Actor John Dumelo recently picked up forms to contest for parliament in the Ayawaso West Wuogon constituency on the ticket of the NDC.
Considering the NDC has always been the party he loves and the party which allegedly blessed him with a V8, there’s no question that was the party whose ticket he was going to contest on.
However, filmmaker and actress Leila Djansi has expressed surprise at John’s choice and said she cannot support him if he goes with the NDC.
In a post on Facebook after news of his run came out, she listed some of the NDC’s more corrupt deals and said she cannot support him on their ticket.
She wrote: “I love my brother John, but this is a no no for me. Unless he changes his associates; the bus branding people, high level corruption dealmakers, and does something for the ordinary citizen with all the power he already has, I’m not sure I can fully back this. Not yet.”
John, meanwhile, is in full swing with his campaign, already trying to sweet talk Ghanaians to give him the opportunity to join the ‘chop chop’.
