Tension seems to be brewing in the All People's Congress (APC) following the endorsement of President John Mahama by the party's flagbearer, Hassan Ayariga, and Nana Akufo-Addo by the party's executives.

Angered by the decision of his executives to endorse Akufo-Addo of the New Patriotic Party, Dr Ayariga suspended Mr Emmanuel Carl Bartels (Vice Chairman)  and Mr Razak Kojo Opoku (General Secretary) from the party.

Ayariga said the suspension was due to "indiscipline and gross disrespect to National Executive committee, and the general membership of APC nationwide" by the two executives.

"Dr Hassan Ayariga and the National Executive Committee  wish to inform  all APC members nationwide  and the general  public  to refrain  from dealing  with these two suspended individuals with matters  concerning the party  till further  notice," said in a statement to Pulse.com.gh.

The suspension of Mr Opoku and Bartels followed claims by the embattled party officials that APC is endorsing Nana Akufo-Addo.

However, Hassan Ayariga, on Monday, November 28, 2016, endorsed the candidature of President John Mahama ahead of the 7 December polls.

He told journalists at a press conference that he was supporting the president and the governing NDC to finish the good works they have begun in their first term.
