According to reports, Ghanaian Actor John Dumelo will be at the Jumeriah Hotel today to show solidarity with John Mahama as the president interacts with Ghanaians. Actor Dumelo has been a serious loyalist of the president and his party.
John Dumelo, who has more than five million fans following him on social media, hopes to use the opportunity to pull a lot of crowd to the gathering.
Popularly called JD, John said although he is in London on a business trip, he will make time to attend the durbar in which the President will account to Ghanaians in the United Kingdom.
According to him, he is convinced that the Mahama administration is on the right track and it is “only fair to acknowledge it and show support to the good works.”
Actor Dumelo has been an active and vibrant loyalist of the National Democratic Congress, NDC. However, his loyalty to the party has been noticed to be more conspicuous under the Mahama-led NDC administration.
Since the beginning of electioneering for the upcoming November polls, actor Dumelo has been seizing every available opportunity to canvass for President Mahama who is also the flagbearer of the NDC for the 2016 presidential elections.
Not only is Dumelo supporting Mahama/NDC, he has also disclosed an ambition to run for the presidency in future under the same party.
President Mahama is already in London attending the World Anti-Corruption Summit organised and hosted by the UK government. He is also billed to speak to the Ghanaian community in the United Kingdom today Friday. The president who has been touring all regions of the country for some weeks now on his ‘Accounting to the People’ mission, intends to seize the opportunity to also ‘Account’ to Ghanaians in the UK.
Meanwhile, rumours went round that UK-based Ghanaians whom the president intends meeting are even against his trip to the country. It was gathered that they are planning to stage a demonstration against the president, saying that he is not worthy to attend the anti-corruption summit.
The reports also indicated that these Ghanaians abroad are not happy the president is coming to join other world leaders to deliberate on how to fight the global problem of corruption, arguing that he is also guilty of the crime in question.
