The member of parliament for North Tongu, Samuel Okudzeto Ablakwa has denied media reports claiming that some members of the National Democratic Congress visited former president Rawlings and urged him to return to the party.
According to him, the visit to the former president and founder of the party was as part of efforts by some NDC MPs to gain some insight into how to tackle the issues in the party and get it back to full form for a 2020 comeback, Topfmonline.com reported.
Last Thursday, led by the Minority Leader Haruna Iddrisu, a delegation of NDC MPs called on former president Rawlings, where among other things, a need for unity within the party for its future was discussed.
A report by the Daily Guide on Monday stated some members of the NDC had visit the former president at his residence to plead with him to return to the party.
However, Mr Ablakwa said the visit was one of many visits already paid to former president Mahama, Council of state, National Executive Committee and the Kwesi Botchway Committee.
