Sympathisers at the just ended All People's Congress (APC) delegates congress outnumbered the actual delegates who elected Mr. Hassan Ayariga as flagbearer.

Mr Ayariga was elected as the APC's flagbearer at a ceremony at the International Conference Centre in Accra but reports suggest the APC 'hired' most of the delegates.

According to Starr FM's Kobby Gomez Mensah, many of the supposed delegates appeared as though they were merely given party t-shirts to show up, without really knowing anything about the party.

Graphic Online also reported to have spotted minors parading as delegates at the congress.

Mr. Ayariga who led the PNC in the 2012 elections formed the APC after he failed to clinch the flagbearership slot for the party for the 2016 polls. He lost the slot to veteran and former flagbearer, Dr. Edward Mahama.
