The parliamentary candidate for the Ayawaso West Wuogon constituency, on the ticket of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), John Dumelo, believes he will win the seat with a 54% vote margin.
Dumelo has expressed confidence in the fact that despite the constituency being a stronghold of the NPP since 2000, it is no more a safe seat for them.
Speaking on Citi TV‘s Face to Face program, Dumelo dismissed suggestions made by people who believed that the seat is traditionally an NPP seat.

“I disagree with people saying that it [Ayawaso West Wuogon] is traditionally NPP. We won in 1992 and 1996 but we have come close to winning it, especially in 2012. In 2004 and 2008 we came close to winning it,” he said.
According to him, unlike the Bantama, Mampong or the Ejisu seats, the Ayawaso West Wuogon is a seat the NDC is going to win come December 2020.
He argued that the constituency has retrogressed in the past few years hence the need for a leader who genuinely has the needs of constituents at heart.

John Dumelo seems to be doing a lot for the people in the Ayawaso West Wuogon constituency which could possibly gain him the much-needed popularity he needs.

According to him, the Ayawaso West Assembly ordered him to stop dredging the drains which had been engulfed with sand and roots.
In an interview on 3FM, on the issue of the dredging, Dumelo said his opponent, Lydia Seyram Alhassan, has lost the elections in advance even if she decides to construct gold roads.
