Actor-turned-politician, Fred Nuamah has said that he will not let politics ruin the relationship he has built with colleague John Dumelo despite their recent fallout.
Speaking on UTV’s United Showbiz, Mr Nuamah said that he sees John Dumelo as a brother and it will be a shame if their years-long relationship comes to an end because of politics.
“John Dumelo is not my friend, he is my brother, so I won’t let politics come between us. I won’t let politics destroy our brotherhood. Apart from him being my brother, NDC is one party so our issue is a house matter,” he stated.
Mr Nuamah said that people are not privy to what goes on behind closed doors adding “ for all you know we have resolved our issues.”
John Dumelo and Fred Nuamah have seemingly been on bad terms since they both announced their decision to contest in the 2023 elections on the ticket of the NDC at the Ayawaso West Wuogon Constituency.
Fred Nuamah in an interview had said he was surprised Dumelo decided to join the Ayawaso race again, claiming that the actor had told him he was picking forms to contest at SALL in the Volta Region.
He also claimed his friend gave him his blessings and approval to contest in the NDC primaries at Ayawaso West Wuogon.
However, in a later interview, John Dumelo denied all the claims, emphasising that Fred Nuamah knew he (Dumelo) would contest to represent the constituency once again in the 2024 election but he (Nuamah) went to pick the forms anyway.
John Dumelo noted that despite Mr Nuamah’s decision, he would contest and win the NDC primaries to vie for elections in 2024.
However, Fred Nuamah has expressed confidence he will emerge victorious.
He said on UTV that a poll his office conducted predicted he has already won the election by a landslide.
