I won’t stop acting even if I secure MP seat – John Dumelo clarifies

Ghanaian actor, farmer and politician John Dumelo has affirmed his commitment to maintaining his active involvement in the entertainment industry even if he gets the nod to become a Member of Parliament (MP).

He made this known after a fan asked if he would engage in acting even if he secures a parliamentary seat.

The fan’s question follows John Dumelo’s recent feature in a Nollywood thriller by Netflix Nigeria, ‘Blood Vessel’.

“If you win the elections you still go act?? @johndumelo,” the fan asked.

The movie narrates the journey of six stowaways seeking refuge from the challenges of life in Nigeria as they embark on a quest for better opportunities in South America.

Produced by Charles Okpaleke and directed by Moses Inwang, “Blood Vessel” is portrayed as a true-life account unfolding in Nembe, a community situated in Bayelsa State, Nigeria.

John Dumelo stands out as one of the top Ghanaian actors enjoying widespread popularity in Nigeria.

Even as he pursues a political career in the bid to become the next Member of Parliament for the Ayawaso West Wugon constituency, the actor continues to be a highly sought-after figure in African cinema.

During the 2016 campaign of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) Party, John Dumelo stood out as one of the most influential and active celebrities supporting the NDC government.

In acknowledgment of his commitment and loyalty to the party, former President John Dramani Mahama appointed Mr Dumelo as the Director of Operations for a pro-NDC youth group associated with the National Democratic Congress.

Taking a significant stride in his political journey, on July 19, 2019, John Dumelo acquired a nomination form to participate in the NDC primaries as a parliamentary candidate.

Following this, on August 24, 2019, he emerged victorious in the NDC parliamentary primaries, securing the nomination to represent the NDC in the Ayawaso West Wougon Constituency during the 2020 general elections.
