Some Ghanaians have questioned why actor John Dumelo was made to speak at the campaign launch of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) after the party’s founder, Jerry John Rawlings spoke.
Dumelo mounted the podium and extended a hand of invitation to Ghanaian youth, specifically affiliates of the opposition new Patriotic Party (NPP) to switch camp to the NDC because there are better opportunities there than in any other political party.
The decision to allow Dumelo speak after the former president got these attractions on Twitter:
