V8 scandal will not affect MP bid - Dumelo

The actor was in 2017 accused by government’s Assets Recovery Taskforce of refusing to hand over a state vehicle.

Mr. Dumelo, who has stepped up his political flirtation with the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC), faces stiff competition from Madam Afua Dogboe.

Ahead of the NDC’s Parliamentary Primaries scheduled for August 24, to decide who represents the party at the Ayawaso West Wuogon constituency, John Dumelo has been speaking about how the party can return to power in 2020.

He says all members of the party must be involved in party activities especially at the grassroots level.

According to him, the party previously failed because it downplayed the role of the grassroots.

“In 2016, we didn’t really involve everybody, the grassroots, especially the branches. Everything was done without the branches forgetting that the branches are the ones that actually hold the party together,” he revealed.

Mr. Dumelo has committed to “involve everybody in the party, from the top to the bottom” should he win the mandate of f the NDC in the August 24 primary.
