Ghanaian actor, farmer, and entrepreneur, John Dumelo, has been inspired by the recent controversy surrounding former Sanitation Minister, Cecilia Dapaah, and her considerable wealth.
Dumelo couldn’t help but think about the possibilities he could do with just a percentage of her financial resources after seeing how she made news by apprehending her housekeeper and others in connection with missing monies.
John Dumelo indicated that if he had access to such resources, he would considerably increase his onions and tomato farm. He detailed his plans to use the monies primarily to develop new irrigation systems and purchase high-yielding varieties in order to increase production and profitability on his farm.
In a post expressing his aspirations, Dumelo shared, “Only if I had a fraction of Cecilia Dapaah’s $1 million, the importation of onions and tomatoes from Burkina and Niger will reduce by 10% in 2024 and 19% in 2025. I will invest heavily in irrigation and high-yielding seeds and make some good profits. So help me God!”
Ms. Dapaah made headlines when she apprehended her househelp and others, alleging their involvement in the disappearance of her $1m from her residence.
