Actor-turned-politician Fred Nuamah has expressed confidence he will emerge victorious in the National Democratic Congress (NDC) parliamentary primaries in the Ayawaso West Wuogon constituency.
According to him, he is far ahead of his major contender, John Dumelo who represented the NDC in the 2020 election.
Speaking in an interview on UTV’s United Showbiz programme, Mr Nuamah predicted he has already won the election by a landslide.
“I have already won and I’m far ahead. The last poll conducted by my office indicated I was about 80% ahead of him while he had about 20%,” he disclosed.
The two who have come across to many as best friends for the past weeks have been in the news after Mr Nuamah announced his intentions to contest the Ayawaso West Wuogon parliamentary seat.
He was accused of stealing Mr Dumelo’s spot amidst calls for him to step down.
Mr Nuamah has, however, stated he is willing to engage his friend, Mr Dumelo but will not in any way step down for him in the race.
He, however, assured that he will not let politics ruin the relationship he has built with colleague John Dumelo despite their recent fallout.
Mr Nuamah said that he sees John Dumelo as a brother and it will be a shame if their years-long relationship comes to an end because of politics.
“John Dumelo is not my friend, he is my brother, so I won’t let politics come between us. I won’t let politics destroy our brotherhood. Apart from him being my brother, NDC is one party so our issue is a house matter,” he stated.
Mr Nuamah said that people are not privy to what goes on behind closed doors adding “ for all you know we have resolved our issues.”
