Entrepreneur Sues Ex-Girlfriend for Breach of Matrimonial Promise

In an intriguing twist of love and commitment, a Ghanaian entrepreneur, known as Otu, has commenced legal proceedings against his ex-girlfriend, Mercy Agyei, accusing her of reneging on a promise to marry him. This came after Otu had financially supported Mercy and her family over a six-year period, with expectations of a matrimonial future.

Otu's Financial Support

Their relationship began in the city of Kumasi, where Otu proposed and funded Mercy's university education. He moved her to Tema and continued to support her as she pursued higher education at two renowned institutions - Accra Technical University and Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology. Otu's financial support went beyond Mercy's education. The young entrepreneur established a business for Mercy's mother and also provided financial aid to Mercy's brother.

However, things took a turn when Mercy secured a job at a bank. After gaining employment, she called an end to the relationship, leaving Otu feeling betrayed. The entrepreneur responded by filing a lawsuit at the Kumasi Circuit Court, seeking GH350,000 in compensation for the money he had expended on Mercy and her family under the promise of marriage.

Public Reaction

The news has elicited mixed reactions on social media. Some sympathize with Otu's plight and support his decision to seek legal recourse, while others find the situation amusing. This incident mirrors a similar case reported by YEN.com.gh, where a woman sued First Atlantic Bank and her former boss for failing to fulfill the terms of a relationship.

The court has deferred further proceedings until February 20, leaving the public in anticipation of the outcome of this unusual case.
