Yvonne Nelson’s ‘dumsor’ demo was unnecessary – John Dumelo

Ghanaian actor, farmer and politician, John Dumelo has asserted that, Yvonne Nelson’s ‘dumsor’ demonstration held during former President John Mahama’s administration in 2015 was needless.

According to John, Yvonne went ahead with her demonstration even when the ex-president had promised to solve the problem.

“I don’t think it was necessary. At that time the President had promised to fix the problem and before he left, he fixed it. Then, Yvonne did the demonstration I’m sure that people were fed up and needed some form of action, but President Mahama said I will fix the issue.

“Fixing it is not a one-day thing and so I will not fault anyone, but you should have given him [Mahama] the due credit for solving it” he added.

Given the current hardship in the country concerning the hike in petrol prices and the passage of the E-levy, John Dumelo has asked Yvonne Nelson to lead another demonstration against the Akufo-Addo government over the controversial Electronic Transaction Levy also known as E-Levy.

“They have to do another demonstration for the E-levy. I paid 5,000 cedis and paid almost 70-something cedis. If I am to send that amount every day, imagine how much I will have to pay as E-levy.

“We can do the demo, but the people in power won’t listen, unlike John Mahama. We can walk naked to Agbogbloshie and nothing will happen” he stressed.
