In an interview with Accra-based Class FM, Ayariga said, "After a week to election, you go and sell your party for GHC 15,000. Are you kidding me? Look at the millions of dollars I have spent and you go and negotiate with NPP and take GHC 15,000 to sell APC and Ayariga...

"The party is not taking anything from any political party to endorse their leader. The party wants power sharing and that is all the party is asking for so that if you win power some APC members can become Ministers, Deputy Ministers, DCEs, so that we can build and develop our nation. This is what APC is looking for. We have money. What are we using money for?," he stated.
