Politicians have a million and one tricks they use to get the people on their side to ensure they get the power they so desperately crave.
One of these tricks, perhaps the oldest in the book, is to pretend to be just like ‘one of us’; ie a common person.
Politician’s who use this trait come to be known as ‘men of the people’; unfortunately most of them turn out to fill only their pockets once they get power.
Actor John Dumelo, who’s running for Member of Parliament in Ayawaso West Wuogon, is employing this tactic.
He shared some photos on social media today showing him with some residents of Abelemkpe cleaning out their gutters.
Dumelo has been in the public eye for decades at this point yet we’re now seeing him cleaning a gutter for the first time? Tells you everything you need to know.
Oko Vanderpuye did something similar during the last election and former President Rawlings is famous for this tactic.
If you’re a voter, don’t fall for it; if there was no election I can guarantee you this doesn’t happen.
