Ghanaian actor turned politician-John Dumelo studied Civil Engineering at the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology for his first degree but he has made a complete departure from this and has now enrolled at GIMPA’s School of Public Service and Governance, multiple student sources have told GhanaCelebrities.Com.
John Dumelo who is leading the 2016 NDC’s celebrity campaign race has for some years expressed interest in politics and it seems he does not intend to remain a foot soldier, travelling to the hinterlands for NDC’s flagship door to door campaign. He’s intending to soon take up a public office or one is already lined up for him–a good reason why he has started a degree focusing on “Public Service and Governance.”
A female source who has been sitting in the same class with John Dumelo at GIMPA told GhanaCelebrities.Com that, “it was shocking at first to have him sit close to me and taking the same class with me. He’s funny and even made an E-mail joke which got him  saying ‘JM Joaso’ in class.”
Another source said: “He came to class the last time in trainers and shabbily dressed–I was expecting more from a celebrity like him.”
The “GIMPA School of Public Service and Governance aims to become the preferred provider of Human Resource Development programmes to line Ministries, Departments, Statutory, Private Sector and other agencies,” according to the school’s website.
The school offers courses leading to “the award of Certificate, Diploma and Degrees in the field of Leadership, Management and Public Administration as a necessary requirement for maintaining the vitality of organizations in the development of the economy.”
As to why John Dumelo has swiftly returned to the classroom and how he’s going to maintain his classroom and campaign appearances, only he can faithfully answer…

  1. He needs some kind of qualification to pursue any serious political post because he failed 5 papers in KNUST and could NOT graduate. He got into GIMPA through government connections. I know the administrators there. They said John’s consideration and selection was a special request from “above”. In Africa we all know what that means.

  2. You wait and see, if the party does not win in Dec, John will drop out. This GIMPA act is all about his suitability and packaging for a public office post in NDC. After running all this errands in bushes and things at least he has tried for the party. So now IF the party shd win and he has to be vetted he can boldly say he is studying at GIMPA and dodge the KNUST certificate fiasco.

  3. I think john is just trying way too hard…errand boy from bush to bush, going to almost every NDC rally or campaign ground, he even followed JM to London a few months back, recruiting any and everyone into NDC, now school by force lol. You John your head die pass fish, I went to KNUST with him so I know. He is street smart and even cryptic minded BUT he is not book smart so I wonder why his pushing himself in JM’s face with all this “joe impre” moves. JM has seen u ok, just relax.

    Sudden interest in ur qualification when the whole country now knows you hold NO certificate from KNUST yet u are seeking a ministerial position which requires vetting.

  5. I have a question – IF and that’s a big IF NDC shd win, can john be given a political appointment even if he has no certificate from KNUST and is just recently pursing studies at GIMPA?

    1. unless am mistaken, i think if the president nominates him and the vetting committee also find his answers adequate and pass him, he can become a minister or deputy. But lets not jump the gun. NDC has to win first Lol

  6. As for Dumelo now we can all see thru him like glass.
    Everything he does has an opportunistic advantage, from all the errand boy moves, V8, walking thru bushes, villages and forests, you name it….YE NIM WU FRI TITI

  7. Dumelo after all this hustling, I hope JM doesn’t give your expected post to someone else.Regardless of your errands for NDC, you have a very awful & stinking reputation when it comes to money matters so if I were JM, I will think hard before putting you in any appointment which requires contracts or financial judgement because you have no conscience when it comes to money. Your recent swindling case involving the police and the cheque plus the Anas case involving a BABY which you had no pity for but still swindled the mother is enough evidence that you are corruption material. If I were JM i will even call Anas and the recent lady to investigate and know your other side, not just the kissa$$ing side you always show JM.

  8. John gyimilo Cris why don’t you bring this idiot down cus we cannot let our country be taken by fools like this guy. John would mm same tw3.Kwak iii as guy. U failed many times in UST. is me delvin.

  9. CAUTION: Ladies in GIMPA (not just his class) please be on your guard seriously. John Dumelo is very good at removing ladies panties and doing things with his tiny mini sausage before you know it. So pls a word to the wise.

  10. As for Ghana it is really whom you know! For a fact I know that John failed more than 4 papers in KNUST, he did not re-write them so he has NO certificate. Meanwhile becos of political connections john is in a seat at GIMPA that someone genuinely qualified and applied for but has been denied so that dumelo will be pushed thru. SMH…..What a pity!
