For those who don’t fancy Western nuptial ceremonies, dubbed ‘white wedding’, you are safe – but those who do will perhaps end up in jail if 45-year-old youth organizer for the National Democratic Congress (NDC) in Oyarifa, who challenged President Mahama during the party’s presidential primaries becomes Ghana’s next vice president.
Mr. George Boateng who on phone accepted to be the running mate of Lawrence Jamial Kutin, an independent presidential candidate for the 2016 elections has vowed to abolish wedding ceremonies in the country.
“I will introduce social reform life and will abolish wedding ceremonies. I will also install discipline in family life. Wedding is not our traditional culture. Wedding has never brought peace to Ghana.
” . . The court is full of divorce case because of wedding. I won’t tolerate that,” he said in an interview with NEAT FM’s morning show ‘Ghana Montie’
He also assured that – “There will be a law to back traditional marriage”
Lawrence Jamial Kutin, the 41-year-old Electrician who hails from the Volta region recently picked forms to contest in the 2016 election.
According to Kutin who is also an NDC member – he is contesting the 2016 presidential polls because the NDC government led by President John Dramani Mahama has failed Ghanaians woefully.
And George Boateng says he is more than prepared to help boot President Mahama out of power as running mate to Kutin.
