At a rally to mark the NDC's 25th year anniversary at Ashaiman in the Greater Accra Region on Saturday, Rawlings said it was a pity that the NDC general secretary was ugly, otherwise the party would have made him flagbearer in 2020.

“...it is a pity he [ Asiedu Nketia ] is ugly...If he were handsome, we would put him on a horse to go and help. Considering how light he is like air, the horse will run faster,” Rawlings said, drawing laughter from the crowd.

Rawlings went on to call for the party to uphold the principles of truth and integrity.

"I'm beginning to hear about unity, unity, unity in the air. It's a beautiful sound and I like it very much. But unity comes at a price... and it's not asking for plenty of money. It's only asking for truthfulness, integrity, [and] sincerity," he said.
