Call John Dumelo to order – Sammy Awuku

The National Youth Organiser for the New Patriotic Party (NPP), Sammy Awuku has urged the Ghana Education Service (GES) to immediately halt the political activities of John Dumelo, a movie actor on the campuses of some Senior High Schools across the country.

The effervescent youth organizer of the main opposition party insists the latter is in breach of regulation as regards political activities in Senior Secondary Schools.

The actor, the youth organizer said has been engaging in some talk-shows in selected senior high schools under the guise of a peace ambassador but in clandestinely campaigning for the ruling National Democratic Congress (NDC).

This latest move by the actor adds to his visible involvement in the activities of the ruling party as some members of the public late last month spotted him placing billboards and banners at vantage points in the Kumasi M

etropolis.

Mr Dumelo, according to the NPP youth organizer, has now stepped up his game and is now using second cycle schools to woo students into voting for the NDC flagbearer, an action he decried as shameful and irresponsible.

Mr. Awuku claimed the actor is currently using the recently launched Green-Book by the NDC as testament to campaign for President John Mahama.

GES Ban

Speaking to the Ghanaian Observer Newspaper, Mr Awuku disclosed that the GEs rules prohibit the conduct of any political activity in Senior High Schools.

He stressed that the GES has banned both political activism and campaigning from the campuses of Senior High Schools in the country.

A visibly worried Awuku, wondered why the Ghanaian actor has been given access to some known Senior High Schools where he has spoken to the students to vote for President Mahama under the guise of ‘a peace ambassador’ for the 2016 polls.

The youth organizer has therefore challenged the GES to either open the floodgates for all other parties to join in the campaign in SHS campuses or reinforce its ban to put the matter to rest.
