She disclosed that being a politician goes beyond likes of
posts or images put on social media warning that Ghanaian actor turned
politician could be banking his hopes on the wrong persons who have no
correlation with the constituency to win the seat.
According to her, politics goes beyond being a social media
hero and getting millions of likes as it is based on one’s relationship with
the grassroots persons.
” Politics is not about
pushing trucks in the community and putting it on social media to get 1m views,
most of the people are not even in the constituency, some are in Afghanistan
and Iraq. Politics is about what you do for the grassroots and youth in the
Constituency,” Hon. Lydia Seyram Alhassan revealed on
Accra-based Kingdom Fm monitored by MyNewsGh.com.
Popularity does not win votes – Tweeps advise Dumelo
In December last year, John Dumelo advised in similar fashion to get in touch with the
people because that’s the only way he can win votes.
to tweeps, he should learn from the story of Hon. Aponkye who had all the media
hype but lost the District Level elections to the shock of many who thought he
was set to win the polls hands down
them, it is high time Dumelo gets to the grassroots and gets to know the people
and their needs rather than riding on his popularity.

gh voters, hope u know wer to go to #HonAponkye“
