There was no marriage between Wulomo and minor, it was a traditional rite – Chieftaincy Minister

Stephen Amoah Boateng, the Minister of Chieftaincy and Religious Affairs, has spoken on the controversy surrounding the alleged child marriage that occurred in Nungua over the weekend.

Mr. Boateng stated that the video circulating on social media portrayed a traditional rite, not a marriage ceremony, during an interview on JoyNews’ The Probe.

According to him, “during the event a lot of things were said and the information came out as if they were marrying the girl to the Wulomo [Gborbu Wulomo Nuumo Borketey Laweh XXXIII].”

He said that his Ministry, the Gender Ministry, and the Attorney General’s office swiftly acted in response to the public uproar, meeting with the Nungua traditional authority and the Ga priest who was involved in the incident.

“Through these discussions, it became evident that there were no intentions of carnal relations with the young girl,” he said on Sunday.

In order to properly remove the kid from the Nungua Community, Mr. Boateng and his staff worked closely with the police, emphasizing how important the child’s welfare was.

The government’s commitment to safeguarding the rights and welfare of minors in the nation is demonstrated by the Minister’s swift steps.

Mr. Asamoah Boateng has pledged to work with local communities and law enforcement organizations to maintain justice and accountability as the investigations move forward.

The girl in question is sixteen years old, not twelve, as Mr. Asamoah Boateng previously indicated.
