The outlet report that the former Member of Parliament for Assin South and former Education Minister, Prof Dominic Fobih, has tied the knot for the ninth time.
The woman in question, whose details including her name and profession aren’t known is said to be around the age of 27 years old. This means they have an age difference of 53 years old.

Update: Dominic Fobih has reacted to news about his current spouse
Professor Dominic has debunked some rumors that swirled after he got married on May 2023. He clarified that his recent marriage over the weekend is not his ninth union as speculated.
But the professor of psychology did not specifically clarify whether he had been married and divorced in the past or not.
Speaking on Accra-based Starr FM, he also denied that his wife is 27, stating that she is rather 31 years old.
“I don’t have nine wives, I have one wife, I just got married. I didn’t have a wife before so I’ve just got married. Who in Ghana has nine wives.? If anybody is commenting on nine wives the person has been misled,” he said on Tuesday, May 9.
Speaking on the radio show on Tuesday, the statesman added that “I’m a very strong-willed person and I’m always convinced about what I decide to do and is best for me.”
“I know why I’m doing this, and so they can tell all sorts of things. I didn’t marry for anybody, I married for myself,” he added.
