Candidate Augustus “Goosie” Tanoh has expressed disappointment following his abysmal performance in the contest that saw former President John Dramani Mahama win by a landslide.
His campaign coordinator, Kyeretwie speaking to the media at the party’s headquarters said: “The results we’ve seen so far would suggest that we have lost. You go into a competition with the object of winning. It is not the outcome that we are looking for.”
He said the campaign team will support Mr. Mahama to recapture power for the NDC come 2020.
