Minister for Gender, Children and Social Protection, Nana Oye Lithur has taken her advocacy against child marriage on social media in a recent photograph showing her together with local sex therapist, Akumaa Mama Zimbi holding papers with the inscription #StopChildMarriage and #GhanaEndsChildMarriage.
Meanwhile president Mahama in an earlier statement has condemned the practice of child marriage in Ghana.
“I, even as a man won’t want to marry a woman I don’t love not to talk about a woman. Why should you be forced to marry somebody you have no affection for, and especially a child. If my daughter is below 18 and somebody attempted to marry her off, I probably will be in prison; I will commit murder”, he stated.
