Actor, entrepreneur and politician, John Settor Dumelo, has made an official statement following his loss in the 2020 Ayawaso West Wuogon Parliamentary election.
The National Democratic Congress parliamentary hopeful took to his Facebook page to recount his many defeats in life and how he rose to the occasion by bouncing back stronger.
He went on to thank the over 37,000 constituents of Ayawaso West Wuogon who expressed confidence in him by voting for him.
Dumelo subtly conceded defeat to his opponent who contested on the ticket of the New Patriotic Party (NPP), Madam Lydia Seyram Alhassan who was declared winner of the parliamentary election.
He however added that even though he was not happy with the outcome of the election, he was going to put the country first and allow things to be the way they are.
The actor revealed that he was ready to help the MP-elect make Awayawso West Wuogon one of the best constituencies in the country.
He jokingly said he had bought new wellington boots for the incumbent MP who retained the seat for the NPP in the ruling party's stronghold.
Excerpts of his post read: "To Lydia, many said it was impossible for me to even dream of winning but the numbers I pulled in and you winning by a very small margin, especially in such a stronghold of the NPP makes me extremely proud of the whole campaign.
I may not be satisfied with the final results or the irregularities that occurred,but before everything else I am Ghanaian and I will always put the people first“Ut omnes onum sint”.
So I’m ready to help to make this constituency the greatest. (I have new wellinton boots for you too) Mega tsi dzi o"
