According to the group, all the attacks on Rawlings were calculated at covering up the truth within the party.

The NDC has been bedeviled with lots of controversy following its unexpected loss to the New Patriotic Party (NPP) in the 2016 elections.

There were accusations and counter accusations among both the grassroots and the top hierarchy of the party as to who should take the blame for the party’s defeat.

The latest turmoil has been rekindled by former Deputy Chief of Staff, Valerie Sawyerr in her article published couple of days ago attacking ‘Founder’, former President Rawlings and Former Attorney General, Martin Amidu for constantly criticizing the NDC in public even when it was in power.

But the group said events of the recent past have caused some party members to question whether the NDC of today is the same old NDC.

At a press conference addressed by Selorm Hamenoo at Agbozume in the Ketu South District in the Volta region, he said the "NDC has trumpeted over the years for a country devoid of corruption. You will also easily recall the passion with which our founder has fought corruption all his life.

"Unfortunately however, the word "corruption" seems to have become a taboo word within certain circles of the NDC, especially if it comes from the lips of His Excellency former President Rawlings."

"Insulting one of our illustrious sons of the land, Flt. Lt. J J Rawlings, through whose instrumentality we are credited highly on the continent and the world, will result in nothing but a deep seated fracture of our party.

"We want to put it in a simple language, 'No Rawlings, No NDC!!! He's the moving spirit and energy of the party. Check it up," he added.
