The decision of Fred Nuamah and John Dumelo to both contest in the premieres of the National Democratic Congress for the nod as parliamentary candidates for the Ayawaso West Waguon seat in the 2024 is one that has generated a lot of talks.
Most of the conversations around the topic are questions as to why two friends who can be described as bosom friends will both decide to contest for the same seat.

Amid the numerous questions and the calls from some quarters that the CEO of Ghana Movie Awards steps down for John Dumelo to contest, especially after he contested for the same seat in 2020, Fred Nuamah has come out to speak.
In an interview he granted Graphic Showbiz which has been sighted by zionfelix.net, Fred stated categorically that he was not going to step down for his colleague and friend because it was rather too late in time.
In the interview, Fred Nuamah is quoted to have said: “Frankly, it’s late to step down. My brother informed me and a lot of people that he was not going to contest the Ayawaso West Wuogon Constituency again. He gave me his blessings when I made up my mind to contest…Truthfully, I am surprised about his u-turn because it was evident and crystal clear that he was not going for the Ayawaso seat anymore and rather invested in Guan/SALL.”

Fred went further to state that he rather expected John Dumelo to honour his promise of not contesting the seat so he also tries his chances.
“I would have rather expected him to honour his word when he said he won’t contest the seat and, therefore, throw his support behind me. Besides, the argument that my brother made history for the NDC doesn’t hold for me. Our party has been performing quite well in that constituency in previous elections before he contested the last elections…We have even won the presidential votes in Ayawaso before. We always come close to winning the parliamentary; we only lose it by some small margins. So, all the previous candidates, including John Dumelo, did well, but the ultimate is to win and not close a gap or place second,” he added.
