Delegates attending the ongoing National congress of the All Peoples Congress (APC) at the International Conference Centre in Accra were allegedly hired and bused to the congress grounds.

Most of the participants were reportedly conveyed to the venue from from Nima, Nungua and Teshie and were given tags as delegates.

The party which is founded by former Peoples National Convention Presidential Candidate, Hassan Ayariga is holding its congress to elect National Officers and a Flagbearer for the upcoming November elections.

Scores of people who have converged at the venue appears not to know anything about the party.  Several children are also witnessing the event.

No official of the party has so far been available to speak to the issue.

Almost all the political parties have sent representatives to the congress to give their solidarity messages but conspicuously absent are the ruling NDC and largest opposition NPP.

Minors have been spotted at the All People’s Congress’ ongoing delegates’ congress in Accra.

The congress is the maiden one for the APC to elect a flagbearer to lead the party into the November 7 polls.

Dr Hassan Ayariga, founder of the APC, is tipped to lead the party as flagbearer, being the sole contender for the position.

Class News’ reporter covering the event, Paa Kwesi Parker-Wilson, said some of the child-delegates were driven away by the police. Some, however, still lurked around the event, he added.

It is not clear if the APC hired the minors as delegates or if they gate-crashed the event.

Ghana’s laws bar minors from taking part in political activities.
