Ghanaian actor and politician, John Dumelo, has proclaimed that former President John Dramani Mahama is the only leader with the interest of Ghana’s Creative Industry at heart.

Speaking in an exclusive interview with Bola Ray on Star Chat, John Dumelo stated that the National Democratic Congress (NDC) will reveal more about the plans the party has for the creatives in Ghana as the days go by.

“Former President John Mahama has the Creative Industry at heart. Why is it that when it comes to elections they will want to involve a lot of creative people? Because they know we are a powerful block,” he noted. ”Once we say we are going this way we do that together. I know for a fact that when our manifesto comes the plans for the Creative Act will be spelled out back to back.”

He launched his campaign manifesto for the 2020 Election, where he promised to dedicate half of his salary to youth development in the constituency if he gets elected but lost to the NPP candidate Lydia Seyram Alhassan.
