"The vehicle you asking Ghanaians to hand over to you is not a toy to play with" - Hassan Ayariga to Bawumia

The Founder and Leader of the All People’s Congress (APC) Party, Dr. Hassan Ayariga, has issued a strong critique of Vice President Dr. Mamudu Bawumia, the New Patriotic Party (NPP) Presidential Candidate.

At a recent press conference addressing the ongoing economic hardships in Ghana, Dr. Ayariga urged Dr. Bawumia to cease his appeals for Ghanaians to entrust him with leadership, stating that "the vehicle is not a toy to play with."

Dr. Ayariga highlighted that the current administration, led by President Nana Akufo-Addo and Vice President Bawumia, has veered off course, causing a loss of credibility due to ineffective policies, deceit, and propaganda.

"Your only option left is vote buying," Ayariga remarked.

He drew attention to the dramatic devaluation of the Ghanaian cedi, questioning the rationale behind Dr. Bawumia’s presidential aspirations.

“If former President Mahama had to go because of GHC 4.00 to $1.00, then why is Vice President Dr. Mamudu Bawumia running for President at GHC 16.00 to $1.00?” Ayariga asked.

He emphasized that "the suffering is real and escalating," and advised Dr. Bawumia to abandon his slogan, "It is Possible," as Ghanaians no longer trust him.

Dr. Ayariga outlined the APC’s vision to transform Ghana into a prosperous and developed nation, emphasizing policies aimed at economic independence and self-reliance.

Key proposals include an Economic Lockdown to prevent capital flight, the establishment of a National Database for informed decision-making, and a National Development Plan to guide sustainable growth.

Additionally, Ayariga pledged to prioritize Ghanaian interests through a "Ghanaian First" policy, promote local industries, and create job opportunities.

He also proposed a mindset shift towards entrepreneurship, making Ghana a hub for production and manufacturing, and implementing a 24-hour economy to boost productivity.

The APC leader further committed to enhancing governance through technology with an E-Governance policy and reducing reliance on foreign aid to strengthen the economy.

Dr. Ayariga assured that under his leadership, Ghana would see significant reforms aimed at ensuring a brighter future for all citizens.
