John Dumelo for NDC national youth Organizer position
The ruling party in the just defeated general elections, National Democratic Congress (NDC’s) national youth organizer Sidi Abubakar Musah who defeated Ludwig Hlodze in 2014 to occupy the position is believed to have not lived up to expectations.
Even though Sidi Abubakar, is the National Youth Organiser of the NDC, there were indications prior to the elections that his powers and control of the youth wing are being usurped by some persons who decided to form a parallel structure to work with.
The new group sprang up such as ‘I Choose JM,’ and the likes sources claim, enjoyed the support of some powerful forces at the Flagstaff House.
Most of the members of the NDC party even before and after the elections consider Sidi to be one of the weakest among the leadership of the NDC, comparing his visibility to that of his colleague National Youth Organizer of the opposition and elected New Patriotic Party (NPP), Sammi Awuku.
However, information reaching www.ghpage.com indicates that , some bigwigs close to the flagstaff house are rallying behind John Dumelo to contest for the position as the national youth organizer of the NDC when the party goes into election in 2018.
John Dumelo is considered as very influencial among the youth as he was seen during the campaign admirably addressing NDC party supporters and urging the party young faithfuls to remain loyal to the party.
He is seen as a stopgap to bridge and mend the heart-broken most of NDC youth suffered after the painful lost of the election when is supported to assume that role.
You need to be reminded that , Ghana’s ace thespian, John Dumelo has made known his desire to become the president of Ghana.
He made this revelation at Hohoe in a health walk dubbed, ‘Walk for Mahama’.
Addressing the youth at the time , he urged the people, especially the youth not to take a softer line in their allegiance to the party.
“I will be coming here most of the time…… I urge you to keep the fire burning. You don’t have to lose guard.”
When asked whether he had any political ambition, Dumelo said, “It is my mind to becoming a future president.”
Aside all these , whether the socialite will consider or run for this tough position is yet to be seen.
