Kufuor: My wife deserves State honours

A former President of Ghana, John Agyekum Kufuor, has said if he had his way he would have decorated his wife Theresa with State honours.

According to the ex-president, his “veteran” wife has been helpful in maintaining a decent marital home for the many years they have lived together.

“We’ve been married for 51 years, so she is a veteran, a real veteran and sometimes I just say if I got the opportunity again I would decorate her with some State honours,” Kufuor said when a former Nigerian leader General Abdul Salami Abubakar paid a courtesy call on him at his Airport residence.

“She is my landlady. Now I think there is some understanding, she says I should behave and she would allow me to be,” Kufuor added.

Kufuor, while a sitting president of the young oil-producing country, in 2008 awarded a total of 268 citizens as well as some foreign nationals with State honours.
