Touted as Ghana's most eligible bachelor, John Dumelo has reportedly been nursing a political ambition as most people deduce from his open support and campaign for the National Democratic Congress and incumbent President John Dramani Mahama.
Dumelo has taken his support for the NDC up a notch, saying that unlike the NPP, his party [NDC] was a non-violent one that would not resort to bathing members with acid.
His new declaration comes after the wife of the late NPP Upper East Regional Chairman Adams Mahama, testified against Gregory Afoko, the prime suspect in the murder of Mr. Mahama. Adams Mahama died in 2015 after a party member allegedly poured acid on him.
Gregory Afoko is a brother to the suspended National Chairman of the NPP, Paul Afoko.
John Dumelo was speaking to a group of NDC faithful in Wa when he threw the insinuations at the opposition party.
“Some people are violent, they will chase you with sticks, and they will pour acid on you. But remember that you belong to a good party,” John said in response to cheers of NDC slogans from the crowd.
In effect, John Dumelo was calling for NDC party members in the area to be proud because they had joined a good party, where they won’t be bathed with acid over dissenting views.
He further stated that “I am proud to be an NDC person and I know each and every one of you is proud. One day, each and every one of you will be blessed with so many things. So basically, this is my second time in Wa, the first time I was here was in 2009. The next time when I am coming, I am going to bring the other actors who are my friends to come and interact with everybody,” John promised.
