Dr. Mahama, speaking in an interview with Joy News, blamed his lackluster performance in last week's presidential election on his initial disqualifications by the Electoral Commission due to errors he made on his presidential nomination paperwork.
He further stated that his campaign was unable to come back even the Electoral Commission finally reinstated him.
He said: "With regards to my personal situation, when I talked about the inequality of the playing field at the beginning of the elections I wasn't making an excuse," and, "The disqualification took six weeks away from my campaign and also the disqualification made it impossible for me to raise money, also while I was respecting the EC and the judiciary by not campaigning I lost time."
The PNC flag-bearer went on to point out that where his pastor had voted - the polling station - he had not been able to garner any vote. He said he believed that the "spoilt ballots" contained many of his votes.
"I on my part, where my pastor voted I got zero in this election, I am sure those so-called spoilt ballots, a lot of it will have my votes there".
