National Democratic Congress (NDC) Members of Parliament (MP) have paid a visit to the party's founder, former president Jerry John Rawlings, and beseeched him to lead the party towards the next general elections in December 2020.
Led by Minority Leader, Hon. Haruna Iddrisu, the group of NDC parliamentarians visited ex-president Rawling's home where they called for the party to form a united front under the former statesman's leadership.
"The party suffered defeat as a government into opposition following the 2016 presidential and parliamentary elections, but that is not the end of it... We trust that if you guide us and lead us well and the party goes through a proper process of reorganization to strengthen its grassroots…we will not be in opposition."

In what could be interpreted as an attempt to bury the hatchet in light of common goals, the MPs asked the party's founder to take up the reigns of leadership saying, "we want to work with you …We want to act strong under your leadership and guidance for us to have a united front of the NDC irrespective regardless of our personal differences.”
The Tamale South legislator also touched on the issue of members venting their frustrations at the expense of the party's outward image, saying that a member's expression ought not to come at the expense of the party's chances in the 2020 parliamentary and presidential elections.
According to Hon. Iddrisu, the party as a whole needs to own up for both past mistakes and ready itself for the future.
