Ghanaian actor John Dumelo has announced his bid to contest as a parliamentary candidate for Ayawaso West Wuogon in his country.
Concise news reports that Dumelo made the announcement in a post on his Instagram page today, Friday, July 19.
He wrote, “It’s time for Ayawaso West Wuogon….it’s time to listen and serve the interest of the people. It’s time for change….I John Dumelo, humbly ask you to support me on this journey. God bless you and God bless Ghana.
Recently, he expressed joy with the decision by Ghana’s parliament to shelve the idea of constructing a new 450-seat chamber.
Ghanaians, including some lawmakers especially from the Minority side, strongly kicked against the $200-million and described the move as needless.
After a series of consultations, Parliament, in a statement released on Monday, 8 July 2019, said: “The board, has, upon reviewing presentations made to it by well-meaning Ghanaians, has accordingly, taken the development out of its present agenda.”
Reacting to Parliament’s U-turn on the matter, Mr Dumelo tweeted: “I’m glad parliament has finally decided to drop the chamber. Well done to the millions of voices out there who fought for this. Together, let us make Ghana a better place.”
