Samini fires at John Dumelo over new $200 million 450-seater Parliament

Dancehall artiste Samini on the morning of July 4, 2019, took to Twitter to challenge actor John Dumelo on supposed profligacy of government citing the actor was once a recipient of government largesse.

"Linda" and "Gyae Shi" hitmaker Samini, in the morning of July 4, 2019, challenged political activist and actor, John Dumelo, to come clear on how he (Dumelo) came to earn a car from the previous national government.

Dumelo, an avowed member of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), now an opposition party, was involved in a scandal in 2016 after it came to light that he had been gifted a Toyota vehicle by the state.

At the time, NDC's John Mahama was president and the suspicion of corruption was held by many.

Now, Dumelo is challenging the present New Patriotic Party (NPP) of Nana Akufo-Addo to suspend plans of building a new parliamentary chamber at the cost of $200 million.

But Samini was not going to let the matter go without questioning Dumelo.

He tweeted: "We Dey here wey one of us try to disguise national assets to become his own just because power was changing sides.this same individual has become rich overnight like we didn’t see how it started. How can you think Ghana youth will ever forgive and forget about this y3 kai papa."

Dumelo had earlier stated: "$200m can can build 10 factories to employ 10,000 youth. We the youth are pleading with parliament. Yes it’s necessary but pls don’t build that chamber now. #DropThatChamber"

But Samini was having none of it.
