It seems Ghanaian actor, businessman and philanthropist John Dumelo would have to lace his boots properly for the path he has chosen (openly declaring his support for the incumbent president of the Republic of Ghana, John Dramani Mahama).
With recent news of being described as a sell out by some members of the opposition party since it is alleged that he had “secretly” met with the party’s leader before declaring his stands for another, tension is already mounting up although he has denied secretly meeting Nana Akuffo Addo.
His response to the accusation however seems not to have gone down well with a sympathizer who John believes is a member of the NPP. In a tweet, the sympathizer openly cursed him on social networking site Twitter.
Check out John Dumelo’s response.
You are wishing me death because of Npp? Ive forgiven u 77 times. I pray to God forgive your sins. Go and sin nomore https://t.co/NAlvdeNnsR

Some of these things are quite expected especially when you want to meddle in politics. I mean, you don’t really know who to trust since each one is always on the look out to discredit whatever you do.
Days after the personal assistant to the leader of the opposition party in Ghana, Nana Akuffo Addo, Mr. Asenso-Danso in a lengthy note stated that John Dumelo has sold his conscience for selfish interests since he had complained bitterly that he was ‘disappointed in the President for supervising a corrupt and incompetent administration” and wanted to campaign for the NPP, John Dumelo has denied the news.
In a tweet, John Dumelo stated:
“I never met Nana Addo secretly. The last and only time I saw him was in 2014, 2 clear years ago.

Read earlier accusation by the personal assistant to the Akuffo Addo.
Dear John Dumelo,
Admittedly, the beauty of democracy is that it guarantees certain freedoms and fundamental rights, including the freedom of thought and the right to choose as a citizen of a country, which political party to support and the candidate to vote for.
However, in exercising this right, make all efforts to examine your conscience and give due consideration to honesty and integrity.Why cast aspersions on a man whose character you acknowledged as impeccable and worthy of the highest office of the land, only a few months ago, when u called on him to express your eagerness to campaign for.
Permit me to recall the hallow words you spoke about your namesake President John Mahama on your visit to Nana Akufo-Addo sometime last year. You were disappointed in the President for supervising a corrupt and incompetent administration, for which reason, you offered to go round the country and propagate the good message of Nana Akufo-Addo and the NPP.
Despite these damning indictment and your known affiliation to the NDC, Nana was generous with his time and urged you to be a good role model for the youth by striving for excellence in your chosen career.It’s all the more deeply regretable that despite his kind words and fatherly advice to you, you are willing, for the fleeting lure of patronage, to sell your soul. Well, you still have time to repent.
As you would no doubt have noticed, the wind of change is blowing and a new dawn will soon be upon this great nation come 2017. I urge you to be part of this change, for the sake of this and future generation. Ghana must work again.
Let’s rise for change!
