Dumelo clarified that his purpose at the center was to express gratitude and take photos with those registering for the upcoming election.

During this interaction, NPP agents approached him, claiming his actions were unauthorized but failed to provide a valid reason.

Dumelo expressed concern over what he perceived as the agents’ inflated sense of authority due to their government positions, leading them to try and prevent his engagement with new voters.

He recounted an incident where an NPP agent objected to a student taking a photo with him, escalating tensions.

Dumelo stressed that his presence wasn’t politically motivated but aimed at acknowledging and appreciating new voters.

He criticized the NPP agents’ actions as obstructive to meaningful voter engagement, contrasting it with the current NPP MP, Lydia Alhassan, who engages with voters in similar settings.
