Popular Ghanaian female presidential aspirant Akua Donkor has disclosed that she is in desperate need of a husband to take the place of her late husband.
She said it has been tough staying without a man for many months, but she foresees an even more difficult period when active political campaigning starts in 2024.
"I haven’t re-married since my husband died. It’s been two years and my ring is no longer on my finger. I need to get married again because I need a partner as a female politician," she told Kof TV in an interview that was aired on March 1, 2023.
Speaking in Twi, she said she needs a man to be Ghana's maiden First Gentleman, suggesting that she will win the national presidential polls on the ticket of the party she founded, the Ghana Freedom Party (GFP).
