Ayariga adds that, he seeks to contest the upcoming elections due to the failure of the Akufo-Addo-led government and the recent hardship in the lives of Ghanaians.
