Ghana’s former Minister of Education and Sports, Professor Dominic Fobih, has spoken out against rumours that have been circulating online claiming he has nine wives. The 80-year-old politician recently got married in a lavish ceremony that was widely reported on social media, which has caused a lot of buzz due to the significant age difference between him and his new wife.
Despite the rumours, the professor has come forward to refute the claims, stating that they are entirely false and misleading. In an exclusive interview on Morning Starr on Starr FM, Prof. Fobih said: “I don’t have nine wives. I have one wife, I just got married. I didn’t have a wife before, so I’ve just got married. Who in Ghana has nine wives? If anybody is commenting on nine wives, the person has been misled. Those who are commenting are commenting on what they’ve read, and that is borne out of ignorance.”
The former Cabinet Minister also cleared the air on the age of his new wife, stating that she is 31 years old and a Medical Officer. He also expressed his conviction in his decision to marry, despite the public backlash he has received, describing himself as a strong-willed person who knows what is best for him.
Prof. Dominic Fobih was a legislator from January 2001 to January 2017 on the ticket of the New Patriotic Party, and he was also the Minister of Lands, Forestry and Mines during Ex-President John Agyekum Kufour’s administration. For the most part, his recent marriage has been the talk of the town, with many people speculating and spreading rumours about his private life.
In a nutshell, the professor’s recent marriage has sparked a lot of debate and controversy, but he has come out to deny all the rumours and set the record straight. He has emphasized that he married for himself and not for anyone else, and he knows what is best for him. The public should, therefore, respect his decision and allow him to live his life as he sees fit.
