New Patriotic Party(NPP)’s Lydia Alhassan has won with 39,851 votes with John Dumelo of the National Democratic Congress(NDC) pulling 37,778 votes.
The trolling is still on-going with others offering their heartfelt congratulations to the actor cum politician.
Filmmaker Leila Djansi is the latest. She congratulated John, advising him to go do his homework and come fully prepared in the coming years.
“Elections conducted on bribery SHOULD always end in a loss. #GhanaDecides. BUT, my Jonivi did so well that, it will keep the MP on her toes to Work for the people. Congratulations @johndumelo1 in your industry; FILM. Let us see your history of serving. There’s so much to be fixed in Ghana Film Industry. Please lead that fight and then, you come back trained and ready.“
She advised that bribes cannot win anyone an election.
“Guys, If you desire politics in your future, start NOW where ever you are. Cultivate a habit of serving and leading initiatives. Don’t wake up one morning and start bribing, braiding, pounding, and bonding cos you want votes. That’s disrespectful to the people. Start now! Brighten the corner where you are. Politicians need to stop taking voters for granted. You can’t bribe folks with laptops and when you win, your kid goes to Harvard and the voter’s kids struggle for desks and jobs.“
