A renowed Ghanaian Actor, John Dumelo has withdrawn from contesting in the upcoming Ayawaso West Wuogon primaries of the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC).

According to a statement from the constituency office of the party, Mr. Dumelo and another candidate, Ewoenam Y. A. Attidokpo, withdrew from the race “due to some personal reasons.”

A total of 8 persons expressed interest in contesting in the elections to lead the party in the by-election for the constituency in January 2019, but at the close of filing on Saturday, December 22, only three persons successfully filed their nomination.

They are; Ekwow Acquah, Delali Kwasi Brempong and Donna Selassie Agbo.

Three other candidates, Alhaji Isaah Kamara, Catherine Abrokwa Mante and Kojo Twum Boafo, failed to file their nominations before the 5:00pm deadline.

No reason was given for John Dumelo’s withdrawal from the primaries. However, reports say Mr. Dumelo is not qualified to contest because he does not vote in the constituency.

The cost of nomination forms and filing fees was GH¢1,000 and GH¢10,000 respectively, with a 50 per cent discount on the filing fees for women and persons with disability.

The party has set December 28, 2018, for the primaries ahead of the by-election which will be held in January 2019.

The by-election has been necessitated by the death of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) MP, Emmanuel Agyarko.
