"Vote NDC out if they fail, I feel what is going on in the country too" - John Dumelo






Read John Dumelo’s statement below:
"To whom is may concern: my sentiments expressed on an Accra-based FM station have totally been misread and misconstrued. Before I start off, I'm not a spokesperson for any political party neither am I a representative in the social circles.
"The tapes are there for you to listen. The audio is available for anyone willing to hear exactly what I said on starr fm. I said and I Quote “let's give the president time to solve the problems, after all, if by 2016 these problems haven't been solved we know what we will do”.
"Yes I did a TV commercial for the NDC in 2012 because I loved the message they preached. I must state here that it was purely voluntary. I wasn't paid for that and I wasn't expected to be paid for that. I did it for the love of the country.
"I also said on starr FM that if in 2016, any party preaches what will benefit the country I won't mind joining that bandwagon. Be it NPP, CPP or PPP. I have heard all kinds of insults and threats on my life because my statement was completely taken out of context.
"I feel what is going on in the country. I have had to lay off 20 of my workers and close down 2 of my companies because of the economic crises. I feel the workers' pain. You think I'm happy laying off my workers? You think I'm happy running a company at a loss? I'm not.
"As at now I still don't have a generator in my house. I sweat at night and I'm sure we all do. Let's give the current gov till 2016 to fix the problems, that's all I said. I feel what everyone else is going through.
"The problems have to [be] solved for Ghana to move forward. As for the insults and death threats, it's made me a better person. Long live Ghana! #dumsormuststop"
