US-based Ghanaian filmmaker, Leila Djansi has congratulated John Dumelo after certified results from the Ayawaso West Wuogon Constituency.
Though John Dumelo lost to the incumbent MP Lydia Seyram Alhassan, Leila said in a Facebook post sighted by Zionfelix.net that he did so well.
The renowned filmmaker, however, spoke against elections being conducted on bribery. She stated such elections should always end in a loss.

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.”
