Read John Dumelo’s full statement below.
“To whom is may concern: my sentiments expressed on an Accra based fm station have totally been misread and misconstrued. Before I start off, I’m not a spokesperson for any political party neither am I a representative in the social circles.
The tapes are there for you to listen. The audio is available for anyone willing to hear exactly what I said on star fm. I said and I Quote” let’s give the president time to solve the problems, after all, if by 2016 these problems haven’t been solved We know what we will do.
Yes I did a tv commercial for the NDC in 2012 because I loved the message they preached. I must state here that it was purely voluntary. I wasn’t paid for that and I wasn’t expected to be paid for that. I did it for the love of the country.
I also said on star fm that if in 2016, any party preaches what will benefit the country I won’t mind joining that bandwagon. Be it NPP, Cpp or PPP. I have heard all kinds of insults and threats on my life because my statement was completely taken out of context.
I feel what is going on in the country. I have had to lay of 20 of my workers and close down 2 of my companies because of the economic crises. I feel the workers pain. You think I’m happy laying off my workers?
You think I’m happy running a company at a lose? I’m not. As at now I still don’t have a generator in my house. I sweat at night and I’m sure we all do. Let’s give the current gov till 2016 to fix the problems, that’s all I said. I feel what everyone else is going through. The problems have to solved for Ghana to move forward. As for the insults and death threats, it’s made me a better person. Long live Ghana! #dumsormuststop.”
