John Dumelo accuses Ayawaso West Wuogon MP of organising abuse of NDC members

The Parliamentary candidate for the National Democratic Congress (NDC) at Ayawaso West Wuogon has accused the MP of orchestrating the physical abuse and attacks on his members.

John Dumelo in a statement alleged that police personnel at the various registration centres have often looked on whilst NDC members are assaulted.

He, therefore, cautioned that since the security agents have failed to act despite the numerous complaints to them, they will resort to alternative relieves to ensure that his party members are protected from ‘thuggery and hooliganism’.



The  Ayawaso  West  Wuogon  Constituency  has  once  again  become  a  scene  of violence  and  assaults.  There  have  been  persistent  reports  of  physical  abuse  meted out  to  registration  agents,  sympathizers  of  the  NDC,  observers  and  innocent persons  perceived  to  be  supporters  of  the  John  Dumelo  for  MP  2020  Campaign.

Within  the  course  of  the  on-going  registration,  agents  of  the  NDC  have  been brutalized  often  in  the  presence  of  the  police.  Official complaints have been lodged with the Police with no response to bring perpetrators to book thus far.

The  country  is  reminded  of  the  painful  incidents  that  took  place  during the Ayawaso  West  Wuogon  bye-elections  which  led  to  innocent  people  being assaulted  in  the  constituency  rendering  some  of  them  paralysed.

It  is  a  national shame  that  the  only  crime  of  constituents  that  day,  was  their  desire  to  exercise their  voting  franchise  leading  to  the  maiming  and  violence  the  whole  nation witnessed.

Residents  of  the  constituency will  not  forget  the  negative  attention  the happenings  of  that  day  as  they  played  out  in  a  government  commission  of  inquiry.

Every  Ghanaian  is  aware  of  the  recommendations  and  the  refusal  of  government to  act  and  allow  the  full  rigors  of  the  law  to  deal  with  individuals  found  to  have inflicted  violence on innocent citizens.

The  John  Dumelo  for  MP  2020  Campaign  team  wishes  to  serve  notice  to  the sitting  MP  –  Madam  Lydia  Alhassan,  that  it  is  her  duty  to  promote  peace  and serenity  in  the  constituency. 

Her  campaign  that  is  bound  to  fail  must  not  be  seen to  tacitly  approve  and  profit  from  the  violence  being  perpetrated  on  the  innocent constituents  of  Ayawaso  West  Wuogon  in  the  on-going  registration  exercise.

Should  she  continue  to  remain  indifferent  to  the  concerns  raised  that  she  has  been made  aware  of  severally,  alternative  reliefs  within  the  confines  of  our  laws  will  be sought  by  this  Campaign  team  to  ensure  protection  of  all  constituents  from  acts  of thuggery  and hooliganism.

“And help us to resist oppressors rule with all our will and might.”

Thank You.
