Ghanaian actor turned politician John Dumelo is positive that the coming parliamentary election would go in his favour as he is relatable to the youth who forms the majority of the electorates.
In an interview on Adom FM, Ayawaso West Wuogon parliamentary candidate, John Dumelo noted that he has won the support of students of the University of Ghana, GIMPA and UPSA for introducing scholarship schemes for them.
According to him, he is also using social media in his best of interest so he is positive about winning the election.
“Social media is important to me and I know that not all of them are voters in the constituency but I understand it and I am using it positively because non-constituents can influence their friends through what they see and read,” he bragged.
“Our kind of politics in Ghana is not very different from politics outside, and for me I am used to fake stories in the media and have grown a tough skin so when something comes, I keep quiet since the more you talk, the more people create loopholes in your story,” he said.
“What they mainly want is how I can help them personally, and that’s why I started the scholarship scheme in 2013 not only in Legon but GIMPA, UPSA and they are all saying they are behind me and will voting for me”
John Dumelo is contesting Mrs Lydia Alhassan for the Ayawaso West Wuogon Constituency which is said to be NPP’s strongholds.
