The leadership of the ruling National Democratic Congress (NDC) has been urged to "heal its wounds and restore the partys unity" or risk losing the 2012 polls.

The Party would need the active support and contribution of all the members particularly, the Founder, ex-President Jerry Rawlings, as they prepare for the electoral battle ahead.

Alhaji Sulemana Gado, a leading member of the NDC in Ashanti, suggested that as a first step all those, who have been discourteous to the former President, should apologize to him.

He warned that it could be politically suicidal for the Party if Mr Rawlings should choose not to be part of its re-election campaign.

Nobody should discount his enormous influence on voters. He is a treasured political asset and there could not be any mistake about this.

Alhaji Gado, who was speaking to the Ghana News Agency (GNA) in Kumasi, also underlined the need for the Government appointees to become more accessible to the Party.

They should do away with every trait of arrogance, be open and transparent to help win the support of the people.

He called on NDC loyalists not to be under any illusion that the upcoming general elections would be difficult and asked that they accepted to work hard and make the necessary sacrifices to secure victory.

Alhaji Gado praised Mr Paul Victor Obeng, Chairman of the National Development Commission (NDPC), Dr Ekow Spio-Garbrah, former Minister, and other high profile personalities who were on hand at the 30th anniversary lectures held in Accra to mark 30 years celebration of the 31st December Revolution.
