The flag bearer of the opposition All Peoples Congress (APC), Hassan Ayariga, has said he has a strategy in mind to wade off his appointees from engaging in corrupt practices when he becomes President of the Republic of Ghana.
That strategy, he noted, is to spend a first night of his presidency in a police cell.
This, he believes, will send a very strong signal to all his appointees that he will spare no one if foud guilty of engaging in corrupt practices.
“…Under Hassan Ayariga, the first thing I want to assure that when I become President the first day I’m going to sleep in the prison. The first day I become President that day I will not sleep in my house. I’m going to go to the police station and ask them to open the door I want to sleep in there because that is going to be the signal that if the President himself can sleep in the cell whoever is corrupt no favour no fear will sleep there,” he told Joy FM in an interview.
The 2012 People’s National Convention (PNC) Presidential candidate was acclaimed as the flag bearer of the APC for the second time on Monday, August 24, 2020.
He was the only aspirant who picked up presidential nomination forms in the APC.
