Popular actress, Selly Galley has sent words of motivation to John Dumelo as he prepares for the December 7 general election.
John Dumelo’s colleague prays he wins the Ayawaso West Wuogon Parliamentary seat.
Selly makes this public statement after Minister of Foreign Affairs and Regional Integration was accused of looking down on the creative sector.
Shirley Ayorkor Botchwey, a few days ago, said “parliament is a very serious business” and “a serious place” and, so, they must reject actor-turned-politician John Dumelo, who is contesting Ms. Alhassan on the ticket of the main opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC).
“The place is not for those who think they can heal the sick. No! No! No! No! No! Do not let that happen. It is a serious place,” the MP for Anyaa-Sowutuom said, adding: “If you mistakenly vote for John Dumelo instead of Lydia Alhassan, you’ll always be watching movies at the movie theatre.”
In reaction, Selly Galley prayed that John Dumelo wins the election to prove critics wrong.
“I am completely non partisan but John! I pray you win this seat and prove to the Minister of foreign affairs, Madam Shirley Ayorkor Botchwey and alike thinkers that indeed, creative arts is an industry pregnant with ‘serious’ minds of great thoughts and doers of great deeds…
“Your victory shall serve as a clarion call to all echelons of powers, low or/and high that indeed creative arts and its players have truly arrived and ready to step into the big shoes of power rather than been the perennial faces of endorsement…#Idey4u @johndumelo1 #WeAreSeriousMindedPeople #JohnDumelo4AyawasoWestWuogon Now this is the real elections!”
