The National Democratic Congress’s (NDC) Greater Accra Regional Vetting Committee has, until further notice, put the vetting of parliamentary aspirants John Dumelo and Fred Nuamah of the Ayawaso West Wuogon Constituency on hold.
The two aspirants and others were supposed to go through vetting proceedings on Wednesday, April 5.
The Greater Accra Regional Communications Officer disclosed that the other five candidates will by the close of the day, Wednesday, be vetted.
Although the party has not indicated reasons for the suspension of the vetting of the two aspirants, the parliamentary hopefuls are reported to have failed to appear at the venue for vetting.
The party has, however, disclosed that it will decide on what to do next after the deadline for vetting, April 5 elapses.
Mr Dumelo and Mr Nuamah are actors but seek to pursue their political ambitions as parliamentarians for the Ayawaso West Wougon Constituency on the ticket of the NDC.
Mr Dumelo had his first run in the 2020 election where he lost by a very slim margin to New Patriotic Party (NPP) candidate Lydia Seyram Alhassan.
Dumelo considers Nuamah’s interest in the Ayawaso West Wuogon seat a betrayal of their friendship.
But, Mr Nuamah thinks is innocent of any malice. He has also claimed Dumelo gave his blessing for his quest to contest.
