Ghanaian actress, Selly Galley has encouraged her colleague John Dumelo who is aspiring to be a member of Parliament for the Ayawaso West Woguon constituency.
According to Selly Galley, it is her prayer that John Dumelo wins the Parliamentary seat to prove to Shirley Ayokor Botchwey that there are serious people in the creative arts Industry.
Her comment comes after Madam Ayorkor Botchwey remarked that the Parliamentary seat is for serious minded people and not actors.
Though her statement has been condemned, Selly believes John Dumelo’s victory will send a clear message to her.
She wrote on Instagram: “I am completely non partisan but John! I pray you win this seat and prove to the Minister of foreign affairs, Madam Shirley Ayorkor Botchwey and alike thinkers that indeed, creative arts is an industry pregnant with ‘serious’ minds of great thoughts and doers of great deeds…
“Your victory shall serve as a clarion call to all echelons of powers, low or/and high that indeed creative arts and its players have truly arrived and ready to step into the big shoes of power rather than been the perennial faces of endorsement…#Idey4u @johndumelo1 #WeAreSeriousMindedPeople #JohnDumelo4AyawasoWestWuogon Now this is the real elections!”
