The minister of finance, Ken Ofori-Atta, has shed some light on the circumstances that frequently compel men to engage in relationships outside of marriage.
In a speech that was videotaped and broadcast on June 8, 2023, the finance minister emphasized that Ghanaian systems frequently force males, in particular, to have side lovers in addition to their married wives.
“The issue in Ghana for marriages is that somehow, the system compels you to have a girlfriend. And it’s a very difficult thing. So, what do you do? When the whole society is moving in that direction?” he asked.
However, the finance minister Ken Ofori-Atta suggested that the alleged social issue can be resolved by classifying one’s spouse as a boyfriend or girlfriend.
“Now if you are able to define your wife as your girlfriend, you’ve solved the problem.
“It looks like just a statement, but I think it’s the heart of fidelity and a good society.
“So, let’s make our spouses our boyfriends and girlfriends, and we will have solved Ghana’s problem,” he added to the amusement of the audience.
