Fred Nuamah, the founder of the Ghana Movie Awards, has announced his intention to contest in the National Democratic Congress (NDC) primaries for the Ayawaso West Wuogon parliamentary seat.
He believes that he has the backing and support of the constituency and its people, and that works are underway to seize power for his party.
In an interview monitored by GhanaWeb, Nuamah explained that he has partnered with researchers to learn about the needs of the people in the areas and constituency. He calls his strategy “person-to-person,” as opposed to the late Prof. Atta Mills’ “door-to-door” approach. He is confident that things are going well, and that his plans are proceeding as intended.

Nuamah also addressed rumors that he was a former member of the New Patriotic Party (NPP). He denied the claim, stating that he has been a card-bearing member and registered member of the NDC all along.
He clarified that his work allows him to work with and favor everyone, regardless of party affiliation, and that he has been with the NDC since 2012.
In the 2020 elections, John Dumelo represented the NDC as the parliamentary candidate in Ayawaso West Wuogon and had the support of Nuamah and other celebrities who joined his campaign. However, the seat was won by Lydia Alhassan of the NPP.
