NPP Must Stop Their “Hypocritical” Attitude – Dumelo Fires Back

Actor John Dumelo has hit hard on the opposition New Patriotic Party [NPP] - saying they are a bunch of “hypocrites”.
He seems to have taken an offence in the opposition’s accusation that he is secretly campaigning for the ruling National

Democratic Congress [NDC] and their flagbearer, President John Dramani Mahama in a ‘Peace Tour’ he is embarking on in some selected Senior High Schools across the country.

NPP’s National Youth Organizer, Sammy Awuku who think otherwise of Dumelo’s campaign has called on the Ghana Education Service (GES) to immediately halt his activities.

According to him, the actor is rather campaigning for the NDC and president Mahama in the name of ‘peace tour’ – he also claimed the actor is using the recently launched 'Green Book' by the NDC as testament to campaign for the President.

However, John Dumelo in an interview with NEAT FM’s morning show 'Ghana Montie' rubbished Sammy Awuku’s accusation and questioned – “So what is wrong if I am campaigning for the president?”

“When their vice presidential candidate [Dr Mahamudu Bawumia] goes to the tertiary school, he talk politics and campaign for his party. What are they [NPP] talking about? I can do exactly what their running mate is doing but I won’t. The NPP must stop this hypocritical attitude,” he fumed.
