For those who will like to have white weddings after the December elections, you may be up to a no-show as the running mate of an independent presidential candidate has stated that the practice will be abolished once they come into power.
Mr. George Boateng, the youth organizer for the National Democratic Congress (NDC) in Oyarifa who accepted to be the running mate of Lawrence Jamial Kutin, an independent presidential candidate for the 2016 elections has promised to reform the social lives of Ghanaians.
“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,” he said in a telephone interview with NEAT FM’s morning show “Ghana Montie.”
He added that “…the court is full of divorce cases because of weddings. I won’t tolerate that.”
George Boateng says he is happy to partner with Lawrence Jamial Kutin, the 41-year-old Electrician who hails from the Volta region who recently picked forms to contest in the 2016 election.
Although Kutin is an NDC member, he has decided to contest in the 2016 presidential polls because the NDC government led by President John Dramani Mahama has failed Ghanaians woefully; and Mr. Boateng says he is more than prepared to help boot the NDC out of power.
