Actor cum politician, John Dumelo, has stated that the governing New Patriotic Party (NPP) must be ready for stiff competition in the 2024 elections.
But the actor has vowed that he will put in double the efforts which will earn him an outright victory in 2024.
John Dumelo, who is also in the contest with colleague actor Fred Nuamah for the NDC Ayawaso West Wuogon parliamentary candidature, has said his one-time best friend will lose the primaries.
According to Dumelo, his confidence stems from the clamour by people in the constituency for him to come back to continue his good work after he lost to the incumbent MP, Lydia Alhassan.
“At this point in time, we want unity, at this point in time, we want to win the Ayawaso West Wuogon seat. And at this point in time, I’m confident that even if elections were held in Ayawaso Wuogon in terms of the parliamentary, I mean I will win hands down.”
He added, “2020, we came close. Some people say we won it but it was stolen. 2024 is not about coming close. We are definitely winning this seat and that is what everybody else is saying. We’re going to be extra vigilant. I definitely know and I’m confident that in 2024, I will win the seat for NDC in Ayawaso West Wuogon.”
On how he would grab the seat for the NDC, Dumelo noted that he has put preparations in place to compete “boot-for-boot” with the NPP candidate, adding that he and his team had fixed the irregularities that had caused him to lose.
