Former National Chairman of the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) Dr. Kwabena Adjei has revealed why the party lost to the New Patriotic Party (NPP) in the December 7 elections.

He said he was not surprised at the outcome of the 2016 presidential polls.

According to him, the party lost the elections after delegates failed to give him the mandate for another term as national chairman of the party.

Supporters have accused some party officials of amassing wealth and doing very little to help the fortune of the party in the elections.

Speaking on Accra-based Starr FM, Kwabena Adjei blamed the delegates for the defeat of the party.

"I wasn’t surprised [the NDC lost]…because when they [delegates] voted me out in Kumasi they voted the party out. It was a done deal [that the NPP will win]. I am not superstitious but I came to the party with my own style…and I had a way of relating to the people."

"Nobody involved me in the campaign, I involved myself…no I wasn’t invited…I tried to get access to the President and I didn’t get access, when I noticed things were going wrong, I tried and tried and tried but I didn’t get access so I mobilized myself…and did what I could do," the former chairman added.

Meanwhile, former National Organiser of the NDC, Yaw Boateng Gyan has noted that the party suffered an excruciating defeat to the NPP in the  2016 elections because supporters of the party have been seething with anger and pointing accusing fingers at party hierarchy for the party's predicament.

He said "The other issue has to do with the way and manner our people were talking to the electorate…very arrogant and disrespectful, how would we have appealed to the voters."
