Hassan Ayariga, Founder of All People’s Congress (APC) is alleging the Electoral Commission of Ghana is using the Commission as a business company to their own benefit by making money out of Ghana Democracy which is their appointed mandate to protect.

His rebuttal has been the results of the EC announcing the filling fees for political parties who wish to contest in the 2020 general elections on Monday 14 September, 2020. The EC headed by Madam Jane Adukwie Mensa as the Chair of the Commission placed presidential filling Fees at GHC 100,000 and that of Parlimentatry filling fees at GHC10000.

Mr. Hassan Ayariga says he think the EC is making money of Ghana’s democracy which they have been places as the primary custodians, and instead of protecting it, they are running it as their business compary, hence his accusations.
