Aspiring parliamentary candidate for Ayawaso West Wuogon on the ticket of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), John Dumelo has apologised for comments in a viral video which incites electoral violence.
The actor-turn-politician made known that his party will not spare anyone who plans on rigging the upcoming December elections.
John tweeted his apology on Wednesday saying :” I’m whole heartedly sorry for my comments in the said video. I’m a man of peace and will always promote peace. Let’s make Ghana and Ayawaso West a better place.”
In the video, John was seen addressing party faithful at a rally. He alleged that he’s aware his contenders and their supporters are planning on rigging the elections.
He added that as his political opponents are plotting to not allow the elections to be transparent, his party is ready to beat them up to the pulp when caught.
“Let’s be vigilant. We know they want to rig the elections but they’ll be caught and when they are caught, we’ll beat them up because this time around, we won’t let it go easily. We’ll beat you up and ignore the saying that let’s give it to God,” Mr Dumelo said.
Dumelo, therefore, advised NDC supporters to watch keenly the electoral proceedings, as well as stay, woke to apprehend electoral thieves.
He further intimated that NDC flagbearer, John Dramani Mahama will be the winner of the presidential race.
“John Dramani Mahama will be elected as the president of the Republic on December 7 and John Dumelo will also be named as the Member of Parliament for Ayawaso West Wuogon.”
