Dr. Kwabena Duffour’s Wife and Kids: Who Is The Businessman-Politician Married To? Meet All His Children

Ghanaian self-made millionaire, Dr. Kwabena Duffuor’s children are all grownups and well-established and heads of his various companies. Let’s meet his wife and kids.

Dr. Kwabena Duffuor is a prominent Ghanaian who served as the former Finance Minister. Currently, he is among the four persons who have so far picked up nomination forms to contest in the National Democratic Congress’ flagbearership race slated for May 13, 2023.

The four persons who have so far picked up the forms include former President John Dramani Mahama, former Finance Minister, Dr. Kwabena Duffuor, former Mayor of Kumasi, Kojo Bonsu, and businessman, Ernest Kwaku Krobea, per CitiNewsRoom.

On Thursday, May 9, 2023, Dr. Duffour filed an interlocutory injunction against the party following what he says are some discrepancies his team has identified in the party’s voters register to be used for the exercise, per MyJoyOnline. In a writ filed at an Accra High Court, Dr. Duffour indicated that the party failed to provide the required photo album register five weeks ahead of the elections as stated in the party’s rules. He stated that a partial photo album register was given to his team on May 4, a few days ahead of the elections rather than in March when they had submitted a request for one.

On Friday, September 10, 2021, Ghanaians saw how eager he is to become the head of the country as BrytFMOnline reports that Dr. Duffour visited the Jewish House of Prayer to seek the favor of God for his new political journey.

The former governor of the Bank of Ghana, and the owner of Excellence in the Broadcasting (EIB) Network, Dr. Duffour’s life has been well documented on the internet but his family and personal life remain not well tackled. Here’s everything we know about Dr. Kwabena Duffour’s wife and children.
