Ghanaian moviemaker Fred Nuamah has officially withdrawn from the National Democratic Congress parliamentary primary in the Ayawaso West-Wuogon constituency.
The producer cum-actor has expressed interest in contesting in the race which is also being contested by his friend John Dumwlo, a businessman and actor.
According to him, he is withdrawing from the race after extensive consultations with key stakeholders, without any external influence.
This was contained in a letter to the party’s General Secretary.
“I am writing to formally notify the National Executive Committee (NEC) of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) about my decision to withdraw from the Ayawaso West-Wuogon NDC parliamentary primaries. This decision was personal and was made after extensive consultations with key stakeholders, without any external influence,” he said in the letter dated August 7.
In his view, the party must present a unified front for the 2024 general elections hence the decision.
According to him, he is someone who prioritizes the party’s unity and the NDC flagbearer John Dramani Mahama project aimed at rescuing Ghana.
He has also pledged his support for John Dumelo.
He was optimistic John Dumelo would be the best to represent the NDC in the constituency and win the seat.
He appealed to his supporters across all levels of the party in the constituency to rally behind Dumelo and provide him with needed support.
He said ‘together, with a renewed sense of togetherness, they can secure victory in the 2024 elections and uplift Ghana from its current state’.
He thanked his numerous supporters at the branch, ward, and constituency levels for their unwavering support, dedication, and affection.
The actor noted that he cherishes every moment of their interactions and admires the enthusiasm of their grassroots in their pursuit of seeing the NDC and former President John Mahama reclaim political power to better the lives of the good people of Ghana.
