Entertainer turned politician John Dumelo has announced his plan to run again in the NDC’s (National Democratic Congress) Ayawaso West Wuogon primary.
On Sunday, February 26, 2023, the actor said in a message: “After an extensive consultation with my God, my family and our party faithfuls in Ayawaso West Wuogon! This’s the second coming.”
Prior to the 2020 general elections, the actor ran in the NDC primaries and won.
