Ghanaian actor, entrepreneur and philanthropist, John Dumelo has disclosed he was appointed a tourism ambassador because of his love for tourism.

After news of his appointment went viral, social media platforms have been flooded with dissenting views on what necessitated the move. While some argued that it was politically motivated because if his affiliation to the ruling National Democratic Congress (NDC), others opined he deserved it as he has been travelling across the globe and can sell the country better.

But in an interview on Hitz FM’s Daybreak Hitz on Wednesday, John Dumelo mentioned that it was voluntary. According to him, he will not receive any gratifications for the appointment.

“The ministry decided to make me a tourism ambassador because of my love for tourism. I have been a tourism advocate for over five years. I will still continue going to tourist attractions in Ghana, put it on my social media and let people know of the wonderful places Ghana has. It’s strictly voluntary. The ministry is not paying me, neither am I getting anything from it,” he noted.
