Second Deputy Speaker of Parliament, Alban S.K. Bagbin, has conceded defeat to Mr John Dramani Mahama.
He has indicates that he does not hate the former president as speculated by some individuals.
His attacks he said were meant to improve the NDC as a party.
“We are politicians and you have to be in this game for some time to know that anything is possible. Particularly in African because there is so much uncertainty.
“And so, as you go round trying to show who is a better candidate you will definitely disagree with the other contestant… Anytime you disagree, people say you are a critic and sometimes they even say that it is an attack on the person but that is what democracy is about. That is what competition is about.
“But, at the end of the day he knows me very well and he has worked with me for a long time and he knows I don’t harbour ill-will or hatred and so he knew that what I only criticised to improve. So, he was quite receptive, we had a good chat and we know that with that culture we could do more for the party and this country”.
