A supporter of the New Patriotic Party is worried as to why Former President, John Dramani Mahama’s first son married an Algerian lady in Dubai.

In a post in one NPP’s popular Facebook group, he quizzed why Shafik Mahama would marry Asma who’s an Algerian lady while we have several beautiful girls in Ghana.

Mahama’s first son married an Algerian girl in Dubai. Don’t we have nice girls in Ghana? Ghana money”, Samuel Bafoe wrote sharing photos from the wedding of Shafik.

The post sparked some level of controversy in the group. While others supported Samuel for his baseless claims, others also told him that he doesn’t make sense. And that the fact that you’re from country A doesn’t mean you cannot marry the love of your life from country B.
