The lawyer for ex-president John Mahama wants a divorce from his wife Nana Aoye Lithur.
Furthermore, Nana Oye Lithur was the former Minister of Gender, Children and Social Protection.
Moreover, according to documents Mr Lithur said one of the main reasons for seeking divorce is the violent nature of his wife.
Petition by Tony Lithur to divorce Nana Oye Lithur
“When the parties settled down to marriage, petitioner began to notice some unnerving character traits of the Respondent. While petitioner was aware Respondent was aggressive in approach to many things. Nothing prepared him for what he later discovered of cruel and instinctively violent traits. She consistently exhibited physical violence and cruelty. This was against every person that has ever lived with the parties, either as household staff or relative.”
Also, the petition required Oye Lithur “required within 8 days after service hereof upon you. Inclusive of the day service to enter on appearance either in person or by solicitor at the Divorce Registry of the High Court, Accra in the Greater Accra Region of the Republic of Ghana should you think to do so and thereafter to answer this petition and that in default of your so doing, the Court will proceed to hear the petition and pronounce judgement your absence notwithstanding.”
