Former Kumasi Mayor, Maxwell Kofi Jumah, has revealed how his son, Kwame Jumah, met and married Akufo-Addo’s daughter, Edwina Akufo-Addo.
He said the two met in America but his son did not know immediately that Edwina was Akufo-Addo’s daughter because “she is humble and did not behave like a president’s daughter”.
Jumah’s submission points out that Edwina is down-to-earth, modest, and lives like every other Ghanaian lady.
Kofi Jumah was reportedly speaking in an interview with Okay FM on Monday, after the traditional marriage ceremony between his son and Edwina.

Introduction of Edwina to the family
According to Kofi Jumah, his son once informed him that he had met a woman in America who he would want to marry.
He disclosed being left in the dark because he had no clue or information about this lady who had captured his son’s heart.
However, the day of introduction came and he recognised immediately that she was one of Akufo-Addo’s daughters.
Although she was humble and never behaved like the president’s daughter, I recognised she is the one, Kofi Jumah reportedly said.
From the day of introduction, Jumah said he made sure to ask his son questions because he would not want anything to go bad for them in their courtship.
This is not something you can just go in and out like that and so I needed to be sure of my son’s level of commitment to the marriage. I needed to make sure he was deeply interested in the young lady,” he stressed.
He said they dated for four years before finally tieing the knot over the weekend of October 10, 2021.
