Actor turned Politician, John Dumelo has successfully filed his nomination to contest the Ayawaso West Wuogon parliamentary seat on the ticket of the National Democratic Congress party.
In a post on Facebook, he informed fans that he picked up the forms yesterday 7th October 2020 at the EC’s office at East Legon, Accra.
In his words:
“I successfully filed my nomination to contest the Ayawaso West Wuogon parliamentary seat yesterday at the District EC office in East legon. This marks the beginning of change the men and women of AWW seek. God is with us. #idey4u #wemove #timenodey
John Dumelo is facing stiff competition from the current MP of his constituency, Lydia Alhassan.
The governing NPP has written him off and is hopeful of retaining the seat with their candidate Lydia Seyram Alhassan who became an MP through a by-election.
Speaking on GhOne TV’s expressions, the Communications Director for Ghana Gas said John Dumelo has still not appreciated the seriousness in politics.
“His way of thinking is like he’s thinking like a movie star in a movie which is not real. He’s living in a different world.”
“When it comes to the real politics on the ground he’s using his movie lifestyle to come into politics and that is totally…movies is a lot of fiction you know that. Real things are happening on the ground.”
