Kennedy Ohene Agyapong, one of the presidential hopefuls of the ruling New Patriotic Party (NPP), gracefully accepted defeat after the declaration of the party's presidential election results.
In a fiercely contested presidential poll, the Assin Central Member of Parliament gave Vice-President Dr Mahamudu Bawumia a "showdown."
He polled 37.41 per cent to clinch the second position, bowing to the victory of Dr Bawumia, who garnered 61.47 per cent.
The lawmaker congratulated the party's election committee for organising a free and fair presidential primary.
"This is the only thing I've been preaching, and I must admit this election is fair, and my grassroots have spoken; therefore, I accept the results in good faith," Agyapong said after the results were declared.
He pledged his support to the flagbearer-elect to help defeat the National Democratic Congress (NDC) and retain power in the 2024 general election.
