Former president Jerry Rawlings on Saturday jokingly indicated that Johnson Asiedu Nketia is not handsome enough to serve as flagbearer of the National Democratic Congress (NDC).

“...it is a pity he is ugly [Rawlings bursts into laughter with the crowd].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,” he said in Twi.

Mr Rawlings used the opportunity to call on the party to always uphold the principles of truth and integrity in all their endeavours.

"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.
