Parliamentary candidate for Ayawaso West Wuogon, John Dumelo says he will do everything possible to ensure Ghana’s Rent Control Act is enforced if he gets into Parliament.
According to the National Democratic Congress (NDC) parliamentary candidate, one of the difficulties facing the youth is coughing out money to pay two years' rent.
In a tweet on Monday, August 17, 2020, Dumelo said the youth cannot survive if they have to pay two years' rent upfront.

YEN.com.gh earlier reported that former President John Dramani Mahama has urged the Akufo-Addo administration to focus on creating jobs to put money into the pockets of Ghanaians instead of the approach of providing freebies.
According to him, the current New Patriotic Party (NPP) government’s incessant desire to give freebies to citizens is a sign that they have failed in investing in the real sectors which could lead to job creation.
John Mahama opined that the government must assure the people of jobs. "... if people are working and getting money what would they need free for if they can afford to pay."
