I will relocate to Ghana for President John Dumelo's inauguration - Jon Benjamin

Jon Benjamin, the former British High Commissioner to Ghana, has declared that he will return to the country the day John Dumelo is sworn in as President of Ghana.

In 2020, the actor entered active politics and ran for Member of Parliament for the Ayawaso West Wuogon Constituency on the National Democratic Congress ticket.

"I will relocate to #Ghana for @johndumelo's inauguration as President," Jon Benjamin replied to a Twitter user who inquired about his next trip to Ghana.

Mr Dumelo has yet to declare a presidential bid, but he continues to support former President John Dramani Mahama in his bid for reelection.

The former Ghanaian diplomat, who is both a critic and a supporter of John Dumelo, has criticised him in the past for his notorious V8 saga, in which a government vehicle was discovered in his possession.

When John Dumelo won the NDC primaries in 2019, Mr Benjamin used a tweet to congratulate his "good friend" and once again brought up the V8 theft story.

"@johndumelo1 ayekoo 

In reaction, John penned the following: "Jon Benjamin is a buddy of mine, and his tweets about me are complete nonsense. Though I am unconcerned, I have advised him to stop making such jokes because they are too costly." "
