National Democratic Congress (NDC) parliamentary aspirant for Ayawaso West Wuogon Constituency, John Dumelo is confident of winning the party’s parliamentary primaries.

Speaking to Citi News‘ Marie-Franz Fordjoe, Mr. Dumelo said he has convinced enough delegates to vote for him in the primaries.

“I think I have been able to convince people. At the end of the day, they are voting for me because they want me to transform their lives.”

Mr. Dumelo seeks to focus on job security and sanitation if elected as the party’s parliamentary candidate.

The Actor is competing with Suzzy Afua Adoboe for the seat.

Dumelo had earlier come forward to contest the NDC primaries for the constituency when that seat became vacant following the death of the incumbent New Patriotic Party (NPP) MP, Emmanuel Kyeremanteng Agyarko in November 2018.

He, however, withdrew before the main contest.

A pharmacist, Delali Brempong won the primaries at the party level but lost to the widow of the late MP, Lydia Alhassan who contested on the ticket of the NPP in the controversial polls.

‘Dumelo is no threat’

Meanwhile Afua Adoboe has said the presence of John Dumelo, a popular actor, in the race poses no threat to her chances in the primaries.

According to her, although Mr. Dumelo is a public figure with quite a huge following and appeal, she better understands the issues of the constituency and the party’s grassroots better, after going through various stages of serving the party in the constituency.

Madam Adoboe who was on Point Blank on Eyewitness News on Thursday stressed that she was a better choice for the party in the constituency.

“He [John Dumelo] has an appealing figure, that is okay, but I don’t think I am doing bad when it comes to appeal. Because of what he does, a lot of people seem to know him better than me but I have done a lot of grassroots politics and the work that we intend to do in the constituency, we need somebody with understanding of the grassroots, of our people, who are like the base of the party,” she said.
