Disqualified presidential nominee of the All People’s Congress (APC) Hassan Ayariga has chided the Chairperson of the Electoral Commission Charlotte Osei, describing the EC boss as a liar.

According to the leader and founder of All People’s Congress, the EC boss has lied about his (Hassan Ayariga’s) qualification and threatened to expose the EC boss.

“I am a statesman, I contested election in this country and if she doesn’t know she should find out. I will call an international body to expose her for all that she is. She lied about people’s identity and their qualifications”

The Electoral Commission has reported Hassan Ayariga to the Criminal Investigations Department (CID) over alleged criminalities he is said to have committed. One of such criminalities has to do with a doctorate degree Hassan Ayariga stated on his presidential nomination form, as being obtained from Great Achievers University of Spain in 2014. But according to the Electoral Commission, checks have revealed that there is no such institution called Great Achievers University in Spain that awards PhD in political science, but rather there is Great Achievers International Theological Seminary which has nothing to do with political science.

He told Bright Kwesi Asempa the host of Onua Fm morning Show Yen Nsempa that “I have my degree from Great Achievers University, will I award myself a degree, who say I need a degree to become president. It was because there was not enough space of the form given me by EC that was why I shortened the name of the School, EC should have provided more space. How does that become my fault?”


Hassan Ayariga also described the chairperson of the Electoral Commission Charlotte Osei as inexperience, and should have been discipled by the former head of EC Kwadwo Afari-Gyan before her appointment.

“What was her performance at her former post the NCCE? If she had done a good job there, she would have known that I contested in the 2012 elections and also there would not be huge number of spoilt ballot papers.”

He reiterated that if the EC boss is as qualified as people think, she would not disqualify smaller parties and protect the bigger parties.

“Did she find out how many offices both CPP and the independent candidate Jacob Osei Yeboah have across the country, yet she shepherded them.”
