John Dumelo, a member of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), is running for parliament from the Ayawaso West Wuogon Constituency. He has claimed that entering politics has nothing to do with accumulating fortune.
He stated that he wants to serve his constituents, which is why he wants to become a Member of Parliament (MP).
The actor claims that, rather than politics, he has always dreamed of making millions of dollars through farming.
“I’m just getting into parliament to serve my people and to receive my salary as all the other parliamentarians do. I have dreamt of making a million dollars through farming but not through politics,” he said on Accra-based TV3.
By dedicating himself to agriculture, Mr. Dumelo has gained the respect of many Ghanaians throughout the years.
The actor who also acts as a farmer stated his intention to start growing marijuana after the Narcotics Control Commission (NACOC) Bill, 2023, was passed into law in parliament on July 12.
