There was a near scuffle between the parliamentary candidate of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) in the Ayawaso West Wuogon constituency John Dumelo and Lydia Alhassan, the incumbent member of parliament for the area who is also seeking re-election in December, during a debate organised by 3FM on Friday, November 27, 2020.
Comments made by Lydia Alhassan, who had reported to the event late, infuriated Mr Dumelo, a situation that led to the actor calling on the Member of Parliament to apologise to him and Ghanaians.
Mr Dumelo had indicated that the distribution of free laptops to tertiary students by his team in the constituency is by far the largest single initiative in the constituency.
“We have done a lot for the constituency. I’m a youth, an entrepreneur and a farmer. I know how it feels to be a youth in this constituency.”
“Our works a far in the constituency is to provide employment and aid to the constituents. Our laptop policy is the single largest Initiative in the constituency.”
However, Lydia Alhassan reacting to this comment said in Twi that the distribution of the laptop was not a thought-through project initiated by Mr Dumelo.
John Dumelo got upset following the way and manner Ms Alhassan made her comment.
He deemed it an insult and insisted that she apologised to him. He attempted to leave the venue after she failed to apologise but the hosts of the event, Johnnie Hughes and Alfred Ocansey persuaded him to stay on.
