Maxwell Kofi Jumah, the Managing Director of GIHOC Distilleries Company Limited has told Citi FM he had no idea that his son was dating the daughter of the President, Nana Akufo-Addo Edwina Dokua Akufo-Addo.
Maxwell’s son Kwabena Jumah and Edwina got married at the Presidential Villa in the Jubilee House on Saturday, October 9, 2020. The wedding, albeit high-profiled, was held without much buzz and it was only after the videos circulating on social media before it drew attention.
On how his son landed a ‘big fish’ such as the daughter of the president, Kofi Jumah indicated that his son told him about the young lady over a year ago.
He said he didn’t know she was the daughter of the President until they met later.
“When I got to know it was the President’s daughter, I had to look at my son’s commitment level to the relationship because this is not something you can go into and leave just like that. I needed to be sure he was into the young lady,” he said.
“My son told me that they met in America, and she did not know that I am his father, and he did not know that the President was her father. He said they had known each other for the past four years,” he added.
He also commended the President’s daughter for her humility and pleaded with Ghanaians not to involve politics in the marriage of their children.
