President Rawlings has been on a verbal tirade with some members of the NDC including its leaders over what he describes as negligence on their part which has led to the party to lose power.

Mr Rawlings indicated that he would have focused his energy at the “Central Region against our own candidate called Hanna Tetteh,” if he had the energy to involve himself in campaign activities before the 2016 polls.
