RELEASED; I have not endorsed any candidate – Rawlings
Former President Rawlings has denied endorsing the candidature of any personalities vying for roles in the National Democratic Congress (NDC) as party flagbearer or national executive officers.
A statement issued by the former President’s office stressed that he has not endorsed any individual or group vying for roles in the party.

The statement further advised the media to crosscheck information about the former President [Rawlings] before publication in order to avoid the dissemination of false and propaganda related material, especially during the campaign for national office holders in the NDC.
