Former President Jerry John Rawlings has said he wished he could say he was taking over the National Democratic Congress (NDC) as being rumoured and claimed that he plans doing.
“I wish I could say yes, but I think it sounds better in my ear to say that I want God to come and lead us because of the integrity factor. God can be found in the truth,”he said when the Volta regional caucus of the party in parliament called on him at his office.
The founder of the NDC charged the Volta regional caucus to restore integrity within the NDC, which he said had suffered. It is time to free the truth, he said emphatically.
“What our supporters need is candour. If you want them to stay united, if you want them to be a little strong, all you can offer them now is candour. Don’t engage in political talk of the past”, he advised.
The former president said the misuse of executive power by some people had, with time, led to the detachment of the party from the people, stating the intoxicating effects of power had made many leaders of the party and government impervious to reality.
