Kumbungu MP Ras Mubarak has said he has only one wife.
According to him, he married his latest wife Huseina after his first wife “packed out” of their home and files for divorce.
Responding to media reports that he has married a second wife, Mr Mubarak wrote on Facebook page that: “I’ve just woken up to news that I married an additional wife yesterday.
Let me put it on record that – though I am unapologetically a believer in polygamy and my religion, and my proud Dagbon tradition and culture permit polygamy – I just remarried yesterday after my wife then, packed out and sued for divorce a few weeks before the 2016 election.
“While we appreciate the media interest in reporting what is news, we wish to encourage the media to report what is factual. Mrs. Huseina Mubarak – my new and only wife – and I, are very grateful to colleagues from the NDC and NPP, friends, family and everyone who supported us in diverse ways.
“May God bless us all and strengthen every marriage.”
