“If you retreat from a battle it does not mean defeat, we will return in 2020”, Johnson Asiedu Nketia said.
His comment confirms the expectation that the opposition leader will be declared the winner of the December 7 and 8 presidential poll after two failed attempts.
Johnson Asiedu Nketia said the party went into the elections to seek the mandate of Ghanaians to govern but if they have decided to choose a different party, the NDC accepts it.
He said the party would regroup and strategise to win the next election.
President John Mahama has done the unprecedented by conceding defeat to the opposition leader, Nana Akufo-Addo, after a keenly contested presidential election, even before the official declaration.
