How to use concede in a sentence?

  1. Top Egyptian businessman Naguib Sawiris:

  2. Fabien Galthie:

    The players honoured the France shirt. It’s a defeat, we must admit it. We concede the defeat but it’s also frustrating, the game was lost on details but also on( refereeing) decisions, it’s very frustrating.

  3. Stacey Abrams:

    So let's be clear -- this is not a speech of concession, because concession means to acknowledge an action is right, true or proper, as a woman of conscience and faith, I can not concede that. But, my assessment is the law currently allows no further viable remedy. Now, I can certainly bring a new case to keep this one contest alive, but I don't want to hold public office if I need to scheme my way into the post. Because the title of governor isn't nearly as important as our shared title -- voters. And that is why we fight on.

  4. John Kennedy:

    I'm not prepared to concede that.

  5. Clifford Villalon:

    People do not comply because they do not accede. But when they know they will succeed, that is the time they will concede.
