I am a believer in polygamy - Ras Mubarak

Ras Mubarak took to Facebook to thank the media and his colleague MPs, family and friends for supporting his marriage.

He said he believes in polygamy, according to his religion.

The MP on Sunday, February 4, 2018 walked down the aisle with one Huseina, daughter of the MP for Asawase, Alhaji Mohammed Muntaka Mubarak in Kumasi as his second wife.

He wrote: "Let me put it on record that - though I am unapologetically a believer in polygamy and my religion, and my proud Dagbon tradition and culture permit polygamy, I have one wonderful wife - Mrs. Huseina Mubarak."

A man under the Islamic custom is obliged to marry more than one if he is capable to cater for them. It is however frowned on to marry beyond four.

The second wife of the MP is also student nurse at the Tamale Nursing and Midwifery College.

It is gathered that most a number of colleague MPs from both Minority National Democratic Congress (NDC) and the majority New Patriotic Party (NPP) were in attendance.
