Fobih refutes 9th wife claim
Responding to the claims, the professor stated that he only has one wife and that most of the claims are due to ignorance and misinformation.
"I only recently got married; I don't have nine wives. I recently got married because I had never had a wife before. Who has nine wives in Ghana? Anyone making comments about the nine wives has been misleading. Commenters are making judgments based on what they have read, which is ignorant," Prof Fobih said in a radio interview with Accra-based Starr FM on Tuesday, May 9, 2023, per Graphic Online.
He added that he married for himself and not for anyone else.
"I have a strong sense of self and am always confident in what I choose to do and what is best for me. They can infer all kinds of things about me since I know my motivation. I married for myself, not for anyone else," Prof Fobih said.
The prominet eprominentducator identified himself as a strong-willed individual who understands what is best for him. He served as a New Patriotic Party (NPP) lawmaker from January 2001 to January 2017.
