"They will say it's for vote" - John Dumelo turns down beer party invite

Actor and NDC Parliamentary Candidate for the Ayawaso West Wuogon constituency, John Dumelo has turned down a beer party invite.

The invite tweet read “@JohnDumelo1 the Beer party is happening inside your constituency, #You #Dey for us or” but the actor replied, “So that when I come and drink beer they will say it’s for votes”.

John Dumelo was criticised for taking part in a cleanup exercise at Abelemkpe, according to his critics he was doing that for political capital.

But the actor responded that his act of participating in the exercise is nothing new as he has been part of such activities before becoming the PC for NDC.

“I was invited to come help clean the gutter, would I say no? When I saw those comments I was shocked. I did cleaning in other places in the past, like Ho, Axim and Tamale, was I looking for votes there too,” he wondered.

“I’ve always had the desire to serve people and my nation and that is why I’m trying to get into Parliament. I know Ayawaso West is difficult seat to get but I’ll still try my best. I run a clean campaign at all times. I don’t go around saying negative things about my opponents”.
