According to provisional results, the NPP’s Lydia Alhassan garnered 39,851 votes while NDC’s Dumelo came in second with 37,778.
Since then social media has erupted with a lot of Ghanaians trolling John Dumelo for losing in spite of spending a lot of money.
“@johndumelo1 Kofi it’s normal to feel down and disappointed after all the applaudable hard work you put in during this campaign season. It was commendable and I want you to be proud of yourself! . Let us not delve into figures and percentages but the outcome clearly shows that it was a close call (the very first time in the Ayawaso West Wougon Constituency).
The award-winning actor added,
“Though it didn’t go in your favor, you still made history. Build on that and never take your foot off the pedals. Remember that what defines us is how well we rise after we fall. You fought a good fight. Pick up from where you left off and march on with high shoulders and your head high. We move! #idey4u.”
