The former British diplomat, in his usual sarcasm, said in a tweet that he wishes his friend well in political ambition.
The announcement that John Dumelo, who has been a strong supporter of the NDC and former president John Dramani Mahama, had picked forms to contest to be a member of parliament, has been met with mixed reactions.
John Benjamin, a long time nemesis of the actor, said he was politically neutral and was willing to spray John’s presidential limo.
“I have to remain politically neutral, I’m afraid, though I wish my friend, Mr Dumelo, very well. But when @johndumelo1 becomes President, I will personally spray paint his presidential limo any colour of his choice and for absolutely free,” he said.
The nominations forms and filing fees have been priced at ¢1,000 and ¢10,000 respectively, with a 50 per cent discount on the filing fees for women and persons with disability.
The NDC primary is expected to come off on Friday, December 28, 2018
