Mr. Dumelo launched his campaign at the Bawaleshie School Park on Sunday, October 18, 2020 and he introduced his beautiful spouse Mrs. Gifty Dumelo on stage to present her to his supporters and also to explicit his appreciation to her for being by his side and assisting him.
“This is my wife and she has been very supportive. All of you have also been very supportive. If we will win the seat, it is majority of the women here that will make us win this seat”, John stated, as wife who was dressed in party colors was seen blushing and cheering him on.
Speaking at the launch, the actor made numerous promises on the campaign stage. Prominent among the guarantees is his promise to surrender half of his income as Member of Parliament (MP) to the Constituency if he wins.
“When I enter Parliament, I’d give half of my salary to Ayawaso West Wuogon,” he stressed.
“The first thing I’ll do with that 50% [of my salary] is to establish a football team in Ayawaso West Wuogon,” he pointed out.
He stated the Constituency is fed up with many gala competitions.
“It’s time to create the West Wuogon Football Club so that the footballers here can also get the opportunity to play in the [Ghana] Premier League and also go abroad.”
Amidst the dignitaries who graced the launch was National Communications Officer of the NDC, Sammy Gyamfi, who offered support for the party’s candidate in opposition to incumbent Lydia Alhassan.
