Despite withdrawing from the upcoming National Democratic Congress (NDC) Ayawaso West-Wuogon parliamentary primary, Ghanaian actor/entrepreneur turned politician, Fred Nuamah, has revealed his plans to continue pursuing his political goals.
The CEO of the Ghana Movie Awards discussed his decision to withdraw from the race in an interview with Graphic Showbiz, which gave his close buddy, famed actor John Dumelo, the advantage.
Nuamah underlined that his departure from the political scene was only a brief interruption rather than an end to his political ambitions.
“My decision to withdraw from the Ayawaso West-Wuogon NDC parliamentary primaries might signify a temporary sabbatical from my political goals, but it doesn’t imply I have completely given up on politics. No!” he exclaimed about his future ambitions.
He claims that he is dedicated to his party and that he is prepared to participate in politics in a variety of ways.
“I shall support my party and Ghanaians in a variety of capacities. He said with assurance, “The future will take care of itself.
Given his fierce pursuit of the position earlier in the year, many were surprised by Fred Nuamah’s statement on August 7, 2023, that he was withdrawing from the NDC’s Ayawaso West-Wuogon parliamentary election.
Given his strong acquaintance with John Dumelo, who ran for the same seat in the previous general elections, the revelation not only made headlines but also raised eyebrows.
Their political ambitions initially seemed to put a strain on their friendship.
Nuamah then clarified that Dumelo had given the go-ahead for him to run for the NDC nomination in the Ayawaso West-Wuogon seat because Dumelo was interested in a different constituency.
Despite these complex relationships, Nuamah stated that their friendship was unaffected by his decision to challenge Dumelo in the primary elections.
Nuamah declared, “I believe that whatever happened has rather strengthened the bond we share,” in a rare show of cohesion. I have already contacted my brother and offered my support and endorsement for his campaign as I speak to you right now.
Nuamah’s support is more than just lip service; he reaffirmed his commitment to organizing his party’s members to support Dumelo’s campaign, creating a unified front for the NDC to win the constituency.
