Ghana Polls: John Dumelo hopes for victory over Lydia Seyram Alhassan


The National Democratic Congress’ parliamentary candidate in the Ayawaso West Wuogon constituency, Mr John Dumelo, says he is “in pole position to win” the seat.

The actor-turned-politician, however, indicated that the team awaits the Electoral Commission’s official declaration to crown his victory.

The Ayawaso West Wuogon constituency has been one of the highly-anticipated spots in the 2020 general elections.

Mr Dumelo is contesting the incumbent Member of Parliament, Lydia Seyram Alhassan.

While Ms Alhassan has told the media in interviews that she has retained the seat, Mr Dumelo remains optimistic of unseating her.

“We’re still waiting for the Electoral Commission to declare the final results. By the projection, I am in pole position to win when the results are verified by the EC,” Mr Dumelo posted on Twitter Tuesday, 8 December 2020.
