Prolific Ghanaian actor cum politician, John Dumelo says he would not bow out of the movie industry if he finally becomes a parliamentarian.
The promising political aspirant who is strongly targetting the National Democratic Congress seat for the Ayawaso West Wuogon constituency affirmed that it is acting that has made him who he is today
Speaking in an interview, the award-wining actor asserted that there were so many parliamentarians who were still practicing law, medicine, and other professions.
“Of course there will be one or two times where I will still offer advice in the acting industry, maybe I can still do one or two movies because it is part of me”, he stated.
He further explained, “certain careers you just don’t hang your boots, there is always an aspect of it that follows you in life.”
Dumelo would not wallow into the “bloody widow” tag that was labeled on NPP MP for Ayawaso West Wuogon, Lydia Alhassan who won a by-election in January this year that turned bloody.
“I feel like I will not comment on that issue…it happened, some people in the NDC said it is fair, other people said it was not. I am just neutral”, he added.
He vowed, “I will campaign with a clean heart and that is what will lead me to victory. I don’t campaign calling people names. It will not add a vote.”
John Dumelo’s acting career spans more than 15 years, has featured in lots of movies and won many awards.
His intention to become a politician came with heavy controversies. when he was accused of keeping a government Toyota Land Cruiser, which became widely known as the V8 saga.
