In an interview with Accra-based Okay FM, Kofi Jumah indicated that his son told him about the young lady over a year ago.
He said he didn’t know she was the daughter of the President until they met later.
“When I got to know it was the President’s daughter, I had to look at my son’s commitment level to the relationship because this is not something you can go into and leave just like that. I needed to be sure he was into the young lady,” he said.

“My son told me that they met in America, and she did not know that I am his father, and he did not know that the President was her father. He said they had known each other for the past four years,” he added.
He also commended the President’s daughter for her humility and pleaded with Ghanaians not to involve politics in the marriage of their children.
