Popular US-based Ghanaian filmmaker, Leila Djansi has called on John Dumelo to lead the fight in fixing Ghana’s film industry.
After John Dumelo was defeated in the Parliamentary contest at the Ayawaso West Wuogon Constituency by NPP’s Lydia Seyram Alhassan, Leila urged him to try again by championing causes in the film industry.
Despite, John Dumelo’s defeat, the filmmaker asserted that he did well—and his effort will keep the MP on her toes.
She also frowned on elections being conducted on bribery.
Leila Djansi wrote on Facebook: “Elections conducted on bribery SHOULD always end in a loss. #GhanaDecides. BUT, my Jonivi did so well that, it will keep the MP on her toes to WORK FOR THE PEOPLE. Congratulations @johndumelo1 . Try again by championing causes in your industry; FILM. Let’s SEE your history of serving. There’s so much to be fixed in Ghana’s film industry. Please lead that fight and then, you come back trained and ready.
“Guys, If you desire politics in your future, start NOW where ever you are. Cultivate a habit of serving and leading initiatives. Don’t wake up one morning and start bribing, braiding, pounding and bonding cos you want votes. That’s disrespectful to the people. Start now! Brighten the corner where you are. Politicians need to stop taking voters for granted. You can’t bribe folks with laptop and when you win, your kid goes to Harvard and the voters kids struggle for desks and jobs. Very proud of how assertive Ghanaians are becoming. Hope the entire genpop catches up soon.”
