Former President John Jerry Rawlings has urged members of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) to focus on being truthful, saying that the party needed candor more then anything else right now.
According to Ghana's former head of state and founder of the National Democratic Congress political party, integrity has been "held hostage" and it is high time that members and supporters alike took an introspective look and became more candid and truthful.
Former president Rawlings was speaking to a charged NDC Volta regional caucus in parliament to restore integrity with the party's ranks, something he said had suffered in recent times.

“It has been ambushed and held hostage. The time has come to free the truth,” the ex-military leader told the caucus when they called on him at his office.
President Rawlings additionally called for sincerity in speech, thought, and action as the party probes its loss. “The time to free the truth is now,” he said.
“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.”
