Reminding the popular actor of how charitable they had been to him some years back, NPP warns Dumelo to refrain from violent attacks against the party.
The New Patriotic Party (NPP) has largely criticized Actor John Dumelo’s approach and style of campaigning in recent times; describing it as a politics of attack. The NPP slammed John Dumelo specifically for working against the Dankwa-Busia-Dombo tradition which claimed to have taken care of him[Dumelo] years back.
The Deputy Communications Director of the NPP, Anthony Karbo in an interview with Kasapa 102.5 FM said Dumelo should be advised that he cannot ride on the back of the NPP to bring himself to the limelight in the political realm.
These warning from the party comes in reaction to the comments made by John Dumelo few days ago at Wa in the Upper West Region, wherein he described the NPP as a violent party who pours acid at her members.
Reminding the popular actor of how charitable they had been to him during his undergraduate years, the NPP warns Dumelo to refrain from violent attacks against the party.
If Mr. Dumelo is interested in getting into the dirty gutter and unguarded politics of attack, he should know that this is the very party that took care of him sometime ago, when he was a student at KNUST, the party was there for him.
Mr Karbo went on to condemn the Ghana Education Service (GES) for ever allowing the actor into schools to carry out similar biased campaigns even when the law prohibits political activities at the second cycle schools.
What morals will a person like John Dumelo be teaching young people, what has he achieved,? We want John Dumelo and the GES to understand that this illegality that is being perpetrated; that he’ll be going round these schools where political activities are not allowed. We know that in the second cycle schools politics is not accepted so why do you allow him to campaign for Mahama? He queried.
He also reprimanded school heads for granting the actor access into their various schools in the guise of peace ambassador to campaign for President John Mahama. He concluded by saying that God is watching them.
