Mr. Ackon went on to say that he did not believe the New Patriotic Party won last week's elections, but rather that the NDC lost it.
“NPP did not win the elections, NDC lost. Just tabulate from 2012 and look at the votes in terms of percentage…go to NDC areas and look at what actually happened. So NDC lost, NPP did not win.
“So re-organizing and coming back in the next four years is the simplest thing to do, provided we stay united,” he added.
