After the Parliamentary election of the Ayawaso West Wuogon constituency, Maa Lydia of the NPP emerged winner making John Dumelo to be under constant mockery and criticisms on social media.
The winner, Lydia Alhassan amassed 39,851 out of the total votes cast in the constituency and John pulled 37,778 out of the total. The gap a bit closer than some Ghanaians could ever imagine.
While others mock the actor for losing to Maa Lydia, colleague actor James Gardiner has penned down words of encouragement to John on his official Instagram handle.
Consoling his friend James wrote; ”Kofi it’s normal to feel down and disappointed after all the applaudable hard work you put in during this campaign season. It was commendable and I want you to be proud of yourself! 👏🏾 👏🏾.
Let us not delve into figures and percentages but the outcome clearly shows that it was a close call (the very first time in the Ayawaso West Wougon Constituency). Though it didn’t go in your favor, you still made history. Build on that and never take your foot off the pedals. Remember that what defines us is how well we rise after we fall. You fought a good fight. Pick up from where you left off and march on with high shoulders and your head high. We move! 💪🏾 #idey4u”
