Flag bearer of the All Peoples Congress (APC), Hassan Ayariga, has said corruption in Ghana can only be stopped when perpetrators are sent to hell.
According to him, activities of corruption have become unbearable such that the country needs a different set of leadership in government aside the National Democratic Congress (NDC) and the New Patriotic Party (NPP).
He made these comments in an interaction on A1 Radio’s Day Break Upper East program.
Outlining his strategies for fighting the menace in Ghana, Mr. Ayariga said among other things that “When l become President, some people will go to hell for the country to become paradise.”
To further buttress his point, the APC leader reiterated an earlier statement attributed to him; where he reportedly said he will leave his comfortable home and sleep in police cell on the first night of his election as president.
This according to him will signal Ghanaians and particularly his appointees that none of them is above the law and that he will not condone any acts of corruption as president.
“The day I will become president people will run out of this country. Anybody who is found to be corrupt under the leadership of Hassan Ayariga, no fear; no favor. I will separate you from your wife, I will separate you from your husband; you won’t see your family again.”
“Corruption is killing us in this country. It is making my children and your children not to get the best out of this nation.” He told show host Samuel Mbura.
Mr. Ayariga who left the People’s National Congress (PNC), which he represented in the 2012 general elections to form APC, lamented that activities of corruption have made Ghana’s economy to become what he described as a banana economy.
The Flag bearer from today Thursday, will embark on his campaign tour of the Upper East Region; starting from Bawku and its surrounding communities.
