Attorney-General Gloria Akuffo gets personal; reveals she had kids with people's hubbies

Attorney-General and Minister of Justice, Gloria Akuffo has admitted that while still a younger woman, her love relationships were with other people's husbands and at that time, found nothing wrong with it.

In what may be described as a bombshell, Gloria Akuffo, Ghana's Attorney General and Minister of Justice, revealed in an interview with Joy FM that some of her romantic relationships while growing up was with some other people's husbands.

In the surprising revelation, Akuffo answered radio host Lexis Bill's question about the fatherhood of her children: "They were some people's husbands".

The government's top lawyer said for a young woman growing up in an environment where polygamy was not necessarily frowned upon, she found nothing wrong with her choice.

"You know my background. I was born into a big home and at that age you really didn't think there was anything [wrong]. But seriously, maybe I wouldn't have done it today.

But coming from a background of polygamy, you grow up not really seeing something wrong with having a relationship with someone's [husband].

And they were serious relationships, not that I was philandering or anything. Long standing relationships. And it was from those relationships that I had my children.

Because my doctor insisted I must have [the] children".

It has never been a mystery that many professionally accomplished Ghanaian women have not had the most exemplary marital lives.

This of course takes nothing away from their accomplishment but in a very conservative country such as Ghana, they are always thought of as incomplete in some way.

Meanwhile, Akuffo also stated that embattled CEO of gold dealership firm, Menzgold, Nana Appiah Mensah, popularly known as NAM 1 can not be brought to Ghana just yet.

According to her, although NAM 1 has been cleared in a case that was brought against him in the Emirati capital, Dubai, he cannot be brought to Ghana as has been demanded.
